Is This Back to the Future?

My computer world is not any better today than it was yesterday, but I feel better. I did what I could do for my laptop, but it is in a coma. It will require equipment and knowledge beyond my scope to bring it around. Given that I am away from my hometown, I will keep it on life-support until I return. No worries; it is stable enough to wait three more days. In the meantime, I said I feel...

S&P 500: Use Past Patterns To Predict Future Market Moves

Humans are creatures of habit and that is why history will almost always repeat at some time in the future. The same holds true for our financial system as well as the stock market. I have always been a big “fractal pattern” believer and do a lot of my research for future direction, based off of a similar pattern that has happened in the past.

Swing Trade: Aussie Bounces Off Support

Swing Trade: Aussie Bounces Off Support

For three weeks the Aussie dollar pressed chart support at 0.866 U.S. dollars and stabilized, and this week is generating follow-through buying. Enhancing the odds of further upside from here is the tall upper shadow (selling into price strength) and small real body (open and close are close to each other) that appeared two weeks ago on the weekly chart.

Not A Good Monday, For Me …

Today is not starting out well for me. Two words sum it up – computer problems. First, my normal work computer gave me the “blue screen of death” this morning, and for those who know Microsoft Windows, well, you know that this is as bad as it gets with Windows.
