It can feel like an eternity waiting for a specific move to play out.  For the equity markets, the first turn off the highs is the first sign of a potential topping motion in this Daily and Investor Cycle.  It’s a game of patience in the end, especially when you’re waiting for a particular move to unfold.

Ultimately, I do not know if the markets have topped.  I honestly have no idea if the bear market in equities will take control or if we are about to see an easy money inspired bull market rally.   The fact is, nobody knows, do not let anybody convince you otherwise.  The markets have been a difficult read these past 18 months and there is no confirmed trend.  I am not here to make wild predictions to excite members, my role is only to discuss and highlight what are plausible possibilities along with a plan on how I aim to capitalize on them.

On the Daily Cycle chart, the S&P peaked on Day 9 and is now clearly seeking the Half Cycle Low point of what is normally a 40-day Cycle event.   If the Investor Cycle topped and the bear market is to return, then that Day 9 high should remain the high and the rally out of this looming HCL should fail to make new highs.  Under the bear market scenario, we should see a failed rally become the right shoulder of a short-term head and shoulders pattern, giving way to a drop of around 100 points into the next DCL.

 

4-30 equities daily

One of my preferred secondary indicators is sentimentrader.com smart money index.  It possibly confirms my bear market scenario as the market appears to be at a topping point.  Historically, it is a leading indicator, with a bottom in the smart money index preceding a market top by a few weeks.  Although not a long-term indicator, it is currently showing us that an Investor Cycle top is likely at this point.

After a successful event, everyone is riding high on the moment and it shows on your staff members' faces as well as in the quality of their work.

The beautiful thing about these messages as simple or short as they isthat they work in such a huge way. Here are the reasons why inspirational quotes for business are a great solution for workplace motivation.

Buying expired domains is much easier today thanks to the availability of numerous listing sites and great resources to help you research a domain. However, if you are interested in a domain name solely for traffic, there are a couple of things you need to look at. This post looks at the top metrics you should never overlook when considering a dropped domain name.

Google Page Rank

When it comes to the evaluation of a domain’s metrics, Google is definitely the oldest and the most widely used option. The metrics here are based on a scale of 0 to 10 where PR3 is 10 times better than PR2 and so on. You check the page rank of a domain name simply by installing Google Toolbar.

All in all, although it is still in use, Google Page Rank is not the best platform you should use to check the metrics of a domain. The algorithm hasn’t been updated in months as Google is focusing on other aspects.

Moz Metrics

Considering Google Page Rank has been dormant, Moz.com is one of the best solutions you can use to check the metrics of a dropped domain. Moz will give you detailed information regarding the backlinks of a domain. It will help you know how many backlinks a domain has as well as which ones is passing traffic to it.

Second, Moz will help know the domain authority of a domain on a scale of 0 to 100. This helps know the ranking of a site in Google’s SERPs. You can use this tool to compare different dropped domains with traffic. Moz Rank will help you know if a domain is of good quality. This is a great feature considering Moz’s index is updated every four weeks.

As a side tip; if a domain has a high PR but a lower Moz, you should think twice before considering it. It might be a scam.

Majestic SEO Metrics

You can find this service via majestic.com or majesticseo.com. This company has the largest commercial link intelligence database with their crawlers covering over a billion URLs daily. (more…)
