Trying to guess the direction of the market, and by extension a particular stock, is a tricky game at best. After weeks of small losses and what appeared to be indecision on which way price was going. We had, on Thursday, a huge updraft creating nine new all time highs. Of course Friday was not as kind to us and many stocks ended up taking a breather. The good thing is lines of resistance and areas of consolidation have been broken through to the upside. I often muse, that maybe its a good thing that I know little about the workings of particular companies that I trade in. All I have is “follow the system. Our system dumped one and gained two stocks this week. It seems like the whipsaw action on stocks may be steadying out and price direction is being picked.
