E-mini Update

Today I am long from 1365 in the March e-mini futures and still working at 1340 stop. I will get out at 4:00 pm New York time if the market is then trading below 1360.

hey carl
anonomous joe
dow has now broken 12200 which i thought would hold and we still have untill march to bottom
support now is 11921 which is just below the 2006 lows i have to relabel this as point 18
there is a bearish cycle from jan 21 to feb 6th . and i was looking for a rally from jan 7th to jan 21
something is wrong in my work .
also if point 23 was indeed put in
back in oct then we now have points 24 25 and 26 which is almost complete . so we have diverging labelings if that makes sence . we are either about to enter point 19 or we are about
to enter point 27 , both i have to weight as a 50 50 odds at this point in time . im favoring this as
point 18 ending and point 19 about to begin yet it is hard to ignore
the more bearish case which at this point in time is not failing .
proof will be in the pudding in mid year .

Just curious, why are you going against the trend. If you had shorted the market you would have made plentiful instead of stopping out all the time. You seem to be in the very small minority who still advocate new market high?

agree with you this is bottoming.. cash on sidelines is very high (see ratio of money market assets to market cap of s&p500). same thing happened in 1990 (huge rally after that) and 2003. people always panic at the wrong time
