**** Volatility Spike ****
2/6/2018 10:06 AM
Below is a 1 minute chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. My thoughts and guesses:
Yesterday’s low was 23,900, but only lasted about 1 minute at this level
The index was off more than 1,500 points at that level, but traders bought in at that point
In my humble opinion:
23,900 is support for the market (red horizontal line)
Novice traders will be stunned
Advanced traders will be buying here
Think of this as an 8% off sale
Expect lots of volatility on Tuesday and perhaps the days that follow
I would not be surprised to see the market trade sideways for some time
Obviously, I can be totally wrong here and the market continues lower and goes below 23,900.

Please do not make panic moves
Move no more than 20% at one time. E.g., if you are 70% stocks now, move to 50% stocks in one day, you can always call the next day and move another 20%.
Please do not panic sell all stocks at one time, we have found that panic moves hardly ever work out
