The 6 month cycle up phase reasserted itself last week.
All of the short term cycles up to 13 weeks resychronized with the 6 month cycle upturn. Cycle projections rose across the short term and intermediate spectrum. I also ran the regular quarterly update of long term projections. They also rose.
I should point out that those long term projections first pointed toward the market reaching 3900 last July, and pointing to 4000 in October, when the S&P was at 3300. We should not take the fact lightly that they now point higher still.
The swing trade chart picks list showed a small gain of 1.2% on average with an average holding period of just 4 days, as all but one pick, were new. This weekend I chose 4 new picks which appeared to have good potential for a decent sized swing move. All were buys.
The current screen had an impressive 75 bullish signals against just 8 bearish signals. But that’s less than half of last weekend’s buy signals. This diminution is normal as a trend progresses. The current numbers are still relatively large, suggesting that we remain in the early stages of the move.
