Even though the NASDAQ Composite looks as if it may just miss its threshold level of 1.4% as of this writing (2 minutes to the close), with sufficient action from leading stocks and QE2 in force, the model is now on a buy signal.
QE2 (quantitative easing) continues to be a powerful force, even more so now after the crisis in Japan. Since quantitative easing has been a significant factor since March 2009 when it began, it factors into the model.
Tentative failsafe is at 2697 on the NASDAQ Composite, or about -1.4% from where it is currently trading. Note, a failsafe level can adjust in small ways with new market data, so please do not act on this failsafe level until it is confirmed by an email.
