seems like it likes to confirm bottoms with a retest, classic 'W' double bottom.

colder weather in the northeast, snowing in April here.

yeah I subscribe to them also. I dont really pay attention to their recommendations.

I wish the charts had more bars per page, its kinda hard to pick up on the longer term trends.

I'm using metastock also.

I beleive they call that indicator pileing,but useing short systems\stradegy's with over all direction(trendFollow)works. intresting summer corrilation,i was thinking crossing the usual linear weather correlation ,,,u think the low dips are getting higher cause of global warming??
