Andre Gratian

When Andre Gratian was a stock broker years ago, a friend introduced him to technical analysis of the market. Consequently, it is not an exaggeration to say that Andre fell in love with this approach! Ever since then, it has become an increasingly important part of his professional life. Gratian has studied the works of Wyckoff, Edwards & Magee, Edward J. Dewey (cycles) and many others. However, one of my most profitable undertaking has probably been to study Point & Figure charting, which he finds invaluable in analyzing stocks and indices. If he were restricted to one methodology, this is the one that he would choose. This well-rounded background has given him what he feels to be a special insight into the stock market, facilitating the recognition of meaningful patterns and the ‘turning points’ in all trends, whether they be short or long term.  Andre feels very comfortable discussing the stock market and passing on meaningful information to others. His subscribers include individuals and money managers throughout the world. Moreover, his Newsletters are currently published on several financial sites, here and abroad.

With the mounting evidence against prolonging this uptrend much farther, it is increasingly risky to remain bullish on the market until it has had a solid correction. By at least one measure, this could turn out to be a substantial one,...
It is unclear what the market is doing structure-wise. Perhaps we are still in wave B of 4, or perhaps the pattern is evolving into something else. However, there is convincing evidence that we are quickly approaching another market top...
The market action of the past two weeks has confirmed that SPX is currently in primary wave IV of the bull market. It is also likely that wave IV is evolving into an A-B-C corrective pattern, and that wave A has probably been completed at...
Friday’s rally in the strongest indices has created a cloud of uncertainty as to whether or not the SPX has started an intermediate decline. However, the strong rally was not shared by the weaker indices, some of which even failed to...
Last week, it was evident that SPX found sellers as soon as it posted a new high. This resulted in an attempt at starting a correction but it, too, suffered the same fate in reverse. If Friday’s rally runs into the same problem when the...
Evidence is mounting that SPX is coming to another inflection point. The warning signs are detailed in the Market Overview section (above). These, and the fact that September is notorious for being the weakest month of the year, combine...
SPX had a good rally after meeting its stated downside target. Last week’s behavior -- which found strong overhead resistance exactly where it should have -- has brought an aura of uncertainty about what comes next. At the very least,...
