    Amazing final 10 minute recovery putting SPX up 0.01%. Up and down playing with your fear and leaving you undecided at the end. 3,800 has been speculated as a possible bottom and we got within 10 pts but 3500 is the 50% retracement of the bottom to top rally. 50/50. Place your bets. This may have been a short term bottom with the final decline to say 3500 coming Sep/Oct.

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    Yes,we are getting very oversold with too many bears out there. That is usually when we get a solid bounce back with all those believers in stock stories getting long once again because this next time it’s true. Reminds me of the Little Red Riding Hood story. Here is the Fear and Greed Index and it is maxed out or close enough to it. I wouldn’t be holding any shorts right here as soon enough we’ll wake up to a major reversal back up again just to blow the shorts out of the water if for no other reason. There is always a good story to be told by the financial media.
    The 2nd chart shows price has fallen 900pts and is also still 900pts away from its long term uptrendline which will be touched at some point but not likely any time soon.

    Not to forget options for the month have closed so rhis weeks wild ride was all about the options. Next week we will who is really in controlnof the market

  6. FishFat Says:

    TMX Group ( has been in a trading range for two years. The price is near the top of the trading range, but several indicator suggest the potential for a breakout. That is just my opinion, not investment advice. Notice the MACD (12,26,9) is above the signal line and has recently moved above the zero level. Performance relative to the $TSX has recently turned positive. The MACD(50,200,10) is also turned up and may make a bullish cross of the signal line. The stock price could also fallback into the trading range after tagging resistance. A good time to be cautious.

  7. Ron/BC Says:


    Here is a chart of your analysis and sure enough price has been tracking sideways for a couple of years. Hard to say which way the break will be but I guess meanwhile anyone can sell resistance and buy support until it decides which way to break.

  8. Ron/BC Says:


    I see you already posted a chart of that I didn’t notice.

  9. FishFat Says:

    No problem, it is always good to get a second perspective. I noticed the Slow STO on your chart. It is overbought – another reason to be cautious at the top of the trading range. The entry point requires a breakout (and hold) above the trading range. There are alot of ifs and maybe yet.

    “””GO EDMONTON””””

    Go Flames Go …it’s not over until it’s over!

  12. RonBC Says:



    There are some players on Calgary that I can’t stand. Lucic for one. Glad he got a game misconduct as he’s just a goon. That was a really dumb move he made on the Edmonton goalie as it guaranteed he’d get a major penalty and accomplished nothing. My favourite player of all time was Bobby Clarke of the Philadelphia Flyers. Loved that team……………..

  13. dutchcanuck Says:

    Goon and Bobby Clark were one and the same, so disagree with you on that one.

  14. RonBC Says:


    Yes, Bobby Clarke was a nasty s.o.b. for sure but what impressed me was his effort. Never saw him coast around and always gave 110% despite the fact he was a diabetic. Never saw another player that had the drive that he had. Maybe he was just nuts, lol……………..
