    Thank you for your market daily digest - itís the bricks and mortar of what happened and your brief take on whatís next. Youíre easy to understand without the personal bias/guesstimate of what may/not happen. Keep it up. Most grateful.
  2. 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.
  3. Hi. Are you manually inputting your data?

    Everytime I read what you have to say it's like Keanu Reeves is talking.
  5. Thanks mayday. I've learned a lot myself over the years on this MB.

    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,

  10. 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!

By the end of the day, the S&P 500 had erased all losses (on the day) and actually closed modestly positive. The DWCPF came close to doing the same thing, but closed moderately lower. Both indexes show price coming near the

Consolidation Continues - Posted by Coolhand

The selling is still out of the ordinary. The charts are showing a short term (to this point) dip after a multi-day rally starting at the beginning of the month. The 50 dma is still

Is it Different This Time? Posted by Coolhand

That's not bad at all and actually bolsters the possibility that this is yet another buying opportunity (DWCPF bounced on Friday). It also doesn't hurt that NAAIM remains bulled up.

More Profit Taking - Posted by Coolhand

Of course, the question is whether it's just another buying opportunity or is it different this time. Last year at this time it was different. But unlike last year, I haven't sensed any switches being flipped (as yet).

Bears Having Trouble Holding Down Price - Posted by Coolhand

Overall, we have limited damage on the charts. I would argue we don't really have any if we allow
