Author: Cumberland Advisors, Post Date: October 6, 2019

The Cumberland Advisors Week in Review is a recap of news, commentary, and opinion from our team.

Week In Review

These are not revised assessments, and circumstances may have changed in the market from the time of original publication. We also include older commentaries that our editors have determined may be of interest to our audience. Your feedback is always welcome.


In this week’s review, Matt talks about:
-We went out this week within a stone’s throw of where we closed last week
-Lot’s of volatility this week
-We’ve received two buy signals from our Quant Work in the last 6-7 trading sessions
-What we’re seeing day-to-day is real extremes in fear and greed
-While we try to take advantage of that in the short-term in a trading strategy, in the longer term, it’s important to sometimes step back and see what’s really going on.
-Today we’re sharing three charts thanks to our cracker-jack  trader, Shea Slawson, and I’ll talk about them:
1) S&P500 (SPY)
2) DOW (DIA)
3) NASDAQ 100 (QQQ)
-We try not to stay ultra-bullish or ultra-bearish
-We try to see what’s available, see where the risk is, see where the reward is, size our positions appropriately, and take advantage of what the market gives us.
-Please keep the comments and questions coming.
-Email us at or give us a call at (800) 257-7013

Enjoy your weekend and please send us your questions and comments. We thank you for joining us!
