I'm no expert, and I have no skin in the game, but I think we are far from the bottom.

NASDAQ and S&P futures trading halted until morning. This is automatically triggered by a 5% loss.

I'm reminded of my dad's sage advice immediately after the crash in '87- "well, it's too late to sell, and too soon to buy. Let's see how it shakes out first."

*I have no clue why this works, but the more points a line can hit, the more valid the line becomes. Probably because others are looking at the same lines.

This is turning into kind of an interesting chart.

What's so interesting about it?
The S&P can't seem to break through the glass ceiling.

So the S&P finally closed lower, week over week....
It looked like the market finally rolled over .
Who knows if I'm right or not?
Surely not me at this point.

Hey Polar Bear...
Any change in the put to call ratio that would make you think that this Trump rally is waning ?

Just the opposite- indicators are saying this pitch is just getting wound up. Commercials are drifting towards the long side (488:466k contracts), while short term traders are short by about the same percentages. Guess who I think is right?

That was kind of interesting- yes? Commercials were right (shocker). Bias currently is short, but not hugely so (437K vs. 459K).

This chart fascinates me. I had a couple of buddies ask me if I sold my TRP (Trans-Canadian Pipeline) after Obama put the stops on the project. Hmmm... I didn't. For a different reason- I've owned them since the late 90's. There's never really been a time to sell that one... just to accumulate more when it spits up a hairball. (Pays a 3.5% dividend too)

Notice how the MACD indicator was turning up while the stock was still plummeting? Accumulation going on... those indicators tell a story.

The MACD indicator didn't start going up until the stock itself did.
That being said, yes, it was a great buy indicator according to that chart.
What is you take on the Russell 2k ?
I'm pretty heavily into that at the moment.

Look at the MACD line crossover. It's a lagging indicator- the way I have this chart set up. But I'm a LT kind of guy.

RUT has a nice strong chart. I personally think everythings getting a little overextended and needs a break at some point.

A shorter term view, with Bollinger Bands.



Could see a dive down to the lower Bollinger's. News will say it's a reaction to the Immigration Ban. I say it's just overbought and needs a rest.
