In your opinion, what does this blog need more of?

Here's why you can unsubscribe from your favourite TA

In case you're wondering why your favourite TA has suddenly quit talking about a downward channel/bear market/$SPX 1950 resistance:

That's because $SPX took out 1951 and the SMA(50) yesterday.

Your TA, see, doesn't understand that this past few months of crybaby bullshit was just a cokehead hedge fund reaction to the usual winter slowdown in US GDP, with associated panty-piddle over Janet raising rates because she knows how to find data that predicts unemployment and inflation 6-12 months out.

And now that the Atlanta Fed's 1Q16 GDP prediction is back at 2.5% (to be updated later today), which is above the blue-chip consensus, all of a sudden the "global slowdown" talk is looking stupid and people are buying stocks back.

So you can quit reading TA blogs now.

I especially laugh at the one guy who's even compensated for his dismal past predictions by inventing a funny new sort of dome-line that doesn't exist in any chart book I've ever read. Yup, buddy, I'm sure the S&P 500 will halt at 2000 and the SMA(200) - for two days, like it did at 1950, before going up some more. Good luck beating the S&P index ETF this year like you haven't done for the past 5 years.
