Re: whip cream

MI screens, mostly momentum-based, were not constructed based on trendless, rabbit-hopping, rotational, huge money-wave moving markets. Hard to predict what any of them are going to do in these current conditions.

Re: OT: Comment on 99 day rule

It is also only bullish because of using a definition of an intra-day high.

If it was a high on close, it is still bearish.

Re: Why hasn't the "last new high" lin

Thank God we can all now stop handwringing over whether the 99 day DBE has been reset or not, as the market barely touched it like a short kid jumping to touch the bottom of the basket. What a relief.
