  • “ok so we have had the violent bear squeeze which HAS breached 3950. Because it has that then puts the money on the boom boom for a while – after this retracement now which now shouldnt (75% probability) hit new lows. Where this rally ends or will it go sideways for a while – those are the things i am working on. After this more major rally though (the first “proper” bear market rally) my GUESS is that it carries on UNTIL people think its over (the bear market i mean) at that point we start to move down and yes more lows to come before this bear is put to bed.

  • @techieman, thanks for your input – I think in the forthcoming months we will test a few new lows – IMHO it’s going to get worse before it get’s better – on a positive note however there is always an opportunity in a problem.
