Quick buy update ....

The Dogs Are Lining up.

After any extreme sell off takes place and people finish  discussing all the reasons why there can be no recovery, it's often a good time to go shopping.  Why?  When it gets overdone, the bargains can be great %-Wise.  Recently while OIL  & NATGAS   sold off beyond expectations , I noticed that the equities stopped selling off and began building constructive bases. Temporary bottoms or permanent? Its too early to say for sure , but trade-able?  Most certainly.

 Here at Chartfreak, we have been buying & trading  them for weeks now.  I want to share some of the charts and ideas that we are again looking at , since I am expecting another leg higher.

OIL Feb 10- Some said "Bear flag"  We had been trading energy stocks , and I  saw signs that OIL wanted to go higher.

BOUNCING

After watching various sectors endure some  prolonged sell-offs, we've been able to buy near the lows and make some decent gains %-Wise.  This does raise a few questions.  Are these THE lows?  Are these sectors  just bouncing from oversold conditions, only to continue lower later with a double bottom or even making lower lows?  Lets start off by looking at some "lows"

 This is our current chart of OIL

$WTIC FEB 13

You see definite signs of improvement in this bounce, but I wanted to point something else out just to keep us alert...

Buy The Dip?

At times we sell and stay out, conditions may not be setting up for a low risk buying opportunity.  At other times, however,  we wait patiently for the trade to come to us and then we Buy The Dips.  Are we in that position now? Some sectors are saying,  "Yes, you may want to buy the dip!" lets review several sectors first and then discuss what might be setting up as a good long entry.   To the charts!...

WATCHING INTENTLY

My observations in last weeks reports and the  weekend report are playing out very well and my recent recommendations in Energy  are already  up 20 - 40 % .   There isn't much to add, but we are watching how things unfold to try to see whether we have further upside in some sectors, reversals in other sectors , and so on.  This helps us to see where our  opportunities may arise in the future. To the charts....

I expected a turn down, but wasnt shorting it this time

Learning Obedience ?

I have learned over the years that you never win when you try to tell the markets what to do. It is best to be patient and listen to what the markets want to do... being patient and less forceful  can help  keep one from  getting bitten . With that in mind, I have a lot to look at in the weekend report, Equities, Natgas, Oil, Energy stocks, Gold & Miners , etc so ...To The Charts!

After shorting the trading range a couple of times at the tops with TZA  , I posted this Friday Morning

NASDAQ FEB 5

I wanted to watch things here and even though the markets did reverse into the close and started to head down, I still didnt take the short side. Let me show you why...
