Monthly Commentary September 20th 2006
As with most things to do with trading, everything looks obvious in hindsight.
The close above 1325 on 9/20/6 indicates we are now in an extended 3rd Wave
of a 5 wave uptrend on the monthly chart. Since there is theoretically unlimited upside potential, and limited downside
(a close below 1290 would indicate Wave 3 was probably finished) we are now long on the monthly chart with
an initial trailing stop at 1290.
Yearly Commentary September 20th 2006
The close above 1325 on 9/20/6 indicates
we are not in Wave 1 of a 5 wave downtrend, but that this is an extended Wave 5 of the uptrend. Since
there is theoretically unlimited upside potential and limited downside risk (a close below 1230 would indicate
that Wave 5 was probably over) we are now long on the yearly chart with an initial trailing stop at 1230.
