WHAT DOES THE MARKET WANT TO DO?

Today the markets traded below the narrow range listed below. For a while, all the markets traded below the January low, but recover by the market close to  challenge the January highs.  Which one will prevail? Stay tuned.

It is time for the market to tell us what to do. See the chart below:  For instance, if the Dow breaks above 17,400 and then makes new highs above 18,086, it would appear that my Lone Bear scenario is either wrong or delayed. However, if the Dow breaks below 17,147 and then breaks below the December low of 17,069 my Bearish scenario would be on track for the Lone Bear Letter! It is the same with reading the NASDAQ and S&P.
