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.

The rally from 2604 is deemed to be a countertrend rally, or a secondary reaction to the primary trend which is now down. As of a week ago Friday, the countertrend had rallied to 2750 and was in the process of pulling back before moving...
“…it is becoming increasingly likely that the initial low of the bear market will occur at about 2600.” That forecast published in last week’s letter turned out to be correct, as SPX made a climactic low at 2604 and immediately rallied 70...
The first wave of this correction started at 2941 and stopped at 2710, for a decline of 231 points.  After a brief rally to 2817, the second wave started.  At the time, I suggested that the trend could be taking the shape of an a-b-c ...
After declining from 2940 to 2711 in its biggest correction since January, SPX rallied to 2817 before reversing and closing the week at 2768 -- all this in the span of three weeks.  The question which is on every analyst’s mind is:  “Has...
When I warned to be cautious about the September/October seasonal weakness, I had no idea that it would turn into a 229-point debacle for the SPX.  Although it was 110-points short of the January plunge, the timing of this selling spell is...
It’s not always like clock-work, but the September-October period always deserves caution as we approach it. This year, the beginning of the correction came a little late for the major indices, waiting until early October to get started...
Since early this month, I have mentioned that we were entering the weakest season of the year -- one which is often characterized by a correction, sometimes severe.  Below is a chart of the DJIA seasonality. 
Last week belonged to the laggard indexes.  DJIA and NYA went on a tear with the former rising 739 points from last Monday’s low, and (finally) making a new all-time high in the process.  NYA was also strong, but did not make a new high. ...
After reaching a new all-time high of 2916 on 8/29, SPX started to correct until it came to a good support level which was further buttressed by an important short-term trend line (from 2700).  The decline merely skimmed the surface of...
Last week was marked by a sharp correction in NDX, while DJIA held up well.  SPX, which is a kind of hybrid of the two, logged in six consecutive days of decline spanning a total of almost 50 points.  The last two days entered a zone of...
