    If I'm interpreting correctly, next week would be one of the "Nasty 7," FWIW, I don't think the week in September did anything remarkable.

    I think you are right, next week is the week after Oct week 3 so by the article's premise we would pull our money tomorrow and sit out next week and get back in on October 25th. Sept 2021 "nasty week" was 9/20 to 9/24. Since this is based on S&P 500 we would look to what happened to C fund that week. Getting out on the friday before (9/17) share price was $66.66 and back in on the following Monday (9/27) was $66.82 so we would have actually missed a small gain. That being said, that Monday and Tuesday (9/20, 9/21) had a decent drop but it was made up by the end of the week.

    Interesting article though.

    So much for the 'nasty weeks' play. The last one and this one had no significant decline. I'm thinking the market infrastructure, BOTs, online no-fee trading, now RobinHood, has changed so much that these historical looks are no longer valid.

    I completely agree, there is no rule that says the indices and the charts will act like they did in the past. Even if markets were stagnant entities that worked one way that would be hard to say. But its implausible to expect patterns to stick around too long with how ever evolving the whole system has become.

    Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving! Sorry I haven't been posting much, looks like I've fallen completely off the poster list . At any rate, trying to keep my head in the game, making some good plays on the side in the brokerage account, PLUG is doing great, taking a bath on PYPL and V though!

    This is a DBA link I stole a while ago, but now there is a new feature. The red half circle bouncing ball at the top of the chart. I read on some website about this periodicity and it coinciding with market bottoms/downturns, anyone else familiar with this? Not sure why it appeared on the chart.

    First I've seen of that, but it missed a few bottoms such as the one around Oct. 1st, if that is what it's supposed to represent.

    It is. this is a cycle indicator for those who use cycles in trading. you should be able to adjust the cycle period or (like Slim's system) add multiple cycle periods. it doesn't exactly indicate a bottom, just a likely point at which stocks will be at their lowest or highest during that cycle period. the general trend up or down is still identified using other metrics and the combination of those and other signals, with a cycle bottom/top can indicate a market bottom/top.

    Hummm... Nice chart. Circles are a parabolic SAR overlay, an option in stockcharts, set with parameters of .02, .2. I can tell the chart is not mine as I don't use SAR overlays, Ichimoku clouds and three indicators shown at bottom, but Coolhand used clouds all the time. . Really miss his charts and commentary. In any case I like tge parabolic as it would indicate we have upside coming... Will see... Best wishes to you Whipsaw!
