Doing The Splits

By -

At the risk of pulling a Jim Cramer and simply saying the market could either go up or go down, I wanted to make an attempt at being open-minded and showing the most bullish (and, of course, bearish) charts as we head into the big FOMC day on Wednesday. I’ll be glad when the whole charade is over, but face it, we must. Below, even split, are six bullish charts and six bearish ones.


This, and other charts in this section, aren’t bullish per se, but they have been beaten so severely that there’s an argument to be made for a hearty, sustained bounce. There’s actually nothing bullish about it in the least, but it’s got a very long way to go on the upside before it encounters substantial resistance.
