Negative Divergence Continues
Negative divergence continues (MACD). There is something that just doesn't seem right
about this market. It goes up but without vigor. Something is missing. No 'umph'.
The much touted Cash for 'Clunkers' is a colossal failure. It seems everyone
connected with the Obama administration is really really bad with math! Their
arrogance is beyond belief. Japan has shown how to deal with such arrogance... throw
the arrogant bastards out of office. People are realizing the last election was a
mistake. November 2nd, 2010 will be a date of reckoning.
CNBC wants (needs) something to report. I have a feeling volatility is about to take
the spot light. It could get ugly.
W. D. Gann, a keen market observer, although not an astronomer, nevertheless, was
fascinated by the apparent coincidence of important market 'pivot points' and astronomical
dates. Theories exist for estimating time and price of important market turning points but
astronomical occurrences are computed with mathematical certainty.
There is no logical reason why these occurrences should coincide yet, empirically, they
have. The 'Full Moon' and 'New Moon', among others, have been cited. Therefore, one might
be well advised to be aware of their occurrence. Note: The first 5 business days of 2008
concluded on a 'New Moon' and we all know how that worked out. Coincidence?
9/4 Friday - Full Moon.
9/18 Friday - New Moon.
