The Market Systems' Newsletter was published for 12 years (1987 to 1999).
The Newsletter provided forecast turning point dates for 
 both short-term turning point dates and intermediate-term trends.

Some brief excerpts from our Newsletters
1995 - 1999

MARCH 17, 1999 
MUTUAL FUNDS 
"The S&P500 has now traded above the trading range which is either very bullish or a bull trap. Therefore, we will now use a 5% trailing stop to protect profits."


FEBRUARY 16, 1999
MUTUAL FUNDS 
"The timing for the Stock Market highs before the Recession is often 12 to 18 months prior to the event. Therefore, we are now recommending that long-term investors take profits on 50% of all long positions. We will continue to use the 5% trailing-stop strategy on the remaining 50%..."

"The Market did have a strong blow-off rally as forecast, with the final closing highs on July 17th, and an intraday high on July 20th. We have had a good correction into October, 1998."

"In our November 6, 1998 Newsletter we recommended going long the Market for the intermediate-term using a 10% trailing stop." In our January, 1999 Newsletter we moved the stop up to 1186.50, locking in a 5% profit basis the S&P500. We will maintain the current long position with the stop at 1186.50."


JANUARY 13, 1999
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We will now move the stop up to 1186.50, locking in a 5% profit basis the S&P500."


DECEMBER 8, 1998
MUTUAL FUNDS
"In our November 6, 1998 Newsletter we stated, "With the Fed lowering interest rates we now expect higher prices, and perhaps new highs. We are now recommending going long the Market for the intermediate-term and also using a 10% trailing stop."
"We will now move the stop up to break-even at 1130.20 basis the S&P500."


NOVEMBER 6, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"The Market did have a strong blow-off rally as forecast, with the final closing highs on July 17th, with an intraday high on July 20th. We have had a good correction into October. With the Fed lowering interest rates we now expect higher prices, and perhaps new highs. We are now recommending going long the Market for the intermediate-term and also using a 10% trailing stop."


OCTOBER 5, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We are still Bearish on the Market for October, and as we stated in our July Newsletter we believe that we have now entered into a Bear Market." 

"For the short-term, we don't see any sustained positive activity until late October and early November."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM TRADING STRATEGY
"The best Turning Points or High Energy Dates for short-term Traders occur on October 7th, 9th, 23rd, and, November 6th."


AUGUST 20, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"As it turned out, the Market did have a strong blow-off rally with the final closing high on July 17th, with an intraday high on July 20th. Those who followed our advice to take profits on July 1st generated a nice 19.22% profit from our long position taken on December 15, 1997."


JULY 1, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"Therefore, we are now recommending that long-term investors take profits on 50% on all long positions. We will continue to use the 5% trailing stop strategy on the remaining 50% as we could have one more blow-off rally into August."


MAY 25, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"At this time we continue to make new highs, therefore, we will continue to use the 5% trailing stop strategy to lock in additional profits. Continue moving the stop up 5% below the closing new highs."


MARCH 5, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"At this time we have broken-out to new highs, therefore, we will now use a 5% trailing stop strategy to lock in profits. Thus, the stop-loss will periodically be moved up to the level which equals 5% below the closing high on the S&P500."


JANUARY 17, 1998 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We recommended re-entering the Market on the long side in our December, 1997 Newsletter for intermediate and long term investors."


DECEMBER 15, 1997 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"Higher stock prices would be expected for the next two months, therefore, we are now recommending re-entering the Market on the long side for intermediate and long-term investors. Stops should be placed just below the October 1997 lows at 850 on the S&P500 Cash Index, and 6970 on the Dow Jones Average."


NOVEMBER 13, 1997 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"With low interest rates and commodity prices stable, increased inflation is not likely in the near future. Therefore, higher stock prices are highly likely by the end of next year. For now, we will stand aside until our next major turning point date on December 16th."


AUGUST 27, 1997 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"In our last Newsletter we cautiously re-entered the Market on the long side for intermediate-term and long-term investors using a relatively tight 5% trailing-stop strategy. The stop level was reached during the August 15th sell-off. We are now out of the Market at this time, and will stand aside as we expect more corrective action during September."


JULY 16, 1997 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We have to assume that the Bull Market will continue and one should re-enter the Market on the long side for intermediate-term and long-term investors. In order to limit potential losses we will use a relatively tight 5% trailing stop-loss."


APRIL 26, 1997 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"The Bradley indicator is Bullish for both May and June, however, our analysis indicates that mid-May to mid-June is the best time-frame for Bullish Market action."


MARCH 31, 1997  
MUTUAL FUNDS
"In both our January & February 1997 Newsletters we forecast a Major Top to occur mid-February, ideally on February 14, 1997. We recommended taking profits on all Mutual Funds and all Stock positions. Those who followed our recommendations took profits within 3 days of the all time highs on the S&P500."


FEBRUARY 10, 1997  
MUTUAL FUNDS
"The Dow is now at the 6900 level and we now expect a major top, ideally on February 14, 1997. The Market should start a corrective phase at this time. Natural cycle Harmonics indicate that this is the best time-frame for a major top. Therefore, we now recommend taking profits on mutual funds and all stock positions."


JANUARY 7, 1997 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"The Dow is now at the 6600 level and we expect this amazing Bull Market to continue into mid-February. It is always best to trade in the direction of the main trend, thus, we continue to recommend buying the dips as the Market continues to reach higher highs."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM STRATEGY
"The next dates of significance occur on February 5th, and on the 7th which is the time of the New Moon. A one or two day pull-back may start on the 5th, lasting one or two days into the 7th. The 7th is a HIGH ENERGY DATE as there are several HARMONIC INDICATORS on the 7th. Thus, the 7th should be the start of the final acceleration of the up-trend. Any weakness at this time should be another buying opportunity."


NOVEMBER 20, 1996 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"The Dow is now at the 6400 level, and continues to work higher. We expect this amazing Bull Market to continue into the New Year, 1997. However, we again recommend using a 5% trailing-stop strategy to protect profits."

TURNING POINT DATES & short-term TRADING STRATEGY
"For December we have three minor Turning Point Dates. Selling pressure into any of these dates (3rd, 6th & 17th) will be additional buying opportunities. The 17th is a HIGH ENERGY DATE which may generate an acceleration of the up-trend going into the 19th Expiration Date. The 20th should have increased volatility."


SEPTEMBER 22, 1996 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We now expect HIGHER prices going into the November elections, however, some selling pressure may occur during early October which will be another buying opportunity."


AUGUST 2, 1996 
MUTUAL FUNDS
"Our forecast back in January, 1995 for a Dow 5000 provided an aggressive long position for mutual fund investors. In order to protect profits we subsequently recommended using a 5% trailing-stop strategy which kept us fully invested until May, 1996. The 5% trailing-stop was hit in May, which generated a sell signal."

"We then forecast a sideways Market during the 3 month cycle (May-June-July), with corrective lows occurring during this time. We now believe that July was the low in the Market. Therefore, we are now recommending buying the Market with a stop-loss at the July lows."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM TRADING STRATEGY
"We now believe that both the S&P 500, and the Dow Jones Averages will work higher into late September; therefore, trading only on the long side (buying the dips) should be the best strategy for the next two months."


JUNE 19, 1996
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We are still in the last stage of a 3 month cycle which often provides sideways to lower Markets. Significant corrective lows often occur during this cycle."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM TRADING STRATEGY
"The best Turning Point Dates occur on June 28th; July 3rd, 11th, & 18th..."

"July 3rd should be the start of the next short-term trend, which should last into the 11th or 12th. The 8th and 9th should be down days. If the Market continues to decline into the 11th or 12th, then this should be a low Turning Point. If not, then the 15th should be the low. A rally should then start no later than July 16th, which should last into the 18th or longer."


APRIL 29, 1996
MUTUAL FUNDS
"We are entering a 3 month cycle that often provides sideways to lower Markets. Significant corrective lows often occur during this cycle."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM TRADING STRATEGY
"May 8th should provide a fast move and a good Turning Point Date."


FEBRUARY 26, 1996
MUTUAL FUNDS
"The Bull Market continues, thus, we will maintain the same 5% Trailing Stop strategy for long-term investors. Now, with the Dow Jones Average print high at 5659.03, the 5% Trailing Stop would be 5376 on the Dow Jones Average. The print high on the S&P cash was 664.23, thus, the Stop-Loss level for the S&P cash index would be 631.01."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM TRADING STRATEGY
"Either March 1st or the 4th should provide a Turning Point Date, ideally a low, with a rally into the 8th."

"The next minor Turning Point Date occurs at the time of the Lunar Eclipse, therefore, look for a minor Turning Point on either April 2nd or the 3rd. The two week time- frame between the Lunar Eclipse and the Solar Eclipse is often difficult to forecast, thus, extra caution should be used during this two week time-frame."

"The next best date for a minor Turning Point occurs on either April 10th or 11th. A strong directional move should develop with an acceleration on the 15th."


JANUARY 6, 1996
"In last month's Newsletter we stated that the best strategy for longer term mutual fund investors would be to use a 5% trailing stop-loss strategy. Thus, with the Dow Jones Average print high at 5235 we would use 4975 as the stop-loss level. The print high on the S&P cash index was 624.49, thus, the stop-loss level would be at the 593.00 level for this index."

"The week of January 15th contains numerous Harmonics, with Turning Points for the 15th and the 18th. This is a HIGH ENERGY WEEK, thus we expect the Market to have strong directional moves. Since it is also Expiration week, this is an ideal time-frame for trading the highly leveraged January OEX Options. If the 9th ends up a minor Turning Point high, and the Market has been choppy or declining into the 15th, then a strong reversal rally into the Expiration Date should occur."

TURNING POINT DATES & SHORT-TERM TRADING STRATEGY
"The next time-frame of significance occurs on Friday, February 2nd, or on the following Monday, the 5th. This should be a good Turning Point Date, with the new short-term trend lasting into Friday, the 9th, or Monday, the 12th, as the next turning point date."

"The best date for a minor Turning Point would be February 22nd, with a HIGH ENERGY TURNING POINT DATE to occur on March 1st. More on this time-frame in our next Newsletter."


NOVEMBER 27, 1995
"The best strategy for mutual fund investors would be to use a 5% trailing stop-loss strategy. Thus, on the Dow use 4800, and on the S&P 500 use the 570 level as your stop-loss. The next date of significance occurs on December 18th, which is the strongest Energy Date of the month. If the 18th is a minor low, then a rally into the 28th should occur."


OCTOBER 16, 1995
"Since we obtained new highs in September, we are changing our previous forecast for November. We now expect a potential parabolic rally into November 15th or the 22nd. The first three weeks of November should be the most significant time-frame for 1995, with the 22nd being the ideal Date for a Major Turning Point."


AUGUST 28, 1995
"The month of September is likely to be a trading range month, ideal for short-term trading - off our Turning Point Dates. If the Market rallies on the 11th, then look for an up trend into the 13th/14th time frame.....the next Turning Point Date is on the 22nd - probably a low. If the Federal Reserve does not change or raise the interest rates on the 26th, then a short 'squeeze rally' into October 2nd should occur, with big moves on the 28th, and/or the 29th."


JULY 10, 1995
"Expect a strong rally into the July 27th New Moon, or into the 28th. Our forecast for a Major Top at this time is still expected to occur. Take your profits in July, and expect selling pressure in August. There may be some follow-through rally action into August 30th, if the 23rd [August] is an obvious major wash-out low."


MAY 22, 1995
"A Dow 5000 is still possible longer term, however, for the intermediate-term, one should be taking profits this summer. A final rally phase into the end of July should occur, which should be a major intermediate-term top."


APRIL 6, 1995
"Another 20% gain this year would be a Dow 5000! Why not? It is a Bull Market folks."


FEBRUARY 19, 1995
"We now believe that March and April have the potential for substantial gains if the Dow Jones Average exceeds 4000. Therefore, look to trade on the long side, buying the dips, provided the Dow Jones Average stays above 3950."
