    Here is a chart of Price is testing $21.76 ‘area’ again. Not good to continue to test the same support as investors who bought there each time have seen the next rally fail each time and question the point of buying again. A break here would suggest a test of the uptrendline at $19. Price though is outperforming consistently for whatever that’s worth. seems to be in free fall with no visible support until just under $14. Not impressed with either actually. Buying might be like catching a falling piano.

    Seasonal trend charts show a more bullish trend from mid October onward.

    Thanks Ron, much appreciated! Might be best to stay away.
    I remember when AC was around $2 a pop.

    Ana, thanks for your response last night. If your disagreement with some of the “very bullish views” on this site is what is keeping you away, I can understand that. But not everyone is bullish. Ron/BC is one of the least bullish and everyone is always asking him for his opinion on this or that stock. And he very patiently accommodates them.

    I am trying really hard to tune out the media noise and everyone’s opinions. And therefore, not have a bias one way or the other – just look at the charts…

    Of course, bullish or bearish views depend on your timeframe. Keith Richards with his “bear-o-meter” and Don Vialoux have been fairly bearish for a couple of months, with the latter’s “caveat emptor” and U. S. mid term elections seasonal chart…but the U.S. market has kept going up, defying all reason. So there really is no point trying to find reasons for why the market does what it does.

    I am holding a fair amount of cash, waiting for opportunities, trying to be patient. I have missed out on the recent run up for the most part. I did buy some ECA.TO recently, so happy with that.

    I hope your trading is going well.

    Just a reminder on Armstrong’s numbers. He is saying that the monthly numbers are the trend, everything else is just noise. If we break the weekly bearish numbers on Friday and close BELOW them, 24386 and secondly 24100, we will test the Monthly bearish number,
    which is 22415 (critical support). A monthly close under this number means a sustainable decline ahead is possible.

    Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean someone or something isn’t out to get you,lol.
