View the market as you would view an oil painting

The up-trend signals have been very clear in the last 18 months, see figure below, the S&P 500 index chart with AbleTrend buy/sell signals. The historical high close of last week is a new confirmation of the up-trend. However, some traders told us the markets were very choppy and were hard to trade. In fact, in trading you should not focus on the small spots, you must have a whole picture of the market moves – it’s going up or down. Just like seeing an oil painting, you must view it from a relative far distance. Therefore, it’s helpful to use AbleTrend weekly charts to guide for trading. When you see clearly the markets are in the up-trend, trading became easier. We may simply buy at Sweet Spots.
