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.

Topping and declining cycles are putting pressure on the major indexes, some of which are already seriously challenging an important trend line from the February low. If that trend line fails, sellers should appear and drive prices lower...
While SPX has resisted entering into a more serious correction, there is evidence that, unless it can make a new high over the next week or so, the corrective pattern will become steeper as intermediate cycles drive prices lower over the...
SPX quickly put a halt to its correction from 2193 -- and built a base while it waited for the next FOMC meeting. After the decision was announced, it broke out of its base and met its first phase target, which took it back to the top of...
The short-term technical picture is a mixture of positives and negatives. We must wait for a clearer indication of the market’s intention - and this should come over the next few days.
The topping pattern that the market had been making for the past eight weeks strongly suggested that it was preparing for correction as we approached a time slot when cycles and historical patterns made it even more likely. What was not...
Every week SPX comes a little closer to making a reversal which could start a correction of intermediate nature by retracing a good portion of its rally from 1992. While this may not happen tomorrow, we are in a cyclical time frame which...
Early on Friday, SPX made a pretense at breaking out of its consolidation, but it did not follow through and had an indecisive close. Furthermore, neither the DJIA nor the TRAN made any attempt to join it in starting a new uptrend. Other...
SPX has reached its stated short-term projection. This should bring about a reversal and the second correction since the 1992 low. There is a very slight possibility that the pattern it is currently making will turn out to be a...
Last week, SPX broke out to a new all-time high and extended its move 34 points beyond. Since that level corresponds to a short-term projection, a minor top could develop and bring about the second correction of the uptrend which started...
Last week, SPX traded within inches of its all-time high. After a much better than expected jobs report on Friday, bulls took control and drove the SPX up to 2131.71, only 3 points from the 5/15 high of 2134.72. Some profit-taking...
