Where the Stock Market Is Today

Do What the Market is Doing
The Stock Market moves in a price path of uptrend and downtrend which are governed by complex dynamics of news, economic growth reports, manipulation, fear and greed. When the uptrend has won, the market will continue being bullish until cumulative market dynamics are provided in sufficient quantity for the supply and demand to go past the equilibrium line, otherwise the market will continue with the uptrend. The opposite is also true of the downtrend.
