Here are some of the testimonials I have received in the last few days, following the decline. I think hearing from investors following my work through the decline is important because it would be easy to agree when the markets are at the highs. 

"I do not make any decisions until I have viewed and watched your videos. You have saved me, from my self, several times. Thanks for shedding the light on this market."

- Rory R, Colorado March 8, 2020

"I have been following Greg for three years. I count on his thorough technical analysis of the markets including the commodities to assist me in understanding the big picture. Greg is an outstanding technical analyst. - (Spelling correction on words 'thorough' and 'analyst' by Greg). Thank you for your insight."

Oil and the Dominoes Paper

I wrote this paper back in 2016, as we made the lows in the market. What is important is to be aware of how oil affects other sectors. As you scroll through the article, you can see the red line move to the right on each chart as sector after sector followed oil lower.

Note the quote by Jamie Dimon.

It would not surprise me to see this play out again. The bottom line, in my opinion, is that this is not over, but we are already down 20% on all the indexes. My thoughts are to give it a chance to level out, unless you like to play the bounces. Once oil settles, we'll be able to rally.

I have changed my technical analysis since I wrote the article. One of the improvements in my analysis since 2016 is my personal Schnell Strength Index, which subscription members have access to each week. The Schnell Strength Index would find the low of 2016 to help investors get back in within weeks of that major low.

Here are a few more testimonials

"I have been an individual investor for over forty years. Greg's analysis and commentary are, hands down, the best I have ever seen. I have become a better investor since subscribing to Greg's investment service and I have both made, and saved, a lot of money by heeding his insights.

"Why do I find his work so helpful?

  • his encyclopedic knowledge of the nuances of technical analysis.
  • his humility and lack of self-promotion.
  • his use of historical context to clarify current market behavior
  • his emphasis on capital preservation.
  • his wide-ranging knowledge of equity, bond, currency, international and commodity markets
  • his ability to make complex concepts easy to understand"

"For years I was a self taught charter, trying to find my way through all the different indicators, moving averages, candlesticks, etc etc. I spent countless hours weaving my way through the multiple youtube pages, websites and listening to anyone that would talk about charting. After trial and error and clicking through countless links, I stumbled across some of your work. It made a lot of sense to me, a very broad look at the markets and sectors. Not only am I a member of your website now but I pretty much have jumped on the Schnell charting bandwagon and only listen to your teachings. You have changed my charting knowledge quite significantly, improved my place in the markets and I thank you for that."

Today we have the drop in crude. We still have the COVID-19 issues, weakness in Europe, etc. While buying the dips is sporty, keep your risk controlled.
