The Script

January is looking good so far as the PSE index has taken on the 7,500 level (see Script in the “Year Ahead” analysis above). We could see more initiatives to make headway through 7,500 before January ends.

I like what I’m seeing, and I am sure you do. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We want a solid foundation around 7,000 to 7,500, rather than a fast but weak push through 7,500-8,000. The sooner the bulls realize this, the better for all of us.

It would be interesting to see how the index will perform in the first quarter. Be alert and trade what you see.
