Short-Term & Long-Term Trends for the NASDAQ Composite
The NASDAQ Composite has seen some wild action over the last couple of months. From a precipitous fall ending on Christmas eve to a rally that just won't quit.
Back in October 2018 I started sounding the warning horns that a long-term correction was probable.
