WEEKLY RESEARCH:  Weekly Insider Data and Commentary files were last updated Saturday, April 12th with data from the Friday, April 11th, SEC closeout.  The Insider portion of the Workbook section of the WebSite was populated with new weekly data on Saturday, and e-mail versions were available then as well. (Data for all companies, and broad strategy commentary.)  The Insider Commentary file of the past weekend includes an updated, thumbnail Strategic view of the Markets from the top-down perspective of all models.   The Markets cannot be viewed as a singular snapshot, but are instead a dynamic, moving picture.  Employing MPT research to follow and anticipate the most probable trend changes is an important aspect of the research.

MONTHLY RESEARCH:  The April, 2014 edition of Market Profile Theorems was run based on the data close-out of Friday, March 28th.  Your specific data files were pushed to you on Sunday, March 30th. The WEB site data (Workbook section) was  available on Monday, 3/31/14 at 9:00 AM, and included refreshed Probability Plots, Screening features, and Files located in the monthly File Download section of the Web-site.  The Strategy notebook should have arrived on Thursday, April 3rd.  If you did not receive your files, or the notebook by the dates indicated, please contact us. Reach us by e-mail or call 239-948-0101 if you wish to schedule a conference call in April.

GENERAL COMMENTARY:  Style closed March in a Neutral Capitalization, Strong Value mode.  MPT model performance, relative to the S&P 500, at the individual company level was poor over the March 2014 period, with Insider, and Probability Plot Screens doing best.  Performance versus the NASDAQ and Russell 2000 was good.  The bearish outlook suggested by the Strategy portion of the research last month remains in place.  The odds are high that we are in a Distribution phase of this cyclical Bull Market.  We see a good possibility of DJIA 15,600  being visited over the next few weeks. The top-down, monthly Earnings model continues in a sideways to downtrend - well below the highs of 2011.  See the weekly Insider Commentaries, and the monthly Strategist, (Green Book) for further details and interpretation.  See this issue of the weekly Insider Commentary for additional color.

The Market Cycle, in terms of MPT's "Market Clock," is off 9:00, and is in the MARK DOWN phase. This Bull cycle within a Secular Bear Market has closed.  Please see the current weekend's Commentary, as this has important implications for the Equity Markets. Earnings Revisions and Surprise, and the Summary model, will drive performance going forward.

As to the Top-Down work, following a very accurate 2011, 2012 price targets based on our Top-down models were hit, with the initial correction correctly anticipated from DJIA 13,200, and S&P 500 1415. The adjusted upper targets, made in June, 2012, of 13,500 (DJIA) and 1425 (S&P 500) were also met and exceeded.  The bottom end of our expected trading range for 2012 was far too aggressive, as was our expectation that prices would close lower for the period.  2013 was an even more difficult animal to wrestle with. Our upside targets were far short of levels reached this year, and our downside view too aggressive.  2014 has started out weak and is more in line with our long-held expectations for significantly lower equity prices.  We are currently well-above the high end of the expected trading range for 2014, and now expect an intermediate term correction of 10% - 15% - with DJIA 15,615 is an initial target.
