ShepWave SECOND Update for Monday Published. MORE GOVT SHAKEUPS!
Posted: 3/16/2018 22:49 EST

The Second ShepWave Update for Monday has been published.

The Regular Update, showing daily time frame analysis and triggers for the major U.S. equity indexes; Crude Oil: GOLD; and the VIX.

For those of you following along with ShepWave trading signals--you profited from the sudden and sharp bearish move in stocks--and even caught the aggressive BUY SIGNALS given on Friday, February 9th. 

Very important week for traders and investors coming up!

The markets are moving quickly--sometimes giving the trade set-ups just before a key signal  such as was given in the Regular Update for Thursday of two weeks ago, published on 3/7/2018--showing the potential bullish wedge pattern.  IT HAPPENED

All traders need to be aware of these patterns as they unfold.  If you missed that opportunity then don't miss the next one. 

See the wedge pattern in Crude Oil and the potential aggressive plays coming up in the VIX.

IMPORTANT: See the wedge patterns in the major U.S. equity indexes below--newly identified in the Dow Industrials index. 

ALSO-- read the notes in the NDX and refer to the intra day note from last Friday given in the 15 min QQQ chart.

ALSO--important technicals and possible SINGLE-BREAK-TRIGGERS in Crude Oil, GOLD, and even in the VIX.

ShepWave analysis is always building upon previous technicals and analysis.

As a note of caution: There are a lot of analysts who try to predict wave counts. Please be careful of doing that. It is good to understand the dynamics and underlying principles of Elliott Wave Theory but in the labeling of wave patterns, remember that no pattern or wave count is official until the next wave series begins. So many otherwise really good analysts seem not to understand this simple concept with regards to Elliott Wave Theory.

Proper Technical Analysis is a Science, an Art, and a Discipline:

It is a SCIENCE in that we identify and analyze key technical occurrences and correlations. These lead to patterns which can be used to identify probable future directional movements.

It is an ART because there are times when the strict definitions and observations have variable outcomes. The efficient market analyst has the history and experience to put together all of the contextual observations--which go beyond the bounds of the immediate contextual evidence--to find the most probable future pattern. Note most analysts do not actually provide future probability in the same way ShepWave does.

It is a DISCIPLINE in that we have guidelines to use to minimize any possibility of the market(s) going against our prescribed direction. This is also one of the aspects that most analysts do not designate clearly. This can make the difference between a consistently profitable trader/investor or one who loses consistently.

The Special ShepWave Update for Monday has been published. This update shows the weekly time frame analysis for the major U.S. equity indexes as well as for Crude Oil and for Gold.

A lot of people have been trying to call the top in the major U.S. equity indexes for years now--only to fail attempt after attempt. Please read the notes in this update carefully. Remember, any bullish (or bearish)  implications we are seeing on the weekly time frame for equities need to be kept in context when considering shorter term trades.

Look at the analysis  for CRUDE OIL.

Look at the recent analysis in GOLD. NEW pattern for GOLD!

We hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
