Bolt's bold prediction for next month
by  United States - Virginia boltman | 9 Comments

Ok, ok, I know this isn't a fantasy football site; BUT, as a diehard Chargers fan, I AM excited for the NFL season to start next week! Who's with me?! :D

With that said, here is my bold prediction to lock in gains next month:

As depicted in the chart below, the SPY monthly chart formed the second bullish outside reversal candle this year for the month of August. The other one was formed in February. Overall, this is a good sign for the intermediate term.

Starting to See Some Topping Signs
by  United States Tomanyiron | 4 Comments

The most notable are the SP Consumer Stpl Short-Term Volume Osc (!STVOXLP) and Volatility Index - CBOE Nasdaq 100 ($VXN).

This close to the new month has me a little reluctant to exit. Hindsight says I should have followed Bolt and his RSI (2) plan. Too late, so I will suffer through today, look for a bump tomorrow, or after the Holliday.

Didn’t someone say the first two weeks of September is supposed to be up? I hope he knew what he was talking about.

The TSP Charts and Returns page hasn't been updated since Aug 26. It also defaults to 2013. Can someone please update this? Thanks.

S-Fund looking good
by  United States inthecloud | 3 Comments

I plan on staying in the S-Fund a bit longer. Today will be 6 days in a row that the S-fund is embedded (to steal Ira's term) in the Slow Stochasitcs (K & D above 80) and there's a bit of room still to the upper Bolinger Band. I'll probably ride this train till the K/D turn down, then I'll sit out until Christmas seasonality.

The market seems to be beyond the emotion from Ukraine and Israel, so hopefully the remaining fed stimulus can give us a little more boost before the party ends. Injection from Europe and Japan may take us even a bit higher.

I FUND
by  United States armyrn | 5 Comments

The I fund seems to be gathering some momentum. Does anyone see value in getting in early next month or has that time come and gone?

Last Week AUG - Up Week Before the Holiday Weekend?
by  United States - Pennsylvania Sptms2086 | 5 Comments

Often, the market rises in the days leading up to a major holiday - So, am hoping that this last week of August is an up week (particularly, the latter part of the week) leading into the Labor Day Holiday. Perhaps, this pre-holiday market boost is due to collective optimism ahead of holidays. Whatever the cause, there does seem to be an upward market tendency just prior to major holidays. Any thoughts on this? Agree, disagree?
