Stock Barometer Analysis
The barometer has issued a Buy Signal, Placing us in Buy Mode.
The Stock Barometer is my proprietary market timing system. The direction, slope and level of the Stock Barometer determine our outlook. For example, if the barometer line is moving down, we are in Sell Mode. A Buy or Sell Signal is triggered when the indicator clearly changes direction. Trend and support can override the barometer signals.
Stock Barometer Cycle Time
Tuesday is day 1 in our Up Cycle.
The Stock Barometer signals follow 5, 8, 13, 21 and sometimes 34 day Fibonacci cycles that balance with 'normal' market cycles. Knowing where you are in the current market cycle is important in deciding how long you expect to maintain a position.
Potential Cycle Reversal Dates
2009 Potential Reversal Dates: 1/20, 2/11, 3/7, 3/15, 4/8, 4/16, 4/27, 5/7, 6/8, 7/2, 7/17, 9/14. We publish these dates up to 2 months in advance.
We're looking for the markets to movehigher into our next key reverssal date, 9/14.
My Additional timing work is based on numerous cycles and has resulted in the above potential reversal dates. These are not to be confused with the barometer signals or cycle times. However, due to their past accuracy I post the dates here.

Use the following spread/momentum indicators to assist in your trading of the QQQQ, GLD, USD, USO and TLT. They are tuned to deliver signals in line with the Stock Barometer and we use them only in determining our overall outlook for the market and for pinpointing market reversals. The level, direction, and position to the zero line are keys in these indicators. For example, direction determines mode and a buy signal 'above zero' is more bullish than a buy signal 'below zero'.

Summary of Daily Outlook
We have a Buy Signal, placing us in Buy Mode. We have a key reversal date looming, it makes sense that the market move higher into 9/14 here - further frustrating the bears.
Friday was a fun day for our day trading experiment - as I had never hosted a live day trading session - but the markets set up almost text book per my day trading eBook, we went long just after 10:10am at 44.9 and the QLD traded up to 46.46. Not a bad day at all...
We may try it again in the future. Anyone who buys the book now will get a transcript of the day and the trade. And if we do it again, you'll be on the distribution to participate...
