I have not posted here in awhile for a few reasons. First and most important lack of feedback. I have stated often here that I would prefer comments vs emails to encourage discussion. Since that has not happened I do not feel compelled to tackle the technical challenges of making these entries. Satellite internet and it's slow speed make this very difficult.
Secondly, in this day and age where so many people read one article from someone they don't know, and then they are the expert on every subject on earth. I am seriously contemplating retreating back away from the public and just trading like I always have. At times it is just not worth the stupid comments that are made towards you. The most recent was the accusation of me getting killed because I am a long term investor. An average hold time in trades of less than 2 days and I am a long term investor being killed by this decline? Just read the last post and several before if you view me as that.
Now with all that aside, and referencing my last post where I thought the low would come in March, we can see that a potential low is in fact setting up here. The strong seasonal tendency for the decennial pattern to have March Lows, combined with the commercials stepping up their buying here, and interest rates tanking, is the perfect storm. This is setting up very nicely for a major rally. We will see how we look at month's end which is the ideal cycle spot, but it is sure looking good right now.
One more dip would be ideal, but we do not always get what we want. FYI, this particular setup is actually a buy and hold for about 6 months when it goes unlike most of what I do.
