    I will join in on the doom and gloom and throw my dart on the area 2600-2650 for an SP500 hard support area.
    Mary – Try an oral vaccine against travellers’ stomach problems. You need to take it two weeks before travel.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Semis Reversing To Move Higher – Plus SP500 bounced off the 200day. Looks like support but I would be careful longer term. On the positive side it shows pent-up demand to enter the market. I’m guessing that some of the side-line institutional money is entering the market at this logical technical point. You still have fundamental problems to work out – specifically the trade issue.

    I see that Dr.$Vix is still bearish the $SPX………..

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is the TLT once again since its breakout. Note the conviction of the breakout. Price didn’t just sneak above the double top with a nose poke like some of the major indexes did recently. It ‘gaped’ above the line and held and gaped up again. That is called a ‘breakaway gap’ or even a ‘runaway gap’ and is very bullish.

  5. Harry Says:

    Ron/BC——USO possible 10.50$. Thanks for your thoughts.

  6. Ron/BC Says:


    Here is a chart of USO. There has been a lot of talk from respectable cycle analysts about a major low in Crude in this time frame with a two year bull market ahead. Hard to believe that looking at the chart. But then again I never have been easily persuaded. Gotta have proof of the pudding……

  7. bruce Says:

    Armstrong has posted a new update……….the dow into june………could you share that with us Gary?……

  8. Harry Says:

    Ron/BC—–Thanks Ron.

  9. Ana Says:


    Thank you for your chart on UVXY on the weekend.

    I changed it to my idiosyncratic ways.

  10. Ron/BC Says:

    Re:#9 You’re welcome.

    That’s what I do all the time!

  11. Ana Says:


    I sent you my target for the head and shoulders on last night’s post.

    One never knows who is reading these posts.

  12. Ana Says:

    So, this certainly does not look good!

    Also, strike your climb to the top of Mount Everest off your list!

  13. bruce Says:

    tnx Ana
    just saw your target…… bucket list doesnt seem to be shrinking much……

  14. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is your chart back with my oddball adjustments on it. Note the Keltner Channel with a setting of 2.5 is especially timely with touches of the uppper or lower lines. One can even use 3.0 and it works well. Also note the RSI 8 matches up well with the CCI 20. And I like the RSI 21 on the bottom for above or below the 50 line. Sometimes it’s just plain choppy but a lot of the time it is very good for defining a bullish or bearish ‘trend’.

    Here is the Armstrong post

    The Dow rallied but as I pointed out, it was not in a breakout mode since the energy was declining as it was making new highs. But it also retested the former uptrend line and that was also a bearish indication. We now have two weekly sell signals at 25372 and 25207. If these are elected, then it becomes possible to test the 23000 area going into June. We still see an important turning point come this summer so let’s pay attention to the arrays and the reversals.
