Charts Show Market Set Up For Santa Claus Rally and Rockin’ New Year

Oh boy, bears are not going to like this setup. It’s bad. Really bad.

The 10-12 month cycle continues to trend upward against its supposed cyclical down phase. What happens when the next up phase starts?

Short Term Chart Picks – Trailing and fixed stops took out 2 shorts and one long last week. That left 7 open picks on Friday. I’m closing out one of them as of Monday’s opening price.

Including both the closed and open picks, the theoretical average gain (100% cash, no margin, no options) was +4.3% with an average holding period of 11 calendar days. This week I have 6 new picks, 5 of which are buys. Only one is a short. This will leave the list at an extremely lopsided 11 longs and one short.

Scary.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish LiquidityTrader.com, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.
