1/16/2022 Markets were slightly lower for the week. The Markets tried to rally from Monday’s Low, but there was very Low Volume as the Buyers did not come in. Then on Friday the Markets went back down to re-test the recent Lows. So the Bulls are hoping for a “W” Pattern back up soon, on Higher Volume.
If good Buying does not come in soon, then the Markets might have to drop to a lower level to bring in more buying from Smart Money. Smart Money is being very cautious, since the FED Printing and Tapering should reduce the amount of liquidity in the Markets.
If you continue to Follow the Green Line System, your Money should flow into the Strongest areas and your account value should be able to grow in both Bull and Bear Markets.
There has been plenty of action on the Day Trading Scrolling Charts.

QUESTION: Steve V. writes “Do you do both long and short positions or does someone just invert the rules in a down market?”
ANSWER: Yes, invert the Rules to Sell Short (Below the G L, Below 10 R S, Dropping below 80 on the Money Wave).
We will wait until the Market is in a Bear (below the Green Line), and not Short the next Correction back down to Green Line.
Once the Market is BEAR, we will mainly do Inverse Funds, as most investors don’t understand Shorting…
The Leaders should have nice pops up if they hold above the G L after the next Correction, and we don’t like to Sail into the Wind.
Good trading and tell your friends!
