The New Trading for a Living

Dr. Alexander Elder launches "The New Trading for a Living" from Dr Alexander Elder on Vimeo.

June 14, 2017

In my May letter to you I wrote: "...we see as clear a structure of a bull market as you're going to get, with an orderly pattern of higher highs and higher lows. ... It reflects the resilience of bulls and a relative weakness of the bears."

The market continued to rally, but now, as we approach the period of summer doldrums, let's review our charts for any clues what to expect in the weeks and months ahead.

Mr Bull stumbled last Friday, regained its balance on Monday, then rallied on Tuesday. Even the hurt FANG stocks (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google) had stabilized and many of them rallied. Keep in mind that extremely sharp breaks, such as the ones we saw last week, are typically followed by a reflex bounce and then by a slow grind back to the original lows or even lower. Such double bottoms - slow to form and stressful for holders - often create bases for fresh rallies.
