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.

Last week, I mentioned that several indexes were participating in the 3-week decline half-heartedly. We now know the reason why! On Friday, the rally which started at 2040 has filled a phase projection at 2113 and come to a resistance...
I have endeavored here to give you a short-term and a longer term perspective about the market, primarily through the analysis of SPX charts. But also by suggesting that if two of the primary leading indexes (XLF and XBD) are exhibiting...
While a correction is well underway in the SPX and NYSE, some indices are not as weak and will need to join them for an important decline to take place. On Monday the ECB will start its bond buying program. Also on Monday, AAPL will...
The past week showed low volatility. SPX has been decelerating over the past two weeks and looks ready to start a minor correction. We should know this coming week if that is its intention.
Last week, SPX extended its advance to 2110, but breadth is not supporting the move with the daily A/D oscillator barely moving up and continuing to show negative divergence. Unless this improves (and quickly) the index will not be able...
The indices are mixed. SPX managed to make a new high by a small margin, but DJIA has not. Also some of the leading indexes such as XLF and XBD are beginning to show relative weakness. If this continues and worsens, it will be unlikely...
SPX is at an inflection point! If it does not continue to rally, but extends its Friday decline instead, it could pick-up enough downside momentum to re-test the 1880 low and perhaps even break below the level which has supported it for...
SPX found enough resistance at its previous short-term high of 2064 to put a halt to the strong rally which started at 1988. Friday’s retracement does not look complete and it’s now a question of whether the bears will be able to muster...
The SPX appears to be at the beginning of a long-term distribution process which is forming a top of intermediate proportions. I want to stress the word “appears”, because the various indices are not yet unified in this process. It will...
If we were in a confirmed bear market, it would be easy to characterize last week’s rally as a “bear market rally”, since this is what it looks like. Of course, if we are making a B wave this characterization is correct. At the moment...
