Friday's Short-Term Uptrend Could Launch A Summer Rally
A new short-term uptrend started on Friday, June 25, and it looks like it could be setting up a decent summer rally. Now, the charts suggest a nice, bullish setup for trading in the coming week.
Last Week's Short-Term Downtrend Continues
The short-term downtrend continues. It took just two days early this week for the PMO to go from the top of its range to the bottom. Negative emotions took control of the selling this week, and there were a number of people screaming at each other.
A Short-Term Downtrend Started Before Friday's Selloff
A short-term downtrend started on Thursday, June 9, and Friday's selling was severe and was mostly attributed to the hot inflation report. But I suspect that the buyers had dried up by Wednesday, and that the market was ready to sell off regardless.
It Is Time To Look For The Next Downtrend
The short-term uptrend continues. With the PMO at the top of the range, it's time to be looking for signs of the next downtrend. If you like to buy the dips and sell into rallies using the PMO index, then it's the time to be taking partial profits.
A New Short-Term Uptrend Has Begun
A new short-term uptrend started on Wednesday, May 25, and the PMO index went from zero to 100 in just three days. If you blinked, you may have missed the low-risk window of opportunity to buy stocks.
The Short-Term Downtrend Continues Once Again
The short-term downtrend continues, and the PMO index remains at its lows. This might be the longest period of time that I have seen the PMO index at the bottom of its range.
