08/26/2018: Markets were up for the week, as several major Indices made New Highs. Now the Indices should hold above the January Highs for the rally to remain healthy, as old Resistance should become Support.
A more “Bullish” scenario would have been for the Markets to shoot up thru the Highs with Huge Volume. That did not happen.
The “Bearish” scenario would be for the Markets to “Double Top” or form a “M” pattern, which would indicate a lack of new money and could cause Selling.
For the week the Dow was up 0.47%, the S&P 500 was up 0.86%, and the Nasdaq 100 was up 1.46%. The Long Term Trend on the Stock Markets is UP.
The Inflation Index (CRB) was up 1.77% and is Below the Green Line, indicating Economic weakness.
Bonds were up 1.08% for the week and Closed Above the Green Line, indicating Economic weakness.
The US DOLLAR was down 0.94% for the week, and should bounce near the Red Line soon.
Crude Oil was up 5.38% for the week at $68.72, and GOLD was up 2.46% at $1213.
MONEY WAVE BUYS SOON:
We are currently in 3 logged Open Positions, for the Short & Medium Term. There is 1 Investment on the Short Term Watch List.

A Letter to Sarah:
Hi Sarah. Above the Green Line is a System of rotating into Investments that generally have more Buyers than Sellers (Above the Green Line > 250 day average), and the highest Relative Strength (> 90 RS).
This System is designed to Buy High, and Sell Higher, Momentum Investing that requires the discipline to EXIT Investment position that are no longer the LEADERS, or follow the RULES.
Many are taught to Buy Low and Sell High, which can work well, but sometimes you must wait years for results.
We are basically using computers to identify the top 10% of Investments that have the highest flow of money into them. Then we Buy these on pull-backs to their Green Zones, based on the Money Wave.
Good trading, and tell your friends!
