EC Short Term Trend Is Trapped
The short-term uptrend is trapped inside a larger medium-term downtrend. As a result, the short-term uptrend can only reach up so far before it is met with selling. I think this is what happened to the market on Friday.
The Short-Term Trend For Year End
The number of new 52-week lows has dropped back down to a level where stock prices do a better job of moving higher, and where it is a bit safer for us to try to take advantage of the uptrend. But watch this chart everyday.
Talk Of A Crash
There is some talk of a crash. We've gone from annoying lectures about how normal it is for the market to have significant corrections, to discussions about the signs to look for when the market is about to crash.
The Short-Term Trend Ahead
I doubt we'll get much of a short-term rally until after the midterms, and then I expect some market strength through to the end of the year. The only problem with this view? Everybody else thinks the same thing.
New Short-Term Uptrend Ahead?
Are we ready for a new short-term uptrend? I'd say we are getting close, and on watch for the signs. My guess is that the market continues to struggle until after the midterm elections.
More Random Thoughts
Based on charts and the stochastic, I wonder if the market is ready for a bit of a short-term counter-rally back up to the point where support broke on Thursday.
