06/03/2018: Markets were up slightly for the week, after the S&P 500 went down and bounced off the Red Line (50-day avg.) For the week, the Dow declined 0.5%, the Nasdaq rose 1.6% and the S&P 500 gained 0.5%.
The major Indices are Above the Red Lines (50-day avgs.) and could re-test the Highs in a month or two. Closing Below the Red Lines would be “Bearish”. The Long Term Trend is UP.
The Strong Energy Sector bounced up from the Green Zones for some Money Wave Buys last week.
The Inflation Index (CRB) is correcting back down to the Red Line, but is in a mild Up-Trend.
Bonds had a another big rally, and were back Above the Green Line for 3 days this week before failing. Is the Economy slowing down?
The US DOLLAR is still strong, but over-bought.
MONEY WAVE BUYS SOON:
Be patient and WAIT for Green Zone Buys!

QUESTION: “I am puzzled by the SGMO SANGAMO THERA buy recommendation as the SCTR score is only 37.5?”
ANSWER: Thank you for writing. The SCTR rank from Stock Charts is weighted too much to the last 90 days of trading. We prefer the longer term Relative Strength from Investor’s Business Daily or http://www.etfscreen.com.
But the Relative Strength of SGMO at IBD is still only 80. (Also there are 2 values of SCTR on StockCharts’ Chart… The lower one is a 155 day moving average which is 84. Please use that one).
We will probably amend the Rules on Long Term Trading to only 80 R S, as very few Investments stay up at 90 R S after correcting down to the Green Line.
