On December 22, 2015 in his BLOG, focus the DOW, Martin Armstrong wrote this:
“Keep the Power Dry Going into Year-End”
He wrote: “We can see from the Daily Array that the 16 [th] was a turning point that produced the high close. We backed off but held the channel and bearish reversals, and now we have a choppy period with directional changes. So hold on. Keep the power dry.
DAILY ARRAY for the DOW
After reading the entire article, the following is my Opinion on what I believe he wrote:
The Socrates generated Arrays* are indicating that there is no resolution yet and therefore, we have to keep our powder dry until we see the Year-end closing. So, it seems that to wait and see the 2015 Year-end closing and its Direction, before we can determine if we are entering an immediate blast off to the upside for the DOW going into 2017 or if that blast off will take a much longer time and we need to wait for that DOW high going into 2020 rather than at an accelerated pace into 2017.
In any event, we have to understand what is coming at us. ONLY when you and I comprehend the Markets and in this case the DOW, then we can make the decisions as to how to Trade!
Whichever the case might be, once the DOW has retested support then it will go up because of Capital Preservation and Money Flows into US stocks from all over the world. That is, investors and Capital will be going from Bonds into Hard Assets (Real Estate, Art and so on) and also go from Bonds to Shares (the DOW, S&P and NASDAQ). Whereas, there is a shortage of good stocks it may be a slingshot move to the upside in the US Markets going into 2017 but, depending on this 2015 Year-end closing it may be at a slower pace going into 2020.
Although, the year-end closing in the Dow will give us the Direction, Armstrong did say that he expects a change in the trend after March 2016. He has also voiced his Opinion that he feels we probably have a 2 to 2.5 year positive run in the DOW which would probably indicate that there will be an immediate blast off into 2017 rather than the slower route into 2020.
Therefore, it is my believe that once we know the Direction after the Year-end close then based on that Direction, we should buy the US Markets on dips and stay long till 2017.
* The Arrays with its energy readings and reversals and are Place Bets on the markets. The Arrays not only show the Direction for TRADING but, they also forecast the timing. The Arrays are Forecasts that will enable, us to quickly see what Armstrong’s computer models are looking for, such as ideal highs or lows in addition to important changes in TRENDS and VOLATILITY. Although, experienced TRADERS may TRADE on the Arrays, I suggest that the average investor should not attempt to TRADE on the Arrays.

In order to reduce the risk for the average investor when making investment trading decisions, I recommend the Martin Armstrong, Princeton Economics Institute (PEI) Socrates generated Investor Level service.
My Broker/Trader, who has a lifetime of trading experience, and I will subscribe to the professional Trader Level service, when it becomes available and subscribe to several levels of clear Trading Forecasts that the PEI Socrates computer generated Trading Level will provide us. We will be subscribe to trading instruments in the various Markets with a focus on mining (e.g. Gold, Silver, Copper etc.) as well other trading instruments such as Foreign Exchange (FX) plays for example.
During these volatile times, we trust to do better than just SURVIVE and we will take advantage of what we learned over the years and what we obtain from the Socrates Forecasts in order to make as much money as possible for ourselves when Trading.
I will inform my Subscribers who support our Paid-for FDNN letter (see: www.mininginteractive.com) of the Trades we are making based on the Forecasts by Socrates including, the Long and Short positions we will be taking, as well as Buy & Sell Stop Orders (Trading Orders Used in Reports).

I have had some e-mails that stated: “I am going to be all in once Socrates becomes available."
The two words “all in” bother me and I want to dwell on that for a moment to discuss these two words:
I do NOT believe you ever should be “all in”. Yes, I have believed and continue to believe that Socrates can be relied upon but, I will never be “all in” and neither should you.
My investment philosophy is this:
- You should never invest more than you can afford to lose;
- Your investment portfolio should consist of Low/Risk (50%), Medium/Risk (40%) and High/Risk (10%) investments; however, with the help of Socrates Forecasts; although
- I believe that I will opt to increase my High/Risk investments up to 30%;
- I also belief that you should buy low and sell high; and importantly
- you have to take a profit on the way up. Because, stocks never go straight up or straight down and you sometimes may sell too early but, you will have a profit and if you still have faith in the stock you will be able to get back in at a lower price and average down.
My Broker/Traders in Canada and the United States will never advice that you should be “all in” either. They also believe in Portfolio diversification but, they may advice you to take profits.
“You will never go broke taking a profit”
Let me know by e-mail if you want me to send you their coordinates to that you can contact them if you wish. You may decide, which I highly recommend, to open an account with one of them, for Canadian Clients I, recommend using my Canadian Broker/Trader and for US clients my US Broker/Trader Both brokers can trade for offshore clients worldwide.
The reason I keep on repeating “Broker/Trader” is that I want to emphasize the word Trader.
Although, I recommend that you purchase the Socrates Investor Level service, I strongly recommend that you use one of my Broker/Traders or your own expert professional Trader.
My emphasis is on Traders because, if you are as I am busy with other things in your life and you are not an expert Trader then, leave the Trading to the professionals and I will say it again:
“If you are NOT a fulltime Trader then assign your trading to professional Traders”
