This proxy for T-Bonds has quietly slipped into no man’s land with the recent breach of December’s bombed-out lows near 116.80. Even before this occurred, TLT looked like a good bet to fall to at least 111.97, the midpoint Hidden Pivot...
RINF is the symbol for an ETF trading vehicle that tracks inflation expectations. This is of more than passing interest to me, since I’ve been a hard-core deflationist and written on the topic for more than 30 years. RINF has yet to break...
Bulls and bears duked it out Monday with no clear winner, but I give the latter a small edge for now because buyers were able to recoup only half of the 14-point drop that began the day.  We are in any event using a bigger-picture...
The rally pattern shown with a Hidden Pivot target at 18.26 was so clear and compelling that we should assume that because the futures exceeded it decisively, they have sufficient energy for another leg up once the current correction has...

In testimony before Congress this week, Yellen aggressively talked the Fed’s book, asserting that the U.S. economy looks so hunky-dory these days that the rate hikes she keeps promising are absolutely, definitely, positively coming. Let’s...

The futures appear headed to the 16.580 target shown. I posted this Hidden Pivot support in the chat room Thursday morning, but it was probably of little help to traders because of the downtrend’s rabid demeanor. I am not suggesting bottom...
I had proffered a 2324.00 Hidden Pivot here yesterday as a swing-for-the-fence number, but during this morning’s weekly tutorial session — attended by a record 30 webinar grads! — we were able to identify a new and even more ambitious...
