Delivering The Web's Best Financial Commentary Straight To Your Inbox

January 7, 2017

Hello Fellow ChartWatchers!

A very happy new year to you all! Welcome to the first ChartWatchers Newsletter of 2017.

To kick off the new year, I am thrilled to announce a special webinar airing next Saturday, January 14th. Tom Bowley and Greg Schnell will be hosting an exclusive show titled "2017 Stock Market Outlook". Together, they will provide you with their individual outlooks for the upcoming year, including areas of the market that they find particularly attractive. Tom plans to share his thoughts on the sustainability of the 2016 year-end rally and will discuss how to identify a reversing market as we head into 2017. Greg will present some long-term macro concepts that appear to be setting up for the first quarter. This will benefit both Canadian and US investors.

This special webinar with Tom and Greg airs at 11:00am EST next Saturday, January 14th. It will be open for FREE to all StockCharts Members and is certainly not to be missed. To register, click here.

Dow Flirts With 20K, While NASDAQ Closes At Record High

Article Image Let's get this out of the way first. If you've been watching business TV, all they've been talking about is the Dow nearing the 20,000 level. Much to their dismay, it came close on Friday but couldn't make it. The Dow touched 19999.63 before backing off. Historically, big round numbers have acted as magnets during market advances. At the same time, traders are often programmed to take some...

I am One with the Trend and the Trend is with Me

Article Image I recently saw the new Star Wars movie, Rogue One, and found a way to tie technical analysis to one of the more interesting characters.

The SCTR is stuck at 2% even after Gold surged. The volume has started to improve, but it is still a lot less than the selling volume through November and December.

Guess What? "Official" Earnings Season is About to Begin

Article Image No one can argue with the fact that the market has been fascinating to watch since the election with all of the major indexes substantially higher since the most recent bottom on November 4. There's been a few minor pullbacks along the way, but not many as traders seem to be eager to jump in on any moves lower. And now traders will have another reason to get excited; earnings season is about to...

AT&T Takes a Nose Dive

Article Image A regular DecisionPoint webinar viewer and reader emailed me and suggested I take a look at AT&T because as he stated, "ouch". It was definitely a rough day for AT&T and what happened today has some very interesting implications. Price dropped almost 2% today.
