… “everything looks like a nail” is the old saying. Harmonic patterns aren’t too hard to spot.

VIX just completed a very well-formed bearish Gartley Pattern [see last post – Are We There Yet?], indicating it MIGHT have topped at 19.09.

Posts from Wednesday and Thursday are slowly coming back on line. I’ll give it till tomorrow morning, then try to repost what hasn’t reappeared. Lots of action in … continue reading →
