The Call For The Week of Oct 27th:

Stocks continued their bounce last week on benign economic data and improved earnings. Dow Theory remains in a secondary reaction with a binary outcome: either we reach new highs and are 'in the clear' or the lows of two weeks ago are given and a change in primary trend is signalled. Caution rules the day.

THURS: We are cautiously wrong-footed but the outside reversal in the Transports yesterday after the Fed announcement may be a precursor to lower prices.

Long: 25% TLT, 25% SHY, 50% cash.

A Dow Theory bullish signal has been re-confirmed several times since the original BUY at 13,649.70 on 12/31/13. The Dow Theory is a form of technical analysis that relies on detecting trends in the stock market to determine an investment strategy. The detection of these trends may be interpreted differently by different analysts and the opinions expressed on this website may not be shared by other individuals who apply the same principles of The Dow Theory. Past performance is not an indication of future returns. It should not be assumed that any recommendations made will be profitable or without the risk of loss or will equal the performance of the benchmark portfolio. All investments involve the potential loss of capital.
