In the Friday, April 24 presentation, Jerry opened with a great explanation about how to read Candlesticks in the VectorVest program With our filled and unfilled red and green candlesticks we get a lot more information quickly than most services that use either white and black filled candlesticks or red and black candlesticks.

july 30 Searches Candle 2SOTW Q&A Video and Slides: We had a terrific turnout and an excellent webcast in our regular CA SOTW Q&A presentation Monday, July 27. We did a complete market review, looked at a few stocks and most important, answered a lot of questions about Jerry’s candlestick presentation. In case you missed it, you can view the recording BY CLICKING HERE

SLIDES ATTACHED: As promised during the webcast, I am pleased to attach below my slides from the Q&A, complete with descriptions about the new Candlestick searches. You will find the new searches under the UniSearch tab – Searches – Candlesticks folder. (hover your mouse at top right of slides for detach option)

P.S. In Monday’s presentation we talked about VectorVest’s MTI nearing the 0.60 level, a historically significant signal that we may be nearing a market bottom. VectorVest guidance remained to use caution and wait at least for a Primary Wave/Up with follow-through before stepping in to new positions. Well, Monday was an up day and yesterday, (Wednesday), the market soared after a slow start in which the MTI fell briefly to 0.59. So, tempting to trickle in I’m sure, but still no primary wave up as I pointed out in yesterday’s weekly CA Color Guard Report Video: Click for CA Color Guard Video Well, today we have it! The Primary Wave turned up this afternoon and has held at the close. As I mentioned in yesterday’s Color Guard video, it’s time to get your shopping lists ready if we get follow-through tomorrow. If you’re a more conservative Green Light Buyer, the earliest we could get a green light in the price column is Tuesday next week.

July 30 trial offer imageGood to Know: Historically, one of the safest times and often the most explosive times to buy is when we start to get Primary Wave Up and Green Light Buyer signals after the MTI has fallen below 0.60. (See Oct. 20 PW/Up) So, with probability on our side, let’s be ready and anticipate continued follow-through.
