NFTRH+; if you would short…

The title of the update references ‘if’ you would short, because even if the market is going bearish, cash is position. Working against the short/bearish view is contrary bullish sentiment (over-bearish), the fact that an alarming news event is driving some of it and the simple fact that historically at least (last 3 instances), stocks don’t top into real bear markets until many months after … Continue reading NFTRH+; if you would short…

The keys to exiting the correction are the SMA 50 and October high. GLD filled last week’s gap down and has another gap just above.
