2012-10-16 16:00:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: good day
2012-10-16 16:00:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: how is everyone?
2012-10-16 16:01:49 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: Well thank you, and you?
2012-10-16 16:02:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: doing fine...thanks for asking!
2012-10-16 16:02:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...any questions or comments before we get started??
2012-10-16 16:02:52 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: Just one question...
2012-10-16 16:03:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you can have more than one...
2012-10-16 16:03:12 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: In the Weekly Breadth report, you wrote ..." the expectation from there will be for another "run" to new price highs in many of the major market indices both domestically and globally into the 1st quarter of 2013."  Can you go through how you came up with that timing of Q1-2013?
2012-10-16 16:03:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that was two weeks ago, right?
2012-10-16 16:03:51 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: This weekend
2012-10-16 16:03:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let me check
2012-10-16 16:04:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: time and space are fleeting me these days
2012-10-16 16:04:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one sec
2012-10-16 16:04:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: ahhh...
2012-10-16 16:04:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: ok
2012-10-16 16:05:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: some of it was based on the preceding quote
2012-10-16 16:05:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: "with the interest rate sensitive A/D lines continuing to promise higher prices in the future"
2012-10-16 16:06:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so the blueprint becomes
2012-10-16 16:06:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that we're likely to either bounce off or snapback to the accelerated advancing A/D lines
2012-10-16 16:06:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then test the longer term rising bottoms lines
2012-10-16 16:06:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and since the Bond and Preferred A/D's continue to make new highs
2012-10-16 16:06:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: once that challenge is met
2012-10-16 16:07:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we should see higher price highs into the 1st quarter of 2013
2012-10-16 16:07:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the "canary in the coal mine" is an important idea here
2012-10-16 16:07:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the canary being the Bond and Preferred lines
2012-10-16 16:07:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as long as they continue to make higher highs
2012-10-16 16:08:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this shows that liquidity is plentiful to absorb a more robust correctional period of more than a couple of days
2012-10-16 16:08:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and once we move back to our "mean"
2012-10-16 16:08:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we should be constructive enough to see higher price highs in the major market indices
2012-10-16 16:09:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that is unless we start seeing continued strength over the next week or so
2012-10-16 16:09:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then we'll likely move into higher highs for the next several months
2012-10-16 16:09:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and again peaking out sometime in the 1st quarter of 2013
2012-10-16 16:09:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one things for sure...
2012-10-16 16:10:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we continue to be in an intermediate term uptrend at this time
2012-10-16 16:10:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but there are more and more indications that we're likely to trend sideways for a while
2012-10-16 16:10:51 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: It is the timescale that I don't get..- how you arrived at that...
2012-10-16 16:11:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: what is the usual amount of time that the MCO remains above or below its zero line?
2012-10-16 16:11:21 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: 6 weeks
2012-10-16 16:11:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...so far we've been below the zero line for 2 weeks?
2012-10-16 16:11:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let me check
2012-10-16 16:11:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: on and off for a month
2012-10-16 16:12:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the NYSE breadth MCSUM
2012-10-16 16:12:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we see that we're still way above the zero line here
2012-10-16 16:12:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with a +541 reading today
2012-10-16 16:13:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: each 250 mark on the MCSUM usually takes a week to move to the next level (with all things being equal)
2012-10-16 16:13:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so if we are in a correctional pattern
2012-10-16 16:13:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the MCSUM will take about 2 weeks to move to zero from here
2012-10-16 16:13:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you have to figure that there's going to be a bounce - maybe a week - off the zero line
2012-10-16 16:13:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then a move below the zero line as we attempt to wash out the weak hands
2012-10-16 16:14:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: another week to the -250 level
2012-10-16 16:14:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so based on our moving in a "straight line" it will take about a month for us to move to the -250 level
2012-10-16 16:14:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: add about a week for November holidays in the US
2012-10-16 16:14:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that puts us at the end of November
2012-10-16 16:15:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if capital gains taxes are going to increase next year here in the states
2012-10-16 16:15:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we'll probably see continued weakness into December OPEX
2012-10-16 16:15:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: bottom
2012-10-16 16:15:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then rally into the 1st quarter
2012-10-16 16:16:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so a little technical...a little fundamental...and a little bit of experience
2012-10-16 16:16:50 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: OK, thanks, I see the logic of it now.
2012-10-16 16:16:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: keep in mind that my comments on the weekend data tends to be more "sweeping" than what we talk about in here
2012-10-16 16:17:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: I take the chat and the breadth data charts as two different angles of analysis
2012-10-16 16:17:31 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: I recognize that they are broader
2012-10-16 16:17:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the chat is more for fine tuning
2012-10-16 16:18:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but it's based on the larger degree of trend in which the weekend charts provide
2012-10-16 16:18:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as long as the two compliment each other
2012-10-16 16:18:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in the final analysis
2012-10-16 16:18:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then our confidence is higher on our blueprint
2012-10-16 16:18:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: example
2012-10-16 16:18:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if the Bond and Preferred were declining here
2012-10-16 16:19:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then the expectation of higher price highs isn't as confident
2012-10-16 16:19:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as this would mean that liquidity...the amount of cash available to push prices higher...was draining from the system
2012-10-16 16:19:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now
2012-10-16 16:19:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this doesn't necessarily mean a top either
2012-10-16 16:19:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as we have seen over the decades
2012-10-16 16:20:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that just an emotional spark is sometimes that's all that's needed for prices to move to new highs
2012-10-16 16:20:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the example here is the 1999 rally in the NASDAQ
2012-10-16 16:20:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where the NASDAQ breadth MCSUM remained below its zero line for much of the rally
2012-10-16 16:20:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and basically moved sideways between the zero line and the -250 level
2012-10-16 16:21:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but in this case
2012-10-16 16:21:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as long as the Bond CEF continues to make higher highs
2012-10-16 16:21:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it PROMISES us that we will see higher stock prices in the not too distant future
2012-10-16 16:21:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just as you have seen in the past
2012-10-16 16:21:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and under some of the worse conditions one could imagine
2012-10-16 16:22:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anyway...I try to be as reasonable in that review as possible given what we have to work with
2012-10-16 16:23:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the other thing that helps in this kind of forecast
2012-10-16 16:23:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is that we have the global markets (AORD, DAX and FTSE) showing the same kind of bullish configurations right now
2012-10-16 16:24:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one would think that if we were looking at a longer term top
2012-10-16 16:24:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: a top in which Armageddon was upon us
2012-10-16 16:24:44 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that we would at least showing some inconsistencies in these individual market places outside of the US
2012-10-16 16:25:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anyway...I hope I answered your question
2012-10-16 16:26:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: thanks for asking
2012-10-16 16:26:04 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: Yes thank you
2012-10-16 16:26:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anyone else?
2012-10-16 16:26:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: how did we do today anyway...let me check
2012-10-16 16:26:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: up 127 on the Dow
2012-10-16 16:27:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we have now basically erased all of last weeks decline in two days
2012-10-16 16:27:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: not bad
2012-10-16 16:27:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: also notice if you will
2012-10-16 16:27:44 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where we found support
2012-10-16 16:27:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: right on the 50 day EMA
2012-10-16 16:28:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which reaffirms the intermediate trend as being higher
2012-10-16 16:28:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: though the MID and SML pattens remain a bit soft here
2012-10-16 16:28:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...let me get DP up and we'll get started
2012-10-16 16:29:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: after finding support around the -50 level
2012-10-16 16:29:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the NYSE CO breadth MCO has not only snapped back to its zero line
2012-10-16 16:29:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but it closed above it today
2012-10-16 16:30:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and also closed above the recent highs seen on the chart
2012-10-16 16:30:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this should be enough of a push to move the NYA index to higher highs
2012-10-16 16:30:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or at the very least another challenge of the 8500 level
2012-10-16 16:31:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we also generated a crossover buy signal today on the NYSE CO breadth components
2012-10-16 16:31:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but they remain below last weeks highs
2012-10-16 16:31:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so between the two
2012-10-16 16:31:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we continue to show money flow as being somewhat out of sync here
2012-10-16 16:32:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: similar to back firing on a car when the spark plugs aren't exactly sitting square
2012-10-16 16:32:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the CO NYSE breadth MCSUM
2012-10-16 16:33:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and this spurting effect is likely to give us a classic ledge pattern
2012-10-16 16:33:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that should then give way to our eventual test of the MCSUM zero line
2012-10-16 16:33:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so lets continue to call it a trading range
2012-10-16 16:33:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with 8250 on the low side and 8500 on the high side
2012-10-16 16:34:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we're now in the process of a transverse to the top of the range
2012-10-16 16:34:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: at this point
2012-10-16 16:34:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and unless we continue to see better money flow here
2012-10-16 16:35:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this will likely be our tradable high that we've expecting for the last month for the middle of October
2012-10-16 16:35:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with any new price highs showing bearish divergences with price and the NYSE CO breadth MCO
2012-10-16 16:35:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: on the flip side
2012-10-16 16:36:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we have challenged and successfully held our snapback to what was the price highs of last spring
2012-10-16 16:36:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we are about to re-initiate the rally higher
2012-10-16 16:36:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so as we talked about last week
2012-10-16 16:36:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: shorts should had been hit and run affairs and all positions should be out for now
2012-10-16 16:37:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: while holding longs with trailing stops
2012-10-16 16:37:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the composite NYSE breadth MCO
2012-10-16 16:37:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and here too we closed above the zero line
2012-10-16 16:37:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we did NOT take out the previous highs of a couple of weeks ago
2012-10-16 16:38:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you will notice though that this snapback did come in right where needed for the buyers to hold the +500 level on the composite NYSE breadth MCSUM
2012-10-16 16:38:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as was our expectation from last week
2012-10-16 16:39:03 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we also see that we have a crossover buy signal here on the NYSE breadth MCO components
2012-10-16 16:39:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we're still in need of some additional follow through to turn this technical bounce into something more longer lasting
2012-10-16 16:40:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this is also a good example of how the level of MCSUM can help us in determining in what we can expect from prices at any given time
2012-10-16 16:40:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: here we have the MCSUM above the +500 level
2012-10-16 16:40:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which would make it difficult for the sellers to mount up anything more than just a couple of days of decline
2012-10-16 16:41:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: before the "basketball in the deep end of the pool" was released
2012-10-16 16:41:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and whoosh...up we went today with a gap
2012-10-16 16:41:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the NASDAQ breadth MCO
2012-10-16 16:41:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and here we have just about made a full snapback to the zero line
2012-10-16 16:42:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and this again is slowing the rate of descent in the NASDAQ breadth MCSUM as it approaches its zero line
2012-10-16 16:42:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we also see that both of the NASDAQ MCO components not only remain below their zero line
2012-10-16 16:43:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we remain on a crossover sell there
2012-10-16 16:43:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so between the two marketplaces
2012-10-16 16:43:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we are definitely out of sync
2012-10-16 16:43:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we are also still seeing weakness overall
2012-10-16 16:43:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and when a pattern "smells" it can mean only one thing
2012-10-16 16:44:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes...an Elliott "B" wave
2012-10-16 16:44:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just as we discussed last week as one of our options from our "oversold" condition
2012-10-16 16:44:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but at the same time
2012-10-16 16:44:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the upside objective here for the NASDAQ is for another 50 points higher
2012-10-16 16:45:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so we can't continue to be bearish against the rally...at least not yet
2012-10-16 16:45:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: my sense here is that
2012-10-16 16:45:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with the ISEE going to a reading below 80 last week
2012-10-16 16:45:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that we're likely to keep rather bouyant now into the Friday's OPEX
2012-10-16 16:46:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: to produce the maximum pain for both the call and put buyers
2012-10-16 16:46:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for the calls...they peaked out on the 9/14 top
2012-10-16 16:46:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for the puts...last weeks test of the NYA trading range
2012-10-16 16:47:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so it's likely that stock prices are going to close somewhere in between the two on Friday
2012-10-16 16:47:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we did see some nice buying again in the NDX breadth MCO today
2012-10-16 16:48:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as it now tests its recent highs
2012-10-16 16:48:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and at the same time
2012-10-16 16:48:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the NDX components produced a crossover buy signal today as well
2012-10-16 16:48:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as was our expectation from last week
2012-10-16 16:48:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we are in the process of trying to hold in and around the -250 level on the NDX breadth MCSUM
2012-10-16 16:49:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with today's reading of a -304
2012-10-16 16:49:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: once we get our small snapback here to what was the horizontal pattern support we see on the chart
2012-10-16 16:49:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we should then unwind to or towards the -500 level
2012-10-16 16:49:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: at least that's what the bears are hoping for here
2012-10-16 16:50:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for the bulls
2012-10-16 16:50:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in order for them to show a good turnaround
2012-10-16 16:50:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we will need to see the NDX breadth MCSUM not only move above its zero line
2012-10-16 16:50:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but with it
2012-10-16 16:50:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it will need to take out this same resistance we saw in the pattern on its prior attempt to do just that
2012-10-16 16:51:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the structure of the MCSUM also looks more of a "fishhook" than that of a "ledge"
2012-10-16 16:51:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we should know if it's a important turn or not by Friday
2012-10-16 16:51:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for some of you...
2012-10-16 16:52:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: sitting on your hands last week in trying to short this puppy turned out to be the best plan
2012-10-16 16:52:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: higher highs in the SPX breadth MCO
2012-10-16 16:53:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and I think it was this MCO where we talked about how neither side had much in the way of control of prices by the lack of texture we see in the MCO
2012-10-16 16:53:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: still the same scenario here as well
2012-10-16 16:53:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where we see a minimal amount of structure here
2012-10-16 16:54:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so it's unlikely that we're going to build too much more to make this move meaningful for the bulls
2012-10-16 16:54:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the SPX price chart
2012-10-16 16:55:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and it looks like we're only 10 points away from new recovery closing highs again
2012-10-16 16:55:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let me check
2012-10-16 16:55:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yep...10 points
2012-10-16 16:56:02 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: ?
2012-10-16 16:56:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we closed today at 1455
2012-10-16 16:56:19 [Message] sp 112358 -> Chat: Do you think we did finished an "a of B" today on spx?
2012-10-16 16:56:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the recent closing highs were 1465
2012-10-16 16:56:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: well...we're at a point in which something is going to give
2012-10-16 16:56:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but remember
2012-10-16 16:56:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it may not turn into a zig zag
2012-10-16 16:56:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it could be a flat
2012-10-16 16:56:55 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: ah, closing highs, forgot
2012-10-16 16:56:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and a test of the old highs with little in the way of structure on the daily
2012-10-16 16:57:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the key here though
2012-10-16 16:57:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is whether or not there's enough energy coming in so that prices can first test and then move above these same highs or not
2012-10-16 16:57:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so far...that answer is no
2012-10-16 16:57:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but another day like today
2012-10-16 16:58:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that would extend the mid October period for a high forecast to next week
2012-10-16 16:58:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but like we talked about earlier
2012-10-16 16:58:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we're probably not going to do much more for the rest of the week because of the option specs
2012-10-16 16:59:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: do you know that the Dow is 60 points away from new highs here?
2012-10-16 17:00:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: during anticipated topping phases
2012-10-16 17:00:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's highly important that our focus remains with money flow and NOT with prices
2012-10-16 17:00:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for as with every price top
2012-10-16 17:00:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's always done with lesser conviction by money
2012-10-16 17:01:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so if we move to new price highs here
2012-10-16 17:01:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so far
2012-10-16 17:01:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: there's still not enough short term money flow to keep prices moving in this same direction
2012-10-16 17:01:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this will cause divergence
2012-10-16 17:01:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then a more constructive bottom will need to be built in order for something like this to actually occur
2012-10-16 17:02:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OEX is 4 points away from new closing highs
2012-10-16 17:02:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so although last weeks two decline was exciting
2012-10-16 17:02:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: much of it has been absorbed now
2012-10-16 17:03:03 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we're net sideways for the last couple of weeks
2012-10-16 17:03:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now
2012-10-16 17:03:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: of course
2012-10-16 17:03:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the MID and SML and NASDAQ are telling a slightly different story
2012-10-16 17:03:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but isn't that how tradable tops actually form?
2012-10-16 17:03:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: without the broader market helping in keeping prices from declining?
2012-10-16 17:04:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so until this configuration changes
2012-10-16 17:04:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we should be comfortable with a top forming at this time
2012-10-16 17:04:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now
2012-10-16 17:04:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that brings up a more important question, doesn't it?
2012-10-16 17:04:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that would be
2012-10-16 17:04:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: how much downside is likely to be seen from this topping formation?
2012-10-16 17:04:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: well...so far...not much
2012-10-16 17:05:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: because we have the NYSE breadth MCSUM well above its zero line
2012-10-16 17:05:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but the NASDAQ is below this same line
2012-10-16 17:05:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so when the market is out of sync...what usually happens?
2012-10-16 17:05:40 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: chop
2012-10-16 17:05:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes, and that's the expectation
2012-10-16 17:06:13 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: fine with me
2012-10-16 17:06:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and it should be
2012-10-16 17:06:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this is why we switched to momentum oscillators last week
2012-10-16 17:06:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Japan opened up 1%...Korea up .07%
2012-10-16 17:07:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now...
2012-10-16 17:07:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: everyone will have their own time period working here
2012-10-16 17:07:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but here's what we should be looking at overall
2012-10-16 17:08:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let me upload a chart...one moment
2012-10-16 17:09:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: http://www.technicalwatch.com/chat12/nymo101612.png
2012-10-16 17:09:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the link should take you to the NYSE breadth MCO
2012-10-16 17:09:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with the full stochastic oscillator at the bottom
2012-10-16 17:09:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes?
2012-10-16 17:10:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: (hopefully)
2012-10-16 17:10:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anyway
2012-10-16 17:11:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: its unlikely that the MCO is going to turn down again until we see a reading above the 80 level in the stochastic
2012-10-16 17:11:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so if we use this daily information as a guide
2012-10-16 17:11:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it should compliment whichever directional trade you're likely to make
2012-10-16 17:12:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for example, you can use a 8 period RSI on a 15 minute chart
2012-10-16 17:12:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as it moves to and fro
2012-10-16 17:12:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we haven't reached the upper level in the MCO stochastic
2012-10-16 17:13:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one should take a position on the buy side when the small period RSI moves to "oversold"
2012-10-16 17:13:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and sell when it becomes "overbought"
2012-10-16 17:13:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: once the MCO stochastic tops
2012-10-16 17:13:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then you can move to the daily since we're likely be diverging by then
2012-10-16 17:13:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just a general primer
2012-10-16 17:13:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: use what works for you
2012-10-16 17:16:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: back to the charts
2012-10-16 17:16:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the OEX breadth MCO
2012-10-16 17:16:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and here we have another example of our being "out of sync"
2012-10-16 17:16:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with the SPX MCO moving to higher highs
2012-10-16 17:17:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: while the OEX has not
2012-10-16 17:17:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so we should continue to expect choppy behavior here
2012-10-16 17:17:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now if the buyers can capitalize on the crossover buy on the OEX components
2012-10-16 17:18:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then we have a slightly different tune to play with
2012-10-16 17:18:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we KNEW last week that all we were to expect was a technical bounce
2012-10-16 17:18:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yesterday was something like the "dead cat" variety
2012-10-16 17:18:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but today made it more than that
2012-10-16 17:19:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so maybe another day or two of firmness might be expected
2012-10-16 17:19:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that jives with our "going nowhere fast" idea for the rest of the week
2012-10-16 17:19:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: even the Dow breadth MCO was only able to snapback to its zero line
2012-10-16 17:20:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and notice again how we're attempting to find support at the +250 level on the Dow breadth MCSUM
2012-10-16 17:20:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the MID breadth MCO
2012-10-16 17:20:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and here we have higher highs
2012-10-16 17:20:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as we were talking about last week
2012-10-16 17:20:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the internals here have all the ingredients of a potential bottom here
2012-10-16 17:21:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with the rally from "oversold" finding zero line resistance
2012-10-16 17:21:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving lower and providing textural divergence
2012-10-16 17:21:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and now back above the zero line in what can be described as a "breadth thrust"
2012-10-16 17:22:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: notice too how this is all occurring at the MID breadth MCSUM zero line
2012-10-16 17:22:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so we should keep an eye on this basket of stocks here as to their potential for leadership
2012-10-16 17:23:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for if the bulls can continue to build on this constructive MCO pattern
2012-10-16 17:23:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then take out the reversal bar at 1005
2012-10-16 17:23:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this index could really move sharply higher from here
2012-10-16 17:23:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and into new all time high territory
2012-10-16 17:24:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the SML breadth MCO continues weaker than the MID
2012-10-16 17:24:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but here too we did take out the recent highs seen at the beginning of the month
2012-10-16 17:24:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so if the buyers can build on this
2012-10-16 17:24:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and take this MCO back above the zero line
2012-10-16 17:25:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this would then take us above the small blip resistance area we saw last month
2012-10-16 17:25:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and a challenge of the September highs will be likely...if not more
2012-10-16 17:25:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: tough market
2012-10-16 17:26:09 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: components not that fresh there, though
2012-10-16 17:26:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where you can't just watch one thing to know everything that's going on
2012-10-16 17:26:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: true...zero line snapback there
2012-10-16 17:26:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but they are moving in sync with the MCO itself
2012-10-16 17:26:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if they take the lead
2012-10-16 17:27:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that would be a bullish event
2012-10-16 17:27:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: like I said
2012-10-16 17:27:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's important that we look at everything here
2012-10-16 17:27:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and lucky for us
2012-10-16 17:27:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we have 3 straight days of chat this week to do just that!
2012-10-16 17:28:03 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: sure, just looking at the tops below tops situation-and the zero hit
2012-10-16 17:28:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where we'll be able to take this apart and see who's in control
2012-10-16 17:28:23 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: will be great!
2012-10-16 17:28:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but that's only part of the sequence here
2012-10-16 17:28:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with the MCO and its components moving together
2012-10-16 17:29:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it implies that there might be enough energy coming in now to break above these same tops
2012-10-16 17:29:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: again...it's a day to day thing here given how out of sync we are
2012-10-16 17:30:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but I don't know too many times where the market has had a significant top while the MID and SML continue to carry a firm undertone to them
2012-10-16 17:30:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's the important thing here
2012-10-16 17:30:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if we are topping as is the suggestion of the NYSE breadth MCSUM
2012-10-16 17:30:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then we should begin to show areas of breakdown moving into this same top
2012-10-16 17:30:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that, so far, isn't happening here
2012-10-16 17:31:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as expected
2012-10-16 17:32:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the TM breadth MCO is also back up to its zero line now
2012-10-16 17:32:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: right on it, in fact
2012-10-16 17:32:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so one side is about to take control
2012-10-16 17:32:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: place your bets
2012-10-16 17:32:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat:
2012-10-16 17:32:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the volume oscillators
2012-10-16 17:33:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: CVI's still not climactic
2012-10-16 17:33:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so there's room for some more emotional buying there
2012-10-16 17:33:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we'll call it neutral on the STVO's and VTO's
2012-10-16 17:33:44 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that means...
2012-10-16 17:33:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one side is about to take control
2012-10-16 17:33:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it also means
2012-10-16 17:33:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that in 2 trading days
2012-10-16 17:34:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we have returned to neutral...buyers and sellers are evened up
2012-10-16 17:34:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which also mean
2012-10-16 17:34:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: once again
2012-10-16 17:34:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the bears still have no sponsors
2012-10-16 17:34:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: try as they may
2012-10-16 17:34:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and this time taking Apple's decline as their point
2012-10-16 17:35:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: STILL they can't get enough traders to agree with them
2012-10-16 17:35:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: luckily though
2012-10-16 17:35:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: like we talked about last week
2012-10-16 17:35:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we can also say the same about the bulls
2012-10-16 17:35:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if both sides are indecisive...
2012-10-16 17:35:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we chop
2012-10-16 17:36:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: down 200 Dow points in 2-3 days
2012-10-16 17:36:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then up 200 Dow points in the same amount of time
2012-10-16 17:36:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: "tug of war"
2012-10-16 17:36:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and now the flag between the two sides is neutral
2012-10-16 17:36:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: who will take charge?

2012-10-16 17:37:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we should see the Open 10's get close to .80
2012-10-16 17:37:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so far...the plan is on point
2012-10-16 17:37:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: NASDAQ TRIN at .95
2012-10-16 17:37:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Open 10 at 1.06
2012-10-16 17:38:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and this might allow a larger advance to make up for the larger decline we saw last week
2012-10-16 17:38:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then wind up pretty much were the NYSE related indices are
2012-10-16 17:38:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: TM TRIN at 1.02
2012-10-16 17:38:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Open 10 at 1.07

2012-10-16 17:38:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if anything
2012-10-16 17:39:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the ball is in the bulls court for now
2012-10-16 17:39:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: any kind of early morning sell off is likely to be absorbed pretty quickly
2012-10-16 17:39:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we should see things stabilize during the day
2012-10-16 17:39:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for the bulls
2012-10-16 17:40:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: they have the MID, and to a lesser degree the SML, showing signs that last weeks bottom might be more than just a bounce
2012-10-16 17:40:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and hopefully we'll have a better handle on that before Thursday
2012-10-16 17:40:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for now...
2012-10-16 17:40:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if long...hold with trailing stops
2012-10-16 17:41:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if short...it's going to be a tough go here
2012-10-16 17:41:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if you're in cash...you have the best seat in the house
2012-10-16 17:41:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: patience...
2012-10-16 17:41:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anything else?
2012-10-16 17:42:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: another clue to watch for
2012-10-16 17:42:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is how prices perform at .50 and .618 retracement levels
2012-10-16 17:42:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: watch the internals as prices reach these levels
2012-10-16 17:43:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if they continue to improve, I would stand aside on shorts
2012-10-16 17:43:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as there's too many things here that are suggesting that this may not be a tradable top
2012-10-16 17:44:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: allow the market to share its whispers and go with that
2012-10-16 17:44:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK..."enjoy" the debate
2012-10-16 17:44:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we'll see how things look on Wednesday at the usual time
