Stock Index Tracking

All back to positive. Current through 2/12 close.

Bold means a change from prior day.

The advance/decline line model moved to cash 1/31. Updated through 2/12. In 2019, the model was up 16.48% on the S&P 500 and this year is up 2.08%. 5 buy signals and 4 cash signals in 2019. Current buy signal ended with a gain of 9.83% and began on 10/17/19. We failed to get back to a buy this morning and now the earliest it could come would be Friday morning if we can keep the 10DMA above +200.
