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.

Since the October rally, SPX has been trading in a broad congestion pattern with an upward slant. Any seasoned technical analyst will tell you that this is potentially a bearish formation which, most of the time, signals the end of an...
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...
