The main uptrend line is indicated by the solid blue line (last line in the chart above), but we put in a dotted navy blue line for those who would insist that the uptrend line could be drawn through secondary point. Whichever uptrend line you choose, you can see that this point holds true, the greater the deviation, the better the buying opportunity. Look at the chart above; who won the from 1990-2016, the bears or the bulls?. This chart is a clear illustration that the Doctors of Doom only make their money by selling the masses crap they would never dream of using.
The purple dotted line (4th line to the top on the chart) provides a guideline as to future market price action. However, to be conservative, we drew in two lines. The navy blue one (3rd one) indicates that the Dow should easily trade to the 19,500 plus ranges in the not too distant future as long as the trend is up. The 4th line (purple dotted line) suggests that the Dow could trade past 25,000 before this bull market is over. Note that we base everything we do on what in-house trend indicator: all other indicators even if some message appeared in the sky stating that the Dow would crash tomorrow take on a secondary role.
Do not deploy all your funds into the market when the bull is mature. Wait for a strong pullback before getting in. Crowd psychology states that you should be wary when the masses are happy and vice versa. You have to have stops in place, just in case the trade does not work out. As the profits start to roll in, take some money of the table and put it aside for future opportunities; for example, purchasing stock after a strong correction.
The markets have pulled back strongly; fear is in the air, and many strong companies are trading at attractive levels. At this point, the ball is in your court, you could compile a list of strong companies you always wanted to get into and then slowly commit some funds to them. Or you could sit down and do what you have been doing all along and hope for a different outcome. If the strategy did not work before, doing the same thing and hoping for a new outcome could be construed as being insane.
Every crisis offers you extra desired power.
