Technical Analysis or News?

Technical Analysis or News?

There's been a long running debate between the technical analysis chartists and the fundamentalists and both sides can make their case for being "right".  Both sides often think that their way is best and the other side is full of you know what...

Since no one can predict the future how did the recent Federal Reserve's hawkish position on interest rates that's filled the news just so happen to occur during a time when chartists like us were anticipating a potential pull back? 

(This is an updated post to include recent news and recent charts because this scenario occurs over and over again...)

What is a "Black Swan Event" and How the Next One Could Shake the Financial World (again)

What is a "Black Swan Event" and How the Next One Could Shake the Financial World (again)

The term "Black Swan" denotes an unexpected financial crisis with profound consequences, merging extreme rarity with a significant impact on stock markets and risk management.

It’s often stated that “history repeats itself.”

I NEVER Believed in Technical Analysis Until I Realized This...

I NEVER Believed in Technical Analysis Until I Realized This...

When I was in MBA school back in the late 1980s (yeah that's me back then long before gray hair) it was drilled into me that a company’s stock price was always tied to its financial statements. You know, Profit and Loss statements, Balance Sheets, etc and all that fancy financial lingo. 

And so I went through much of my early adult life not really ever knowing otherwise. But along the way I had heard of this “technical analysis” stuff but considered it something like voodoo or witchcraft because as far as I knew it had absolutely nothing to do with the fundamentals of a company’s financial performance.

Until one day I saw a chart of the S&P 500 with standard deviations drawn on it based on the previous day’s settlement price. 
 
Hmmmm…. That looked interesting I thought.

Is the S&P 500 Bear Market Over?

Is the S&P 500 Bear Market Over?

By definition, a bear market is when price drops 20% or more from its recent or all time highs.  So for the S&P 500 ticker /ES one could say that technically speaking the bear market is over because price is now approximately 15% off the all time high set back in October 2021.

But is the recent run up simply a "Bear Market Rally" or are the bulls firmly back in charge gunning for new all time highs?  See this before your next trade!

When the next down cycle comes, and it will definitely come at some point caused by “something” we’re likely to experience some higher time frame technically correct pull backs like we saw in March 2020.
