I am not trying to predict which way the market is headed, I have no crystal ball. I'm just observing the way it is presently trending. The title of my blog is Financial Tides and just like you want to know High Tide, Ebb Tide and Low Tide when you go through an inlet you should know that when your investing also. Never try to swim against the tide.
A Code Green just means the all the indicators observe that the market is in an upward trend, Code Yellow is a confused or neutral trend and Code Red means the market has been trending down.
I try to be long when it's Green, cautious when it's Yellow and short or in cash when it's Red. Observe it, but don't try to outsmart it.
Let's take the BarChart indicators one at a time:
The Value Line index - approximately 1700 stocks. Is the index above or below it's Daily Moving Averages?
- 20 DMA - ABOVE
- 50 DMA - ABOVE
- 100 DMA - ABOVE
This looks very good and appears BULLISH
BarChart Market Momentum - approximately 5900 stocks. What percentage of all these stocks are trading above or below their Daily Moving Averages?
- 20 DMA - 87% are trading ABOVE their DMA
- 50 DMA - 86% are trading ABOVE their DMA
- 100 DMA - 90% are trading ABOVE their DMA
This is also very good and appears BULLISH
BarChart New High to New Low Ratios - number of stock hitting new highs or lows varies
- 20 Day new High/Low ratio - 1986/185 = 11 to 1
- 65 Day new High/Low ratio - 1246/84 = 15 to 1
- 100 Day new High/Low ratio - 1193/52 = 23 to 1
The are a much greater number of stocks hitting new Highs than stocks hitting new Lows - very BULLISH!

It would appear that the Market is in a strong upward trend and I'm fully invested Long in the Market.
