$COMPQ - Chart Link - testing the 200 day MA
$RUT - Chart Link - slightly through it
Hello everyone, here's tonight's newsletter, also please note that I discuss a few administrative thinks like our SPY Professional system which went long on Monday and hit it's first profit target scaleout today, and our world class BPT MA Deluxe trending indicator. The SPY Pro system and the BPT MA Deluxe are more than worth the tiny cost of a paid membership.

Also some of you have asked questions regarding my long term 401K paint dry system, I also discuss that here as well.
I had some appointments this morning and so I just now updated the trades for the systems to reflect the SPY Pro and Ver 2 systems closing out their trades, also here's two charts of the SPY Pro and Ver 2 systems
I have completed the 401K system section with text, current chart, statistics, and past charts.
The long only version of the system, your money grew by 421 times the original investment vs 30 times via buy and hold.
and for the long/short version, it grew by 745 times wow. Also what's nice is that I can take this method all the way back to 1922 using the Dow Jones and the system performs beautifully, even avoiding the 1929 crash. I will put together that table one day however not today obviously. Also I am going to add these long term rules to the BPT MA Deluxe to catch these
Note I have not yet completed the BPT MA Deluxe tab but will do so either tonight or early this week. I have both newsletters this weekend so my time is limited.
BAA - Chart Link - clearly was a pretty awesome day if you took some gold stocks home from yesterday or bought some first thing this morning as they started off flat with GDX only up a few cents.
Hello everyone, first off I hope you're have a nice weekend! Here's a detailed newsletter which covers my long term 401K paint dry system, which just went to cash on Friday. I explain the system in great detail, so please have a look, it's also a very nice system for you to give your family and friends who don't trade but want to beat the pants off 'buy and hold' but still catch long term trends and be out and safely in cash during bear markets.
Hello everyone, as you know, a while back I developed a long term system based on a monthly chart of the S&P 500, it's affectionately called the 'paint dry' system because the trades can last for years. I designed it not for traders, but for family and friends, neighbors who do not trade the market and will never trade the market, but want to do better than buy and hold. The system is designed to keep you in entire bull markets but have you out for bear markets, for example the system went to cash in Jan 2008 and then went back long on Mar 31st 2009 just 3 weeks off the bear market bottom and is still long almost 5 years later. My Long only version of the system, from 1962 to present your money grew by 289 times the original investment vs 30 times buy and hold. For my long/short version your money increased by 534 times vs 30 times buy and hold - see the attached tables where the trade and stats are listed.
Currently the system has been in this long trade for 1794 days, the average is 1235 days, however the trade from Oct 2002 to Jan 2008 lasted 1918 days, while the long from Aug 31st 1984 to Aug 31st 1984 lasted 2191 days.
HOWEVER the system is going to go to cash at the end of this month because of a technical situation that has occurred with the market. It has to do with price closing for 20 months consecutively above the 8 MA along with the Willams% indicator above 90%. The system will be going to cash at the close of this month and will then look to buy a pullback. The last time the system did this was in Mar 31st 1998, it then bought the sharp pullback and went back long on Aug 31st 1998 (see the 3rd chart). Over the weekend I will discuss in more detail what this technical signal is. Do NOT take this is a sell short signal right now, and also the previous time this occurred the market stayed out for 3 - 5 months before having a hard pullback, if history holds true then maybe this portends to our market having a strong correction either in May or fall time frame for general seasonality.
I will discuss this briefly in tonight's newsletter, however I will discuss it in more detail on the weekend in a separate newsletter.
Hello everyone, here's my most recent newsletter, I discuss the general market action, precious metals, and of course my powerful BPT MA Deluxe trending indicator and some amazing educational pieces, so make sure to check it out!

Jan closed the month red - that is a bearish start for the year and generally how the market finishes Jan is a good barometer of how the market will do for the year - so not a good start!
Anyway here's a few S&P 500 charts - a few weeks back we were showing a bear wedge developing on the S&P 500, clearly that's played out nicely now. Also OPEX clearly marketed a nice top in Jan (notice from the 4th chart how options expiration has been a good guide at marking infection points (tops and bottoms) in the market.
The S&P 500 is now testing an trendline line, see the second chart - if this trendline is lost the next logical support area is the 200 day MA - which by the way hasn't been tested in a long time and is over due.
I've you've listened to my newsletters, I've stated many times over the last 1 - 2 months that I think the market will have a 10 - 15% correction or more in the 1st quarter of this year or in April/May which is typically the weak time of the year - maybe it's starting?
We are now 5 years into this bull market which began in March 2009, getting a bit long in the tooth - 2014 won't be the 'cake walk' that 2013 was, the gains will be much harder.
