  2. Winding it Up

    by , 06-05-2011 at 07:02 PM (Coolhand's Market Analysis)
    The Seven Sentinels are on a sell, and the charts aren't looking bullish, but time and time again we see this market put in sharp reversals that leave slower traders in the dust. We could be seeing this playing out once again as the market has been hitting lower lows for about a month now. The right catalyst could see prices propel to new highs.

    This Blog is the start of a new series titled Tips & Tricks. Within this series I'll share some of the things I've learned that I feel give me an edge within the markets. Perhaps you've heard the old adage "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." It was written by a brilliant man named George Sanayana but as with most quotes, they always get paraphrased, so here's the real deal.
