Welcome to the Bollinger Bands Letter Weekly Update for Thursday March 1st, 2018.
I have been on the road and the market has done its usual "Oh, I see that Bollinger is traveling" shenanigans. In three hard down days driven by fear of our new plain-speaking chairman of the Federal Reserve Board the US stock market has retraced 50% of its recovery rally. In my opinion stocks really need to hold in this vicinity.
I understand that there is uncertainty, but these concerns about the new Fed chairman are way overblown. The structure still looks OK, but nevertheless I am worried about the ability to generate such strong downside momentum.
I will have a clearer view and more to say when I review the weekly numbers on Saturday.
I have been working on our market-timing chart pack, so you will see some improvements when I post the next version on Saturday. Suggestions for this package are always welcome.
Details on our Allocations, Ice Breaker positions and ETF portfolios along with our Market Timing Chart Package can be found here:
Until Saturday, I wish you well.
