7/24/2022 Markets were higher for the week as the weaker “darling stocks” from last year finally popped up off the bottom. The FEAR has disappeared as some Earnings have been better than expected, and long term Interest Rates have dropped. So the Indices are returning up near the Green Line (like they always do).
The FED will probably raise short term Interest Rates 3/4 of a point on July 27th, and many are expecting more tightening in the future. But FED Tightening and the slower Economy has already caused the Commodities to drop 17 % off the Highs and long term Interest Rates are coming down. Weaker commodities like Steel, Copper, Aluminum, Silver & Lumber are now in Bear Markets (down trends).
Eventually the FED will realize that they tightened a year too late, and have probably tightened too much. Once the Market and Investors realize that the July 27th FED raise could be the last, we could see a more powerful rally in the Markets (back up near the Green Lines).
But for the Markets to return back up to the January Highs, we probably will need the “sugar high” of Printing from the FED again. It is possible that the FED could change course and begin Printing again before the November Elections…
The strongest Leaders are now back down to the Green Zones for Weekly Buy Signals below. A big Market sell off like we had helps us identify which investments are the strongest (still Above the Green Lines). Leading Energy, Commodities & Chemical Stocks should be able to re-test the recent Highs.
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.
More action this week on the Day Trading Scrolling Charts.
We have not had many intra-day Trade Alert signals lately as the Volume has been too Low with the Buy Signals. These low Volume Buy Signals tend to pop up and quickly fade back down. We like to see High Volume on rallies.
For the week the Dow was up 2.05%, the S&P 500 was up 2.59%, and the NASDAQ 100 was up 3.47%. Currently the major Stock Indices are Below the Green Lines (AVOID and own stronger Investments here).
The Inflation Index (CRB) was up 1.27% for the week and is Above the Green Line, indicating Economic Expansion.
Bonds were up 2.08% for the week, and are Way Below the Green Line, indicating Economic Expansion.
The US DOLLAR was down 1.20% for the week and is Way Above the Green Line.
MONEY WAVE BUYS SOON
Be patient and WAIT for Green Zone Buy Signals!

QUESTION: Jose M writes “Morning, I seem to have difficulties on finding the Money Wave chart on the ETFs. Thanks.”
ANSWER: First go to MY TRADING DASH BOARD. Then the Charts with the Money Waves can be pulled up by clicking on the Symbol of the Investment on the Watch List or Current Positions links in every Daily email.
The Money Wave is the Red and Green Zone on the bottom part of the Chart. Buy when the Money Wave has gone down into the Green Zone, and then turns up above 20.
