September 12, 2017

I skipped writing Books & Trades in August. Reminds me of southern Europe which pretty much closes for business in August. I recently had my genome analyzed and found that 0.2% of my ethnic background is "southern European." I guess that entitles me to an August off? Joking of course. I was busy trading that month (for a nice 5-figure gain) and posted regularly in SpikeTrade, which you're very welcome to join if you like reading and perhaps following my market analysis.

By now the bull market has resumed, with many indexes and stocks reaching lifetime highs. Happy to report that on August 22 we had a "Spike Bounce signal," marked by a tall green arrow in the chart below. The signal came from the New High - New Low Index, which I consider the best leading indicator of the stock market. My e-book about NH-NL is available on our site.
