Happy Lunar New Year

Written by Donnie Nguyen

The S&P 500 is still out of correction territory for its fourth week in a row. It closed just 1 point higher than last week’s close. And still remains 8.7% below its all-time high set in September.

The daily chart is not looking good. On Lunar New Year’s day (February 5th), the market met resistance at its 200-day moving average.

As I mentioned in my last post, the Market and economy appear strong. But because of the chart, I’m bracing myself for a rough ride.


That being said, I continue to stay the course with my strategy. If we make all-time highs again, I’ll look to take some profits and bring my cash equivalents to about 25% of my portfolio. If the market tanks again, I plan to wait for a 30% decline in the S&P 500 before making more purchases. I’ve already made purchases at 10% and 20% decline levels.

I just checked both of my individual stock portfolios today. One has 18% cash equivalents and the other has 19%.

Is the market getting ready to tank again? Or will we power through to new all-time highs? Let me know what you guys think.
