The recent collapse of the markets caught many investors, both novice and pro, by surprise. Yet the warnings signs were clear, prior to the collapse. Investors could have used them to protect their capital as well as profit from the market collapse.
In my Investing Strategy Notes and Market Breadth Indicator daily articles I had discussed the weakness building in the markets back at the end of February and into March. The method I use is simple and has worked for me in every bear market and every correction since I started investing in 1974.
With the NASDAQ and S&P back at their respective 200 day moving average, I thought it was a good time to go over a simple method I use as an early warning system. Many investors who have been with FullyInformed.com will recognize this strategy which I have discussed many times over more than a decade of posting to FullyInformed.com. However I thought it was worthwhile to review it again as we prepare to head into the summer months.
This strategy paper is 2800 words in length and will require 7 pages if printed.
