Measured Moves

August 7th, 2017

The S&P 500 has been in a trading range of 2484-2459 since 7/27/2017. The volume has been lower during this basing time which is healthy for the markets. The chart below shows the up move starting on 7/6/2017 was a 3.2% move higher, and the S&P 500 has been trading sideways since the moved stopped on 7/19/2017. So, if the markets break out from the current base, we could potentially see another move higher of 3.2%. Typical when the index moves higher and forms a base the next move higher is, often, the same percent move as the first up move.

 

  1. What does this mean for your portfolio? We are trading the minor moves in the trading ranges to help add more growth to the portfolios. If we do see a break out to new highs, we will begin to hold stocks longer during the potential new higher move in the index.
