In addition to the index charts, I often post for my subscribers the private, proprietary charts and indicators that I’ve developed over the years. Above is one of my most prized possessions – The Alphahorn Bull Market/Bear Market Indicator. Those of you who have followed me for over the years know that I spend a good deal of time developing proprietary indicators for a variety of time frames. This is my favorite long term indicator. The red and green lines on the chart indicate the long term trend for the market. When the green line is above the red line as it was from March 2009 until early July 2011, the BULLs are in control, but when the red line crosses over the green line, then the BEAR is on. As you can see, it’s not prone to whipsaws and was not swayed by any of the corrections of this 2 1/2 year bull market. But, the Bull/Bear indicator has signaled the winds have changed and the trend for the foreseeable future is down.
Oh and in case you’re curious how it has performed over the long haul, here’s a look at it’s performance since I developed it back in late 2003; how does it compare to your predictions for market tops and bottoms? What would you pay for this indicator? Sorry, it’s not for sale, at least I haven’t heard an offer that makes it for sale. But, you can have access to it for just $89 month, new subscribers always welcomed!
