2012-11-27 16:00:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: good day
2012-11-27 16:00:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: how is everyone?
2012-11-27 16:00:28 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: well, thx
2012-11-27 16:00:29 [Message] steveftw -> Chat: great - and you?
2012-11-27 16:00:44 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: doing fine as well
2012-11-27 16:01:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: still recovering from Thanksgiving :)
2012-11-27 16:02:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...any questions or comments before we get started??
2012-11-27 16:02:42 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: Are there internal reasons stopping us fronm being in an X wave up now?
2012-11-27 16:04:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: nope
2012-11-27 16:04:26 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: thx
2012-11-27 16:04:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: give me one more minute and we'll get started
2012-11-27 16:05:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: ok
2012-11-27 16:05:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when we last met
2012-11-27 16:05:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we were looking for a choppy to up week last week
2012-11-27 16:05:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with a down Black Friday
2012-11-27 16:05:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which we didn't get
2012-11-27 16:06:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but it does help us along in our expectation of a mid December bottom
2012-11-27 16:06:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but as we also know
2012-11-27 16:06:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the push on Friday was not only on low volume
2012-11-27 16:07:03 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which is always a caution sign
2012-11-27 16:07:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we never got any texture to the breadth MCO's that would indicate a tradable bottom
2012-11-27 16:07:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so we'll call it more of a ying and yang effect
2012-11-27 16:07:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where the market sold off hard after the election
2012-11-27 16:07:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then reflexed higher back to where we started prior to that
2012-11-27 16:08:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and now we can resume the effort in creating a bottom that will likely diverge with the 11/16 lows
2012-11-27 16:08:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...let me get DP up and we'll get started
2012-11-27 16:09:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: after moving to minimally "overbought" territory last Friday
2012-11-27 16:09:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the CO NYSE breadth MCO continued to give back some of those gains of last week
2012-11-27 16:09:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but remains well above its zero line at this time
2012-11-27 16:09:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with a reading of +31
2012-11-27 16:10:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the components
2012-11-27 16:10:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we see that last Friday's final push to "overbought" levels provided a crossover buy signal
2012-11-27 16:10:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and with the market pulling back only slightly so far
2012-11-27 16:11:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we seem to be in the process of creating an important bottom in which we will rally OUT OF instead of moving DOWN INTO this same bottom
2012-11-27 16:11:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the CO NYSE breadth MCSUM
2012-11-27 16:11:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we see that we have now completed a minimal snapback up to the -250 level
2012-11-27 16:11:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: after finding support at just above the -500 level
2012-11-27 16:12:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: given the scope and breadth of last weeks reflex rally
2012-11-27 16:12:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: a pause could now be indicated here as we find natural resistance at the next 250 multiple
2012-11-27 16:12:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this would then suggest that this MCO will continue to snapback to its zero line
2012-11-27 16:13:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and this, of course, would halt the upside progression of the MCSUM at around this same -250 level
2012-11-27 16:13:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: on the positive side
2012-11-27 16:14:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the CO NYSE breadth MCSUM did break above its declining tops line today
2012-11-27 16:14:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and with bearish sentiment about as thick as I've seen it in a while
2012-11-27 16:14:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we might be in store for another upside surprise before we actually do the work necessary to provide a tradable low in prices
2012-11-27 16:15:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the composite data
2012-11-27 16:15:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we see that the NYSE composite MCO and its components generated a buy signal on Friday
2012-11-27 16:15:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and both continue to remain in a positive configuration for the time being
2012-11-27 16:15:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the NYSE breadth MCSUM
2012-11-27 16:16:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and here we are now back up to the zero line
2012-11-27 16:16:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with a reading of -1
2012-11-27 16:16:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: snapback complete?
2012-11-27 16:16:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or will the bulls take control of the action where both sides are now evened up?
2012-11-27 16:17:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: putting ruler to monitor here
2012-11-27 16:17:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we see that this MCSUM can move back up to around the +200 level and still not violate its declining tops line
2012-11-27 16:17:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so we can not rule out some continuation of this current flow of money moving into the market
2012-11-27 16:18:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and still remain rather negative overall
2012-11-27 16:18:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the close up of the NYA price pattern
2012-11-27 16:18:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as we talked about last week
2012-11-27 16:19:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's very likely here that an important bottom is now behind us given the high degree of negative sentiment
2012-11-27 16:19:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: along with the highly "oversold" reading on the MCO
2012-11-27 16:19:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which also included a beautiful hammer stick
2012-11-27 16:20:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: a break-a-way gap
2012-11-27 16:20:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and a extension gap to top it off
2012-11-27 16:20:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: internally though
2012-11-27 16:20:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we still as yet have very little structure where prices can build on what looks to be an "initiation" phase
2012-11-27 16:20:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so the expectation for now
2012-11-27 16:21:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as suggested over the weekend
2012-11-27 16:21:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is for a choppy trading range to develop that would bottom in or around mid December
2012-11-27 16:21:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which would frustrate both bull and bear
2012-11-27 16:21:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just like we had last December
2012-11-27 16:21:49 [Message] hkk -> Chat: are we expecting the mid dec low to be a lower low or can it be a higher low?
2012-11-27 16:21:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: at this point
2012-11-27 16:22:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: since it's a trading range
2012-11-27 16:22:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: e.g. - the MCO above its zero line, the MCSUM below its zero line
2012-11-27 16:22:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the expectation now is for a low in which we move OUT OF (higher price than the original low) and not one in which we move down INTO (lower prices)
2012-11-27 16:23:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: what's become fascinating here
2012-11-27 16:23:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is that if you check sentiment right now
2012-11-27 16:23:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's as bearish as I've seen in a while
2012-11-27 16:23:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and so far
2012-11-27 16:23:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: nothing has happened to justify it...technically
2012-11-27 16:24:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so if the majority is thinking lower prices
2012-11-27 16:24:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: will the market accommodate the many?
2012-11-27 16:24:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: maybe...eventually
2012-11-27 16:24:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but probably not right away
2012-11-27 16:24:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if does so...let's say tomorrow
2012-11-27 16:24:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we lose, for the sake of argument, 1%
2012-11-27 16:24:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: what would happen if we gain it all back on Thursday?
2012-11-27 16:25:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the problem now is this
2012-11-27 16:25:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with Friday's break above the MCO resistance tops we pointed to last week
2012-11-27 16:25:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the downside has been pretty much been cratered out
2012-11-27 16:25:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and since the short term trend of money, as measured by the MCO is positive
2012-11-27 16:26:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but the intermediate term trend of money, as measured by the MCSUM, is negative
2012-11-27 16:26:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we chop
2012-11-27 16:26:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: there is no trend
2012-11-27 16:26:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: neither higher or lower
2012-11-27 16:26:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and since we are then in an indecision pattern
2012-11-27 16:26:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we KNOW that sentiment is going to go from one extreme to the other at the drop of a hat
2012-11-27 16:27:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and once both sides have been chewed up and spit out
2012-11-27 16:27:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: then a trend can be created
2012-11-27 16:27:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so don't expect too much to the downside here
2012-11-27 16:27:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: expect a lot of frustration
2012-11-27 16:27:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and anger to go along with it
2012-11-27 16:28:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: keep in mind
2012-11-27 16:28:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as we know from history
2012-11-27 16:28:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the MCO tends to stay either above or below its zero line for periods of not more than 4-6 weeks at a time
2012-11-27 16:28:42 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: without lower prices, how do you get a divergent bottom?
2012-11-27 16:29:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we also know that we don't tend to have more than one fishhook and one ledge in any one downward sequence
2012-11-27 16:29:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and now
2012-11-27 16:29:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the MCSUM's have bottomed
2012-11-27 16:29:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you get a divergent bottom when prices are slammed lower
2012-11-27 16:29:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but with less and less momentum behind it
2012-11-27 16:29:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we have seen this many times before
2012-11-27 16:29:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's part and parcel of a trading range
2012-11-27 16:30:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where each test of the lower end of the range is divergent from the one before it
2012-11-27 16:31:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the key to divergence is that it provides the insight where one can measure the amplitude of how many buyers or sellers are supporting a price move in one direction or the other
2012-11-27 16:31:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with so many folks so darn sure that we're going to cave in here with the Fiscal Cliff...Europe...the Middle East...etc etc
2012-11-27 16:31:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if the players who want to sell are reduced each time this "fear" is given
2012-11-27 16:32:03 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: well..
2012-11-27 16:32:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: look back at the 2010 and 2011 bottoms
2012-11-27 16:32:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: both of which had us giving no chance of a recovery
2012-11-27 16:32:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but each move lower provided less and less sellers
2012-11-27 16:32:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: to eventually you have no one really selling
2012-11-27 16:33:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and the buyers step in and hold the market up until enough traders give up on their bias
2012-11-27 16:33:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but let's forget all that for a moment
2012-11-27 16:33:39 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: just saying, I'm usually calling something divergent when prices are lower-with higher indicators...
2012-11-27 16:33:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: on a technical basis
2012-11-27 16:33:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when you have the MCO and MCSUM not agreeing
2012-11-27 16:34:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or when you have one time period trend not agreeing with the other
2012-11-27 16:34:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: prices are only likely to churn until a decision is made where both time periods are in agreement
2012-11-27 16:34:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and where...a trend can be created
2012-11-27 16:34:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that is a good visual
2012-11-27 16:34:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let me give you an example
2012-11-27 16:35:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: can't find one on the yearly...let me switch to the 3 year
2012-11-27 16:36:05 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: like the 2010 and 2011 bottoms, both divergent price to indicator-why am I looking for it to be different this time?
2012-11-27 16:36:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...spring of 2011
2012-11-27 16:36:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you see the trading range top?
2012-11-27 16:36:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: on the NYA?
2012-11-27 16:37:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where we had a low in February
2012-11-27 16:37:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then a test of this low in July?
2012-11-27 16:37:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now...you had your divergence there
2012-11-27 16:37:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but in that case
2012-11-27 16:37:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it led to a SOB and a crash
2012-11-27 16:38:08 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: yes
2012-11-27 16:38:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the problem here is that there is so much liquidity in the system here
2012-11-27 16:38:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that it becomes difficult to see textbook divergences
2012-11-27 16:38:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now...
2012-11-27 16:38:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we might still have a classic one
2012-11-27 16:38:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but the odds of this happening now are much lower than they were prior to Friday's pop
2012-11-27 16:39:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and on the flip side
2012-11-27 16:39:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if we do move to new price lows
2012-11-27 16:39:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and take out the tail of the hammer stick
2012-11-27 16:39:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it will do so only with a large increase of momentum for this to happen
2012-11-27 16:39:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but the focus here is with the tools we use here
2012-11-27 16:39:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and right now
2012-11-27 16:40:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: they say to expect chop
2012-11-27 16:40:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: not a new low
2012-11-27 16:40:18 [Message] hkk -> Chat: so when the MCO broke out on Friday, all downside price objectives were canceled?
2012-11-27 16:40:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes (with some already meeting those same targets)
2012-11-27 16:40:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: remember
2012-11-27 16:40:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we pointed to the previous highs in the MCO as being important in keeping the pressure on the bulls
2012-11-27 16:41:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we broke above THREE tops
2012-11-27 16:41:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that is a significant event
2012-11-27 16:41:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: not only wasn't it expected
2012-11-27 16:41:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: given the downside pressure of the previous week
2012-11-27 16:42:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but since we had already had a technical breakdown 2 weeks before
2012-11-27 16:42:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when we took out the rising bottoms structures on the MCO's
2012-11-27 16:42:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we then moved to highly "oversold"
2012-11-27 16:42:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the expectation of such an event is NOT to go screaming north to "overbought" levels
2012-11-27 16:42:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the expectation is for just a snapback to the zero line
2012-11-27 16:43:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: maybe above it slightly
2012-11-27 16:43:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but not to take out these same tops
2012-11-27 16:43:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we did
2012-11-27 16:43:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this was like moving up to a brick wall
2012-11-27 16:43:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and finding enough energy to break through it
2012-11-27 16:43:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and this then needs to be respected for what it may suggest
2012-11-27 16:44:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that the sellers have once again lost control
2012-11-27 16:44:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: even in the face of some very bearish fundamentals
2012-11-27 16:44:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as we have seen time and time again over the last couple of years
2012-11-27 16:44:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if they don't keep the pressure on
2012-11-27 16:44:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: there's just too much capital out there to move back in from shore
2012-11-27 16:44:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now...
2012-11-27 16:44:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: granted
2012-11-27 16:45:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: much of this was short covering
2012-11-27 16:45:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but what the last two weeks of action provided
2012-11-27 16:45:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: was sort of like a tsunami effect
2012-11-27 16:45:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where a large amount of capital moved out
2012-11-27 16:45:31 [Message] hkk -> Chat: so when all is said and done, we should now be at least expecting to test of the previous price highs?
2012-11-27 16:45:38 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: the lack of texture bothers me here, as does the non break, so far of the zero line and 250 on the relative summations-basically only a simple snapback, so far. we are also now at an almost perfect back test of the breakdown - I hear what you are saying, and appreciate your knowledge-but this looks like an iffy spot
2012-11-27 16:45:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and it moved back in just as quickly as it left
2012-11-27 16:46:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: eventually...we should test the price highs
2012-11-27 16:46:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that has NEVER been in doubt
2012-11-27 16:46:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's because of what we see with the interest rate sensitive A/D lines
2012-11-27 16:46:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which PROMISE us higher equity prices some time down the line
2012-11-27 16:47:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: again...I don't use the word "promise" very lightly here
2012-11-27 16:47:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: I agree Lew
2012-11-27 16:47:33 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: agreed, fully-just a question of "from where"
2012-11-27 16:47:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that's a great question
2012-11-27 16:47:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but let's consider
2012-11-27 16:47:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that on Fibonacci basis
2012-11-27 16:48:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we have retraced anywhere from .382 to .618 of the rally from last June
2012-11-27 16:48:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we have seen the MCSUM's move lower for a longer period of time that is usual and customary
2012-11-27 16:48:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so our expectation of a trading range
2012-11-27 16:48:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: given that we have the MCO above the zero line and the MCSUM below its zero line
2012-11-27 16:49:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: makes the best sense as we move to back and fill the hole created by last weeks reflex rally
2012-11-27 16:49:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: tell me this
2012-11-27 16:49:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: who isn't bearish here...show of hands??
2012-11-27 16:50:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let's stop for one moment
2012-11-27 16:50:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and I would like everyone to scan the TT board for a moment
2012-11-27 16:50:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: tell me what you see as far as the subject lines are concerned
2012-11-27 16:50:21 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: I'll go either way, there are individual stocks I love-leaning bullish-but VERY cautious right here
2012-11-27 16:50:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just look at the topics
2012-11-27 16:50:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: while you do that
2012-11-27 16:50:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: consider this
2012-11-27 16:51:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: after moving from highly "oversold" to minimally "overbought" in a matter of 3 1/2 trading days
2012-11-27 16:51:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the MCO (so far that we've looked) has only retraced a small fraction of this move
2012-11-27 16:51:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if there was to be another flush
2012-11-27 16:51:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we would had been at the zero line today
2012-11-27 16:52:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we're holding here
2012-11-27 16:52:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in spite of...
2012-11-27 16:52:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: France being downgraded on debt last week
2012-11-27 16:52:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then we had...who was it? Hungary on Friday?
2012-11-27 16:52:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Greece passed their bail out
2012-11-27 16:52:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but no one knows how they're going to do it
2012-11-27 16:53:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we are being told that the whole of Europe is going into a double dip recession
2012-11-27 16:53:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and still the FTSE A/D line closed just below its all time highs on Friday!
2012-11-27 16:53:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is the next couple of weeks going to be tough
2012-11-27 16:53:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes
2012-11-27 16:54:03 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: no debate
2012-11-27 16:54:08 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: for me, right here, as well-on the SPX we just retraced almost exactly 50% of the last drop
2012-11-27 16:54:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...
2012-11-27 16:54:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and as we have been told by everyone and their grandmother...it's now time to resume lower
2012-11-27 16:55:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: technically though
2012-11-27 16:55:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's not quite doable
2012-11-27 16:55:09 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: maybe not, but we certainly need a lot better foundation here
2012-11-27 16:55:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: oh yea
2012-11-27 16:55:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we will
2012-11-27 16:55:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if this sentiment continues to get even more bearish
2012-11-27 16:55:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the upside, once this lack of clarity passes, is going to be quite impressive
2012-11-27 16:55:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: could change tomorrow
2012-11-27 16:56:08 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: your anticipation of chop would provide fine texture-I can see it
2012-11-27 16:56:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we can only go by what we see
2012-11-27 16:56:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes
2012-11-27 16:56:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and it would frustrate everyone
2012-11-27 16:56:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and the option specs would again expire worthless in December
2012-11-27 16:56:47 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: I suppose that would be exactly what we want, so, OK, LOL
2012-11-27 16:57:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now...we have only looked at the NYSE ...let's see how the other charts look :)
2012-11-27 16:57:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the bottom line here is that
2012-11-27 16:57:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: until the MCO moves back below its zero line
2012-11-27 16:57:27 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: thx for the great explanation-I'm still learning from you!
2012-11-27 16:57:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the expectation of being able to move to lower price lows is less than 50%
2012-11-27 16:57:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the market is a great teacher
2012-11-27 16:57:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: I am but a student
2012-11-27 16:58:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as we all are
2012-11-27 16:58:01 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: you are cheaper
2012-11-27 16:58:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's very important though in not to get caught up in trades that seem easy
2012-11-27 16:58:24 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: market lessons can be costly
2012-11-27 16:58:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: 40 years of them for me
2012-11-27 16:58:45 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: 37 here, as well
2012-11-27 16:58:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so if you are bearish here
2012-11-27 16:59:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: all the market asks is to take a step back
2012-11-27 16:59:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and re-examine
2012-11-27 16:59:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and don't fall into a trap
2012-11-27 16:59:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: believe me
2012-11-27 16:59:38 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: to be honest, I'm focusing on stalking individual bullish charts for long plays here-but kind of trading less and vulturing more
2012-11-27 16:59:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if the indicators said otherwise, I would share it
2012-11-27 16:59:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but you see what I see...so far
2012-11-27 16:59:58 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: absolutely
2012-11-27 17:00:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's the way this market has been
2012-11-27 17:00:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it hasn't been a stock market
2012-11-27 17:00:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's been a market of stocks
2012-11-27 17:00:16 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: or I'd stalk shorts....
2012-11-27 17:00:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: has been for the better part of the year
2012-11-27 17:00:44 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: prediction
2012-11-27 17:00:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: ready?
2012-11-27 17:00:53 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: yep
2012-11-27 17:01:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when we hear Bob Prechter being interviewed...that will be our bottom
2012-11-27 17:01:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: no disrespect to Bob
2012-11-27 17:01:40 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: and, to be fair, I still like the mid December time frame here
2012-11-27 17:01:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but the press always goes to him when all looks lost
2012-11-27 17:02:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's the key
2012-11-27 17:02:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: last Friday's break above resistance increased the odds of a mid December low
2012-11-27 17:02:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let's move on to the other charts and see if they're in agreement or not
2012-11-27 17:03:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...now here's another good example
2012-11-27 17:03:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the NASDAQ breadth MCO finally moved lower today the first time since the 11/16 lows
2012-11-27 17:03:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in fact
2012-11-27 17:03:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the NASDAQ was up the majority of the day today
2012-11-27 17:03:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and what we usually see when a uptrend is in the beginning stages of being created
2012-11-27 17:04:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we see the secondaries firm first before the those issues traded on the NYSE
2012-11-27 17:04:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: now...looking at the price pattern
2012-11-27 17:04:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: remember what our upside objective for the bounce was last Monday?
2012-11-27 17:04:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes...the early November consolidation
2012-11-27 17:04:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we reached that today
2012-11-27 17:05:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so this pattern sequence is now complete
2012-11-27 17:05:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking still at the price chart
2012-11-27 17:05:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we had a small reversal bar today
2012-11-27 17:05:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: a small sign of exhaustion
2012-11-27 17:05:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so between reaching a target
2012-11-27 17:05:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and seeing the index moving to higher highs and closing near the lows
2012-11-27 17:06:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: along with a MCO reading at +34
2012-11-27 17:06:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we should expect some additional movement to or towards the zero line near term
2012-11-27 17:06:42 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: bit of gap resistance here as well, no?
2012-11-27 17:07:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looks like were there...let me check the combo chart
2012-11-27 17:07:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we're filling it now
2012-11-27 17:08:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we broke above the accelerated declining tops line on the NASDAQ breadth MCSUM on Monday
2012-11-27 17:08:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so the next target there is the -250 level
2012-11-27 17:08:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where we have natural resistance
2012-11-27 17:08:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: AND
2012-11-27 17:08:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where the declining tops line that is controlling the pattern crosses
2012-11-27 17:09:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: looking at the components here
2012-11-27 17:09:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we see that the 10% is above its zero line
2012-11-27 17:09:30 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and the 5% remains below
2012-11-27 17:09:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so even here...we should see choppy behavior as well
2012-11-27 17:09:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: doesn't mean we won't move down 30 points
2012-11-27 17:10:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but until both the MCO and MCSUM get in gear here either above or below their zero lines
2012-11-27 17:10:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we're not going to trend
2012-11-27 17:10:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if we don't trend
2012-11-27 17:10:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we don't make lower lows or higher highs
2012-11-27 17:10:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: again...we have a hammer stick on the NASDAQ
2012-11-27 17:11:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with a break-a-way gap to the upside
2012-11-27 17:11:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so even if the bears are right here
2012-11-27 17:11:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: they are going to have break down the market again with such strength that it would break both of these time and tested reversal indicators
2012-11-27 17:11:53 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: since the 5% never made it, would you consider it, strictly technically, still corrective?
2012-11-27 17:11:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes
2012-11-27 17:11:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: corrective
2012-11-27 17:12:03 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: thx
2012-11-27 17:12:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and corrective means...?
2012-11-27 17:12:20 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: we can not yet trend up
2012-11-27 17:12:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: nor down
2012-11-27 17:12:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we then...?
2012-11-27 17:12:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: chop
2012-11-27 17:12:47 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: yep
2012-11-27 17:13:17 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: good, you know me, I NEED the texture, LOL
2012-11-27 17:14:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: yes...so does the market
2012-11-27 17:14:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: again
2012-11-27 17:14:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: there is plenty of work to do for the bulls here
2012-11-27 17:14:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this is not the argument
2012-11-27 17:14:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: what is the argument though
2012-11-27 17:14:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is that
2012-11-27 17:15:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: prices can not move forward or backward unless the flow of money shows leadership in that direction
2012-11-27 17:15:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for now
2012-11-27 17:15:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so far
2012-11-27 17:15:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: there been enough money that has come in to stabilize prices from moving lower
2012-11-27 17:15:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but there hasn't been enough for prices to move to new highs as well
2012-11-27 17:16:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so for those who are looking for a "crash" here
2012-11-27 17:16:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: forget it
2012-11-27 17:16:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and for those who might be looking for a melt up
2012-11-27 17:16:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: forget it
2012-11-27 17:16:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we are in an indecision mode now
2012-11-27 17:16:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: all of the bad news is out
2012-11-27 17:17:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just a matter now of constructing a low to where prices can rally again
2012-11-27 17:17:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let's again make it very clear here
2012-11-27 17:17:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when the MCO's broke their bottoms above bottoms structures earlier this month
2012-11-27 17:17:44 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this was a "technical breakdown"
2012-11-27 17:17:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when you have technical breakdowns
2012-11-27 17:18:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: prices have the ability to collapse as those who were betting on a bottom suddenly withdraw their trades
2012-11-27 17:18:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and for the bears
2012-11-27 17:18:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this all happened when many of the MCSUM's were moving down and through their zero lines
2012-11-27 17:19:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where the majority move from one side of the trade to the other
2012-11-27 17:19:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as we also discussed
2012-11-27 17:19:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: a lack of liquidity never had anything to do with the November decline
2012-11-27 17:19:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and when you have high liquidity levels as we do right now
2012-11-27 17:20:07 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: unless you're able to continue to keep the beach ball below the water line
2012-11-27 17:20:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if you release it
2012-11-27 17:20:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: whoosh...the ball moves back above the water line with a great amount of energy
2012-11-27 17:20:27 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: I see the difference in context better, thx
2012-11-27 17:20:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's what happened last week
2012-11-27 17:20:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and now
2012-11-27 17:20:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the ball is floating on top of the pool
2012-11-27 17:20:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to and fro as the wind allows it (the NYSE breadth MCSUM zero line)
2012-11-27 17:21:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and when the bears again have the strength to push the ball back under the water line again
2012-11-27 17:21:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it will likely not be as deep as the first time
2012-11-27 17:21:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and there's your divergence
2012-11-27 17:21:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: remember also
2012-11-27 17:22:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that the downside target for the NASDAQ and NDX were met last week?
2012-11-27 17:22:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we discussed this
2012-11-27 17:22:25 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: yes
2012-11-27 17:22:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as one of the many reasons why we were going to have a reflex rally
2012-11-27 17:22:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so....
2012-11-27 17:23:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: go back to the NYA price chart again
2012-11-27 17:23:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and remember that our downside target was initially the August consolidation lows
2012-11-27 17:23:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we cut right through them as we made our -92 reading on the MCO
2012-11-27 17:24:02 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but what happened after that?
2012-11-27 17:24:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: not only did we rally back above this same support level
2012-11-27 17:24:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we GAPED back above it
2012-11-27 17:24:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: again...someone let go of the beach ball :)
2012-11-27 17:25:11 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: I noticed how quickly we drove through a lot of the gap resistance-mentioned it in my room, thought it significant
2012-11-27 17:25:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and you know it to be
2012-11-27 17:25:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in spite of what the media is telling you
2012-11-27 17:25:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: again...
2012-11-27 17:26:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Friday was a significant event for the bulls
2012-11-27 17:26:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and for the longer term trend
2012-11-27 17:26:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: which remains intact
2012-11-27 17:26:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and until the bears can come up with top beneath a top
2012-11-27 17:26:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: any talk of a "THE" top are very much a guess (hope) if anything else
2012-11-27 17:27:10 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: well, the U/D was very telling...historically, since 2009 anyway
2012-11-27 17:27:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: let me get through the rest of the breadth charts...I want to see how the volume McClellan's look
2012-11-27 17:27:40 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: it said bottom
2012-11-27 17:28:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: moving to the NDX breadth MCO
2012-11-27 17:28:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and see how it moved to its highest level since the beginning of July?
2012-11-27 17:28:46 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this would indicate that have a bottom in the NDX breadth MCSUM
2012-11-27 17:29:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that the current "ledge" resistance we see here
2012-11-27 17:29:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is likely to be crushed sooner than later
2012-11-27 17:29:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as soon as tomorrow
2012-11-27 17:29:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's important to take anything you hear as being something to promote a reaction
2012-11-27 17:29:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: look at today
2012-11-27 17:30:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the market was pretty much at unchanged until (I think) Senator Reid came out and said that "they are far apart on a cure for the Fiscal Cliff"
2012-11-27 17:30:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and BAM!
2012-11-27 17:30:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the Dow lows 70 points
2012-11-27 17:30:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: rallied a bit
2012-11-27 17:31:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and then closed at its lows
2012-11-27 17:31:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and when you listen to the NEWS tonight
2012-11-27 17:31:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that statement will be used to justify today's close
2012-11-27 17:31:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but internally
2012-11-27 17:31:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we continue to improve
2012-11-27 17:31:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: no...we're not quite there to where a rally can take place
2012-11-27 17:32:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but we are there to where any further downside has been taken off the table....for now
2012-11-27 17:32:22 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: these announcements are timed
2012-11-27 17:32:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: make no mistake
2012-11-27 17:32:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in this sense...the market is rigged
2012-11-27 17:33:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's ability to promote a reaction is the very KEY to merchandising stock
2012-11-27 17:33:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if traders are selling
2012-11-27 17:33:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and there's no one to buy
2012-11-27 17:33:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's up to the market makers to off set the trade with their own accounts
2012-11-27 17:33:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if they do that
2012-11-27 17:33:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and they can "control" prices
2012-11-27 17:34:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: "it's not people selling that make prices move lower
2012-11-27 17:34:18 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's prices moving lower that make people sell"
2012-11-27 17:34:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or load up on puts
2012-11-27 17:34:35 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or calls as the case might be
2012-11-27 17:34:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: discipline
2012-11-27 17:34:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and respecting your indicators
2012-11-27 17:35:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: is the only way you can sidestep these merchandising techniques
2012-11-27 17:35:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anyway...let's move on
2012-11-27 17:35:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the SPX breadth MCO also tested it summer highs
2012-11-27 17:35:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and looking at the components
2012-11-27 17:35:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: notice that both have now snapped back to or toward their zero line
2012-11-27 17:35:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so...
2012-11-27 17:36:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: technically
2012-11-27 17:36:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: what should we expect near term with this technical condition?
2012-11-27 17:36:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: that's right...we should bounce
2012-11-27 17:36:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so don't be surprised if we're up tomorrow
2012-11-27 17:36:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the end of the week?
2012-11-27 17:36:55 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: won't know until tomorrow :)
2012-11-27 17:37:03 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but short term
2012-11-27 17:37:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we are now likely in a trading range
2012-11-27 17:37:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's the important thing
2012-11-27 17:37:19 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: because
2012-11-27 17:37:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if you're in a trading range
2012-11-27 17:37:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this is where your momentum oscillators do their best magic
2012-11-27 17:38:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as oscillators have little merit during trending sequences
2012-11-27 17:38:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: same situation with the OEX breadth MCO and its components
2012-11-27 17:38:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: oh my
2012-11-27 17:38:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: even the Dow breadth MCO challenged its 52 week highs last week
2012-11-27 17:39:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but remains below its declining tops line on the Dow breadth MCSUM
2012-11-27 17:39:31 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so one side says "go"
2012-11-27 17:39:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and the other says "slow"
2012-11-27 17:39:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: between the two...you chop
2012-11-27 17:39:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with the only real question...
2012-11-27 17:40:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: how wide the price range are we to expect?
2012-11-27 17:40:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and THAT we don't quite know as yet
2012-11-27 17:40:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: all we know is that it's unlikely that we're going to take out the 11/16 price lows anytime soon
2012-11-27 17:40:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or until there is enough texture moving lower in the MCO where price CAN actually do this
2012-11-27 17:40:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: texture is everything here
2012-11-27 17:41:06 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: for both sides
2012-11-27 17:41:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: without it...no one has control
2012-11-27 17:41:17 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and with that
2012-11-27 17:41:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we get whipsawed
2012-11-27 17:41:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if I remember correctly
2012-11-27 17:42:00 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: didn't we have confirmed bull divergence in place with the MID breadth MCO last week?
2012-11-27 17:42:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so...bull divergence in place now
2012-11-27 17:42:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but it doesn't mean we can't chop with the rest of the market
2012-11-27 17:42:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but what it does suggest is that it's going be difficult for the bears to muster up any downside momentum for a while
2012-11-27 17:42:58 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that's important information
2012-11-27 17:43:14 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: of which you won't hear in the media
2012-11-27 17:43:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or CNBC
2012-11-27 17:43:23 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: or even a message board
2012-11-27 17:43:29 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's the market talking

2012-11-27 17:44:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: while everyone is looking and thinking one way
2012-11-27 17:44:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the market is doing something else
2012-11-27 17:44:40 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: could change
2012-11-27 17:44:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but for now...this is what we see
2012-11-27 17:44:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you see it
2012-11-27 17:44:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: I see it
2012-11-27 17:45:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: you technical expertise sees it
2012-11-27 17:45:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anybody ever come across a bottom when the news was good?
2012-11-27 17:45:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: show of hands, please
2012-11-27 17:45:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: not one

2012-11-27 17:46:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it is a turn in the directional trend!
2012-11-27 17:46:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so internally
2012-11-27 17:47:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the trend is showing that money is moving into the market
2012-11-27 17:47:10 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and doing so for the first time in....
2012-11-27 17:47:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: since mid September

2012-11-27 17:47:43 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: meanwhile
2012-11-27 17:47:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we're being told that the market is about to collapse
2012-11-27 17:47:59 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: how can this be?
2012-11-27 17:48:09 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: if money is moving in
2012-11-27 17:48:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and not out?
2012-11-27 17:48:41 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and look at the separation of the MCSUM postings
2012-11-27 17:48:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's not a little bit of money
2012-11-27 17:48:53 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it's a whole lot of money
2012-11-27 17:49:16 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as money sees something over the horizon that most either can't...

2012-11-27 17:49:33 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this is how you make money in the markets
2012-11-27 17:49:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: when the majority is looking the other way
2012-11-27 17:49:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and why we do our homework...right Lew?
2012-11-27 17:50:04 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: yes sir!
2012-11-27 17:50:25 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and the TM breadth MCO remains well above its zero line
2012-11-27 17:50:37 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: with a current reading of +29
2012-11-27 17:50:48 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so a zero line snapback wouldn't be out of the question there either
2012-11-27 17:50:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: although
2012-11-27 17:51:01 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the components here have snapped back to their zero lines now
2012-11-27 17:51:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so maybe after tomorrow we'll see if that happens or not
2012-11-27 17:51:15 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: in the meantime
2012-11-27 17:51:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the market appears to be constructing a new bottom
2012-11-27 17:51:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one in which the price lows may have already been seen for this corrective process
2012-11-27 17:52:22 [Message] thespookyone -> Chat: check out the postings on the NDX volume summations-Oh my!

2012-11-27 17:52:52 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but needless to say...we have both volume and breadth moving in sync with each other on this bounce
2012-11-27 17:52:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and if you are bearish
2012-11-27 17:53:08 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: just one look at the volume MCO's should give you something to consider
2012-11-27 17:53:28 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and, yes, the NDX volume MCSUM is leading breadth to the upside
2012-11-27 17:53:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: remember...Apple looked like it bottomed 2 weeks ago?

2012-11-27 17:55:21 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: where we open sharply lower and improve the rest of the day

2012-11-27 17:58:47 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we're probably going to need to get all the Open 10's back below 1.10 for our tradable bottom
2012-11-27 17:59:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so the best blueprint for now is to continue to look for a choppy market place
2012-11-27 17:59:32 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as both sides wrestle with each other as to whose opinion is the correct one
2012-11-27 17:59:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: on the surface
2012-11-27 17:59:50 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: many are looking at this as a downtrend of some kind
2012-11-27 17:59:54 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but internally
2012-11-27 17:59:57 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: this is not the case
2012-11-27 18:00:11 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as all of the MCSUM's are now rising by benefit of their MCO's
2012-11-27 18:00:27 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: so those who are short...it's time to be diligent on your stops
2012-11-27 18:00:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as the path of least resistance for money is up
2012-11-27 18:00:49 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and at this point...
2012-11-27 18:01:05 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: we're still looking on target for a mid December low
2012-11-27 18:01:26 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: the only question being...from what price level where this low will be created
2012-11-27 18:01:34 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we should have a good feel for that as soon as next week
2012-11-27 18:01:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: anything else?
2012-11-27 18:03:04 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Dow futures down 16
2012-11-27 18:03:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: not much follow through to a sloppy looking close, don't you think?
2012-11-27 18:03:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: btw
2012-11-27 18:03:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: one comment on Black Friday
2012-11-27 18:04:13 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: it was my expectation that brick and mortar would be poor
2012-11-27 18:04:20 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and that internet buying would be brisk
2012-11-27 18:04:24 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: as it turned out
2012-11-27 18:04:36 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: Friday was the best retail has seen in several years
2012-11-27 18:04:38 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: however
2012-11-27 18:04:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: sales are nice
2012-11-27 18:05:12 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: but if you don't have any mark up, or sell items at cost, is it really as good as the press has us believe?
2012-11-27 18:05:39 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: something to think about
2012-11-27 18:05:42 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: OK...with that
2012-11-27 18:05:45 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: I'm going to take off
2012-11-27 18:05:51 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: everyone have a great couple of days
2012-11-27 18:05:56 [Message] fib_1618 -> Chat: and we'll meet up again on Thursday
