There's no question about it, the markets can be very difficult at times. On the other hand, you can laugh all the way to the bank if you approach the markets in a systematic way.
I was looking once again at the S&P 500 and many people have said the market has gone up, not on the fundamentals, but on the perception that things are going to be better. Perception is one of the most powerful elements of the market. I would say that perception trumps both the fundamental and technical.
The S&P 500 has seen remarkable recovery from the lows that were seen earlier this year. However, all of that may come to an end as we fast approach a strategic level for this market. There are two major technical indicators that are colliding at a crucial point and time. Unless you're aware of these indicators, it could be very expensive.
In todays short video, I explain both the technical indicators we are discussing and also the important time frame that we are just about to enter.
I think you will find today's video not only interesting, but also educational.
Today we are going to be examining the NASDAQ Index. This market, which made its peak in 2000 at the height of the dot com bubble, remains in a secular bear market.
After making a low in March of 2001, this market has had multiyear recovery which has rallied it very close to a 50% Fibonacci retracement level. After a nearly 50% recovery, this market now appears to be faltering.
The months of September and October are now with us and both of these months tend to be treacherous for the equity markets. We would not be surprised to see more of a two-way trading market before it eventually falls on its own weight and resumes a downward path. This is what we expect to happen, however, we are going to rely on our Trade Triangle technology to give us the perfect timing for that event.
Imagine not having access to any financial news stories. The only information you have about the market is the market itself.
Would you be a better trader or a less successful trader?
I think you would be a better trader. I have often said that the market is the best news provider in the world. It's up the minute and it reflects both domestic and international issues. The success of our "Trade Triangle" technology is based upon market action.
In my new short video, I'll take a big look at the S&P 500 market and where I expect it will head in the months to come.
