The markets continue to set up very bullish here. Here's our view.
Welcome to Lynn T's 1-2-3 PLUS Alert. To try my Partial Leverage Utilization System, click here.
They say go away in May - that may just be the exact opposite thing you should do.
The way I see the markets setting up here is very bullish. When markets hang up near highs, and don't consolidate too deeply, then they're strong. Plain and simple. Price action is key, news is secondary.
When we decide our leverage position, we have 3 key elements. Currently, we're 2/3 bullish because the markets have held up here. And our last component could trigger next week, meaning we'd move to 3/3 bullish.
What's that mean to you?
Well, it can mean being fully invested, if you don't apply leverage. The name of this service is 1-2-3 Plus - and the Plus means how you apply leverage. For example, in a non leveraged account, you would simply invest 33.3% of your total account value on our position weighting.
However, on a leveraged account, first you pick the leverage level. Say you pick a 2x fund below. Well, 1/3 would be 66%, 2/3 would be 132% and 3/3 would be fully invested - or 200%.
So right now our weighting is 2/3 - using leverage would have you at 132% of the markets return.
So where are we now?
We're not planning on changing a thing. However, we are close to a secondary long term buy signal, which would be great (we're still in our last one). If we get that, that would be a signal to put more money to work.
Maintain 2/3 bullish position (see weighting below).
Current Weighting Suggestion:
2/3 in Bullish Leverage
Long Term Investor Buy Signal Alert
Over the past several years, this indicator has predicted several 100-point or more moves in the S&P. There are only 2 to 3 of these signals every year, so they're worth paying attention to. This is an ideal signal for investors to put cash to work following a down move in the market.
There is no long term investor buy signal at present. We're still working off the 9/13/2010 signal and it's about as good as it gets. To be honest, I was susprised at this last bottom that the indicator didn't get more bearish and give us a signal. We'll be patient here. These signals offer great opportunity.
