Doji Means Indecision

The markets formed a doji in week one of 2012. This is a sign of indecision and could be expected at the onset as traders and hedge funds begin to pick up trading again in the new year. That being said it is the long term investors which drive the long term trend of the markets. Aside from the intraday and a few small daily trends, we have really gone nowhere in the past year. We saw a few longs…

New Target for the SP500, Higher or Lower?

The ES, or the E-mini S&P Futures hit a pivotal level on 4/18 which has sent the market screaming higher.

Wk35: Mkt Forecast

Well spaced news for the upcoming week. We are anticipating a rally this week at least in to the 1082s on the /ES. If we move up and break 1093 then we will look to buy the first major pullback. The top traders and hedge fund managers should be coming back from holiday after Labor Day and the market action should really start to pick up again.
