The market continued to gain strength on Wednesday. The GMI is at 5 for the first time since October 17. Another strong day on Thursday could trigger a GMI buy signal. IBD still sees the market in an up-trend. It has taken over 40 years of trading to realize I must trust the indicators and not my emotions. It is scary to buy into a new up-trend because, by definition, it often occurs after a down-trend. We all tend to drive with our hands on the rear view mirror. The past colors our perceptions. So I grit my teeth and go long, but gradually, and in stages. If this new up-trend lasts for five days, I will pyramid up. Too many times after a long up-trend, I find that I would have done great had I just begun buying index ETF’s early in the up-trend. I am doing so now, but will exit quickly if the new up-trend fails.
