DP TV: Recognizing Market Climaxes Can Help You Find Key Pivot Points


In this special evergreen episode of DecisionPoint, Erin discusses the concept of climax analysis. Market climaxes are important to recognize, as they generally will indicate whether the market is "initiating" a new move or if the current price move is "exhausting." Climax analysis picks up important market pivot points typically in the very short term, but, many times climaxes lead to extended price moves as well.

Following that, she notes the Swenlin Trading Oscillators (short term) are giving a good picture of impending reversals and direction the market will continue in. The good news, is the Energy Sector which is the leading sector. The industry group to watch is Oil Equipment and Services. Finishing up, Erin shares her "Stock To Watch."
