Count-a-lishious

My apologies for being MIA most of this trading session but I have been working. Today’s tape has kept us in the sideways grind we’ve been enduring for weeks now. A hard run up followed by a sell off, followed by sideways action and as I’m typing this the tape is pushing back up again hard. Seems any remaining fear among investors has quickly dissipated – plus poor ole’ bucky just keeps asking for punishment. Time for a wave count:

Living Inside a Broken Clock – Monday, Nov. 30, 2009.

Chart Medley

In preparation for next week I think my intrepid stainless steel rats need some low carb & high protein charts to sink their teeth into:

If you have never heard about the II Survey: Each week the service Investors Intelligence surveys some 140 financial newsletter writers to determine whether they are leaning bullish or bearish in their opinions to subscribers. The resulting Investors Intelligence Survey compiles the data to arrive at a weekly percentage of bulls v.s. bears. The Survey is considered a contrarian indicator, since extremes in either direction are signals of reversal of the market’s current trend. We like contrarian indicators – that’s [...]
