Stock Market: The Market Index Cliff

I am in the thick of writing the Monthly HGSI Newsletter, but here is my Summary Overview which I hope will encourage you to get a Free Trial of the Software and the Newsletter.  My friend in India who recently got the software is telling all his friends what they are missing, and I can see my friend in Qatar is also cooking up a storm in anticipation of what is to come.


We had an exhilarating three day Seminar, learned a lot from each other and had good fun.

This Month’s Picture shows you the focus I have given you on the Market Index Cliff and described in my most recent three Blog Notes starting on November 7th.  This Month’s Newsletter develops the story around this picture and shows you how we can get the earliest warning that trouble is brewing by understanding the implications of the Woody Indicator:

The $64 question is “Do the Floodgates Open Wide and Panic Sets in or do we get a Big Bounce Play to stem the tide?” So far it has been a drip-drip process down and it is Ugly.

Besides discussing the High and Low Road Scenarios, my theme for this month explains in detail the logic and results for identifying impending Market Cliff Hangers and when to protect your Nest Egg when the signs are more than a passing small correction.

Ron will devote his piece to One Step Scorecard Views, as those attending the Seminar enjoyed when Paul Reiche suggested this was a fruitful way of ferreting for worthwhile candidates. The Round Table discussion is on Tuesday, 20th October at 4.30pm EST, where we will as usual expand on the ideas in the newsletter.

Best Regards,
