Focus List 10/20 - All Market Watch With Inside Days & Inside Daily Ranges

Geoff Bysshe | October 20, 2011

Due to the fact that we have a live training session tomorrow (Thurs) I’ll keep this brief. The market watch 4 all had inside days today and as noted in my last Focus List they have all marked out a pretty significant 4-6 day range. After such a strong run up over the last few weeks, it should not be a surprise that they consolidate.  The high and the low of their respective ranges should

Focus List 10/17 - Look at the Q's, But don't forget the others

Geoff Bysshe | October 17, 2011

The QQQ is now positively stacked and sloped on the 10, 20 and 50-day moving averages. Plus it's over the 200-day MA and the high of the last 2 months of consolidation. In short, its trend has turned up and it's broken out! The other three markets are still in the process of trying to reverse their down trends as measured by the 10, 20, and 50 day MA's and they have not broken out

Focus List 10/14 - Trading Breakouts and Reversals - Dojis & Compression

Geoff Bysshe | October 14, 2011

I could just say, today's answer is in the 9/20 "Advanced Pivot Patterns" training video. In the 9/20 video (available to subs only) I reveal the same patterns that exists in all but the Q's after Thursday's trading. The current stage of the pattern is one of a warning that upside momentum may be waning and more importantly, if we get an opening range breakdown below the pivot in the IWM, SPY or DIA it

Focus List 9/12- SPY's On The Edge

Geoff Bysshe | September 12, 2011

I put a lot of weight on the condition of the SPY because the world watches the S&P 500 with a lot of respect. On Friday it closed right on a major inflection point – a bear flag trend line that has been touched 7 times. BUT. I always consider all four indexes – SPY, DIA, IWM & QQQ. And when I do that I don’t come to the same conclusion I would with a

Focus List - 8/15: Last week's range is key

Geoff Bysshe | August 15, 2011

Welcome to the new members who joined us late last week! For both new and existing members, we are transitioning the Focus List back from it being provided by Mish’s Market Minute. You will now see it both as an email and posted in the Mastery Program Area of the site in the Focus List section. We’ll try to get the email out the evening before the market opens. It is always recommended that you

Focus List - 7/19, SPY bounce off key support, Q's way ahead

Geoff Bysshe | July 19, 2011

I've put charts of only SPY's and Q's today below. The key point is SPY found support an the prior daily range, and the Q's never came close to its equivalent range and in fact is looking like it will open over the key daily level 57.85 (high of 2 inside day range). Both are in a position to break the trend lines from the highs. This doesn't mean its all clear to move higher.

Focus List 6/30 - QQQ & IWM have recovered 50% of the correction

Geoff Bysshe | June 30, 2011

Seems hard to believe, but it's true, the Q's and IWM are at a the 50% line from the highs to the lows at the 200-day MA. Aside from this being a good point to expect the market to take a break and consolidate, it is the end of the month and a holiday weekend ahead. I'd expect the market to consolidate, with a bias to the upside. This means long side OR reversals on

Focus List 6/29 - Two strong days & now a big gap highert

Geoff Bysshe | June 29, 2011

Markets are gapping higher and well over the daily consolidation. This comes after two very strong days and all of which has been fueled in a large part by the expectation that Greece would pass an austerity plan. As of right now it seems as though the plan has passed. So the news is out. This gap could go either way, but I would now look for support on dips. There are so many stocks

Focus List 6/13 - After 6 down weeks don't assume anything

Geoff Bysshe | June 13, 2011

The market's decline has been steady and calm. For me this is bearish action. The Q's and IWM's are near their 200-day MA, and by a number of measures - RSI, McClellan, up/down volume, etc. we are near oversold levels, so there are reasons to anticipate a bounce. However, I like to see some evidence of strength or big capitulation before I anticipate a bounce. Being down so steadily for so long, I'd prefer to
