  1. Yes. It's all manual. I've been doing it long enough that it doesn't take me an inordinate amount of time to generate the charts. It's important that I keep it that way too. I'm going to give this some more thought. Maybe I can come up with a viable solution that doesn't take too much time and has some measure of value.
  2. Hi. Are you manually inputting your data?

    Hi Coolhand, I'm new to the site. Studied it hard and long and attached myself to a few folks who I think have good advice to offer on TSP allocations. I need to take control of my TSP. So I thank you in advance. Besides you can't be all that bad, we have two things in common, Navy vets and fisherman. Thanks for your insight.

    I agree with you coolhand..... ..... thanks for your advise ..... !!!! that is why I like to ask you person email because your system gives buy signal ... but I think the price is high already .... so ... .I like to ask you .... !!! thanks a lot !

    the past 6 months of 2010 I have 17% return I main trade is G , S , and I ... and I think I just lucky .... there are a lot things I confuse !!! and don't know !

    All, thanks for your time to explain for me !

    good luck for you too coolhand,

  9. I think risk is too high at the moment to get into stocks. I'm not saying the market can't go higher, but it's been up most of the month and a better buying opportunity may come over the next week or two. But predicting this market is extremely difficult and given the high degree of volatility I'd prefer to stay in cash or bonds myself. But that's just me.

    When my system gives a buy it just means you can buy stocks. Primarily C and S, but the I fund may be okay too depending on what the dollar is doing. Right now the dollar has been dropping so allocating something to that fund would make sense.

    Please be aware that I don't tell anyone how to trade their accounts. My purpose on this board is to give readers an informed perspective, but there are other perspectives out there too and they don't always agree with mine. Take your time to understand what's going on and why folks move in and out of the market. The more you understand, the better decisions you'll make. Good Luck!

The Bull Awakens

by coolhand on 05-29-2016 at 04:06 PM
Last week, I posted a chart of the NYSE and I said that price was likely to find support between the 2 lines I drew on the chart. I also said that there was a large, weekly doji that showed how much of a battle there was between the bulls and the bears; a battle the bulls won 2 weeks ago, but they had to lift the NYSE off a deep low. That low was about in the middle of my support area. I cautioned that price was fighting to stay above the 50 dma, but that overall I was leaning bullish for the coming

The Battle Continues

by coolhand on 05-22-2016 at 12:38 PM
Last week, I said that there was some key support areas getting tested among the major indexes.

This is the weekly chart of the NYSE that I posted last week. If you look at the red candlestick that depicts the weekly action from 2 weeks ago, you'll see that price settled right at the top of an area that I felt might be a reasonable area to look for support across the broader market. Last week's action produced a large, weekly doji that

Key Support Areas Being Tested

Mean returns & standard deviations for each fund for past 3-5 years-5-14-2016-10-16-34-am-jpg

Last week, I posted this same chart of the NYSE and noted the mixed picture that various technical indicators were painting. I felt that the stock market could go either way. After one week, we see that prices fell for the 3rd straight week on the NYSE, with most of those losses coming on Friday's sell-off.

Looking at the candlestick structure I see an area (between the blue lines) where support is likely to be found. Note that the upper

Where to Next?

by coolhand on 05-08-2016 at 04:20 PM
The rally off the February lows seems to have either ended or paused over the past few weeks and there are plenty of mixed indicators to choose from in terms of trying to ascertain where the market goes from here.

The NYSE, which is probably the best exchange to gauge the overall health of the stock market, shows us that price peaked more than a year ago and more recently hit a double top since October, which would seem to be bearish. But

The Bull is Still in Charge

by coolhand on 05-01-2016 at 10:10 AM
The major averages posted gains for the month of April, but the S&P 500 was up only 0.39%.

Still, it was a gain.

Now we have entered the weaker of the two 6-month cycles. "Sell in May and go away" is an old adage and it has been largely a good one for those who follow it's longer term advice.
