What A Week It Was…

You want volatility? You got it. You want travel
range, you got it. No question about it–there was a lot of action in the market
this past week. I wanted to point out Wednesday and Thursday in particular.
After Wednesday’s close, it really kind of looked like the end of the world was
beginning. We took out the recent swing lows and it sure seemed like all the
analysts in the media had worried looks on their faces.

But, as usual, that was the good news. We had
plenty of buy signals in Larry Connors’

How Markets Really Work Daily Report
. If you have Larry’s book,

How Markets Really Work
, you probably figured out the signals yourself.
The point being: knowledge is power. Get the service or get the book
(on sale this weekend)–and maybe capture some moves like this in the
future.
