The SPX declined 5.90 points yesterday to close at 1698.67. TOT daily traders went 300% long on the opening and took profits at SPX 1700.
Since initiation of the Turov on Timing service on September 30, 1993, our daily trader recommendations have gained 13485.13 cumulative SPX points, compared to a gain of 1239.74 points in the index itself over the same period. That’s a ratio of 10.88 to one.
(The commentary in this paragraph last updated June 28, 2013) The super long term perspective for the stock market remains bearish (as it has been since January 2000 after having been bullish for over 25 years, from December 1974 until then). I continue to expect the market to suffer more pain before the primary bear market is over, some years in the future.
(The commentary in this paragraph last updated September 25, 2013) The Intermediate Term Model remains bullish. The odds are that the recent decline from the highs is over or about over, and the market will challenge those highs sooner rather than later.
On yesterday’s hotline, I said, “SPX is down 33 points over the past five sessions. I expect it to recover about a third or so of that decline today.” When it was up 11 points yesterday, I issued an intraday message recommending locking in most of that gain.
Today is the penultimate trading day of September, and that does make a difference. TOT daily traders are advised to go 300% long at SPX 1700 stop or at the market at 9:40, whichever comes first. Once you go long, use a one percent protective sell stop on the position.
Thanks for the opportunity to be of service, and I’ll email you again later today.
