The State of the Market

Join us as we kick off the New Year with our on line SMT format.   Our first meeting of the year will kick off with a double dose of market analysis.  Tom Beckman, SMT Member, will begin the evening with a Stock Market Update: What are the best performing indicators, and where we are now in the over-/under/valued cycle, breadth indicators, and gauging the impact of news on the market.
Our Second presenter is Dennis A. Kranyak, SMT President.  Dennis will also review the state of the market, but based on his eight charts that he looks at to determine market state and direction.  He will go into detail regarding how some of his indicators are constructed, in particular his Score Chart (available at UnRulyDog.com) to see if we are overbought, oversold or in a state where the market can go higher or lower.
Dennis will also cover one of his recent option trades, and why using a chart helped him both enter and exit the trade.
Lastly, Dennis will provide an update to his AIM system (Automatic Investment Management), along with a primer for those that are new to AIM.   AIM is a longer term investment approach that requires very little time on the part of the investor (5 minutes per month).  Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

If you would like to attend on line meeting via zoom, please send Dennis an email (UnrulyDog@unrulydog.com) so that he can put you on the email notification for list for the zoom (on line) meeting.  You will need to be familiar with Zoom before the meeting, so please log on to Zoom and download any special apps you may need for your browser.  Dennis will send out an email with the on line meeting link about 30 minutes prior to the start of the meeting.  The on line meeting will be open to Non SMT members.   Email Dennis if you have any questions prior to the meeting.

Social options:   Several members have expressed the desire to meet in a group to attend the meeting.  If you are interested in hosting a group, either at a private home or a more public facility, please email Dennis at unrulydog@unrulydog.com and state your location.  Your email will then be listed on the SMT web site as a point of contact (POC) to attend a group meeting for the SMT on line meeting.
