There are few surprises this week due to the strong day on Friday to end the week. Buying opportunities vanished as you might imagine. There is one anomaly (Health) so pay more attention to the percentage changes rather than the X’s and O’s on the right side of the tables.
All major markets moved up significantly this week with the Dow Jones Transportation Average slipping into the over-bought zone with a 70% bullish percentage.
If you purchased several sector ETFs back in mid-September now is the time to set 3% TSLOs on Health, Industrials, Materials, and Technology so as to protect profits. If these higher percentages hold through November, there is a high probability we may have seen the bottom of the 2022 bear market. Only time will tell the story. Friday’s U.S. Equities market ended a very strong week.
In setting the 3% TSLOs, do you recommend basing them on the Asking price rather than the Last price? Doing so might reduce the chance that TSLOs are triggered prematurely.
Lowell Herr says
When setting a TSLO, say 3%, the selling price is then 3% below the price of the security when you set the TSLO. If set when the market is close then the sell price is 3% below the closing price of the ETF. That is my understanding of how it works.
