Friday, August 11, 2017

As of Friday, August 11, 2017 at the close of trading EquitySurge™ has continued a strong sell signal for USA equities.

This week the market showed some vulnerability and significant volatility.

We have been very early in our skepticism of the rally from the election last November, and we’ve had to endure what turned out to be a strong run up in stocks since then. However unless you sell your long equity positions and lock in your gains before a major sell-off, then the gains are just numbers on a page, especially if the market declines significantly off those highs.

Here are some charts to get you thinking about just what may be at stake:
