LOOK AT THE HIGHS BEING PUT IN, IN THE WHEAT CONTRACTS
INDICES: 2/1/11: Higher closes yesterday for the cash and dow futures along with the S&P’s and nasdaq. All of the indices continue to be in strong uptrends even after making new recent lows before rallying to settle higher in reversal type action. A WORD OF ADVICE FROM A BROKER WHO HAS LEARNED THE HARD WAY. I know many of you are skeptical of the bull move in the indices especially when you look at the world economically. We have a large debt, huge unemployment and the list goes on and on. However, one of the things I’ve learned over my almost 39 years of futures experience is that: ‘It is what it is’. We are in a bull market-end of the story. By trying to continually pick a top without strong technical indicators is a recipe for disaster. Those of you reading my comments know what I’m talking about. We’ve all done it. The question is, have you learned yet?. I have clients who have been trading for years the same way with poor results. It’s not uncommon but all it leads to are losses and tax right-offs most of the time. BUY SIGNALS FOR THE DOW, S&P’S AND THE NASDAQ. CALL FOR DETAILS!
