BarroMetrics Views: A Review
I have been locked out of my office since Friday afternoon when there was an overflow on the 9th floor that flooded the lifts. So far, no repairs yet. Only in HK. Of course, I could take the stairs; but I’ll give a miss to walking up and down to my 21st floor.

BarroMetrics Views: S&P - Topping?
Back from Switzerland - in time to see the S&P breakout to new highs accompanied by below average volume and range - a condition that, until QE, I’d be calling for a change in trend, from up to down. In this QE era, you may hazard a guess - you may suggest […]
BarroMetrics Views: Geneva, S&P & USD
What does Geneva have to do with the S&P and USD?
Absolutely nothing! Just happens that I am writing this in Geneva. I must say I prefer the trading hours to those in HK. Awaking at 6:00 or 7:00 am means I have missed the Asian time zone’s trading ( or at […]
BarroMetrics Views: QE Ended?
Probably not because the markets know that while the US$85B per month has stopped, the funds created by QE are being reinvested and that is still being made available. In addition, judging from what the Yellen has said, it may be end 2015, before we will see a rate rise.
In addition, for FX […]
BarroMetrics Views: S&P - At Crossroads II
A short notice: I’ll be away in Switzerland until Nov 12 so I expect my blogs and newsletter to be affected. My apologies for the intermittent publication till then.
This was written prior to the price action of Oct 31, so it will be interesting to see how the S&P behaves tonight. But, based on the response […]
BarroMetrics Views: Vpatterns
In S&P - At Crossroads, I spoke about a possible V-Bottom in the S&P. I received a few questions from Barros Swing students about my comments.
My fault - apologies. I ought to have made clear that I was speaking about V-Bottoms in the way traditional technical analysis uses the term (See Bulkowski V-bottom) - rather than […]
BarroMetrics Views: S&P - At Crossroads
When the S&P first gave an 18-day Upthrust Change in Trend pattern, I wrote that the minimum target would be the 13-week line turn price. The 13-w line turned down in the week ending Oct 17 at 1874 (Figure 1). It then gave a reversal bar the following week, and […]
BarroMetrics Views: A Whiff of QE4
Just a whiff of QE$ was enough to cause the S&P, on Friday, to close higher with a relatively strong looking candlestick (Figure 1). But, the Market Delta Footprint charts showed that beneath the surface all was not as rosy. Unfortunately I am unable to show you the Market Delta […]
BarroMetrics Views: S&P 2014-10-13 III
A quickie because I am en route to Beijing. No blog tomorrow, blog resumes Monday.
There was a suggestion last night that Yellen would launch QE4 (Economic News 2014-10-16) despite Fisher’s denial (Fox News 2014-10-16). [Remember that Fisher is one of the two hawks on the FED, the other is Plosser. Both retire […]
BarroMetrics Views: S&P 2014-10-13 II
Last night, in no uncertain terms, the S&P negated the bullish scenario I had postulated in yesterday’s blog. This leaves only the bearish scenario. Figure 1 shows the price action.
It is now possible there will be a bounce to the 1939 to 1951 VAH before heading South; but then again, the S&P could just […]
