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...

So often I get asked "Tom, where do you think the market is heading?"
I start by saying the better question is "where could the market be heading?"
Because what I think doesn't matter to price action and no one knows with any certainty where the markets are heading.
I don't make predictions, I don't call tops/bottoms however, I may react to price when it reaches a predetermined level of interest by trading or investing in that particular index, equity, commodity, Forex, etc.
