    Thank you for your market daily digest - it’s the bricks and mortar of what happened and your brief take on what’s next. You’re 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!

We can see that price on the S&P bounced near its 50 dma and retraced more than half of its losses earlier in the week. It's back in its trading range again. Momentum is trying to turn up. The

Price on the S&P remained above its 50 dma, but the retrace was limited given the extent of the selling. The market often bounces after some hard selling, but for right now it's only a bounce. Price on the DWCPF also bounced, but it did probe lower around mid-day. Momentum remains bearish.

Market in Transition? Posted by Coolhand

In my last post I said the market likes to ambush traders when they don't expect it. Today felt like one of those days. The S&P took a good loss, but somehow the DWCPF

Friday Rally Gives Way to Monday Sell Off - Posted by Coolhand

The pullback did not do a whole lot of damage to the S&P chart, but it did push price back into the upper end of the S&P's recent trading range. Momentum dipped. The DWCPF failed to hold its 50 dma and closed at
