The Real Secret for Successful Trading

DOW Breaths FIRE on Dow 20k, Stock Market New All Time Trading High 19,999.63

Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017 Jan 07, 2017 - 05:21 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

The Dow after a 2 week holiday break on Friday finally re-attempted to break above the stocks bull market mega-milestone of 20,000, by literally breathing fire on 20k for the whole of the trading session, trading to a high of 19,999.63 early in the session, retreating to close at 19,963. The Dow literally cannot get much closer than reaching 20k than 19,999.63 without actually touching it! A remarkable trading session taking the Dow within a cats whisker of achieving 20k.


Whilst those who say Dow 20k does not matter, you know the clueless morons that print garbage in the mainstream press who clearly have missed the WHOLE bull run run from Dow 6470 to Dow 20k! That is a 200% bull run from the bear market bottom. So yes, if your a moron (journalist) then 20k does not mean anything. But if you are one of the few who has actually ridden the bull from its outset, that's right since March 2009 (15 Mar 2009 - Stealth Bull Market Follows Stocks Bear Market Bottom at Dow 6,470) then it means a hell of a lot! As I elaborated in my recent video. It's literally a WAKE UP CALL! A time for hyperventilating, a time for going into maximum overdrive, and not a time for publishing lazy ass commentary that calls itself the mainstream press, or worse the BlogosFear that had been betting against the bull market right upto Dow 20k! My words are strong because this is what Dow 20k does to someone who has ridden the bull whilst hanging on with both hands for near 8 years!

The Trump stock market rally that no one saw coming, after all it was taken as granted by the consensus and the blogosfear that Trump election win would be disastrous for stocks. However, instead of crashing downwards the stock market literally crashed upwards, right upto virtually touching 20k before taking its holiday pause. This has had a devastating impact on the perma-wrong crowd, the perma-bears who were already punch drunk from having been wrong or near 8 years! And finally started to throw in towel and TURN BULLISH AT THE TOP!

Yes that's right many of those who have been consistently WRONG for the past 8 years have turned bullish!. However, no matter how tempted I am to do so, I do not see it as my job to ridicule fools, for the supply of fools is infinite so it will be just a waste of my time, instead I want to know what to do with my wealth going forward and so on an earlier day when the Dow virtually touched 20k I set out my views of what I expected to transpire during much of 2017 and what I intend on doing in advance of in my following video, which I posted ahead of my forthcoming in-depth analysis and detailed trend forecast that I aim to complete and post within the next couple of weeks -

Following which I focused on completing my key mega-trend analysis of the Trump Presidency that I intend on turning into a 14 part video series - The Trump Rest - War with China

With the 1st video being my immediate post US election take of why Trump won:

And part 2 "The Putin Doctrine" due for imminent completion.

However, you can read the 3 pieces of in-depth analysis that the series is based on right now, though the videos represent updated content at the time of upload, so do ensure you are subscribed to my youtube channel.

  • 04 Jan 2017 - CIA Planning Rogue President Donald Trump Assassination? Elites "Manchurian Candidate" Plan B
  • 28 Dec 2016 - The Trump Reset, US Empire's Coming Economic, Cyber and Military War With China (2/2)
  • 27 Dec 2016 - The Trump Reset - Regime Change, Russia the Over Hyped Fake News SuperPower (Part1)

  • Ensure you are subscribed to my always free newsletter and youtube channel for forthcoming analysis and detailed trend forecasts aimed at capitalising on Trumps Coming War on China amongst other mega-trend drivers and be very careful listening to the poop that passes for stock market commentary because I can clearly see a lot of investors are going to get very badly burned! VERY BADLY BURNED! This is definitely not the time for paying attention to the clueless mainstream financial press!

    Trump elected

    Trump and those elected by him for his government are all establishment. The populist message is an electoral trick. He will finish his mandate without problems.

    Agree, there is a lot of poop 💩 or Financial Fake News, aka misinformation, in the media.

    My hypothesis:

    Looks like treasuries will be bottoming early this year with gold, and stocks will peak about the same time and go sideways. Oil and dollar will be bouncing sideways in a trading range, which will resolve to the upside for the dollar and downside for oil.

    I look forward to reading your articles
