    COMPUTER CHIPS COULD PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY DURING SUMMER DOLDRUMS

    The markets are trading pretty much as we anticipated. The HCM-BuyLine® is positive and is still very strong, so any pullback should be bought. July and August are historically slow months and usually produce nothing but volatility; this seems to be holding true in 2021.

    RECORD HIGHS LEFT AND RIGHT! EXPECT BUYING OPPORTUNITIES IN JULY

    The HCM-BuyLine® is positive, but we are a bit overbought and a pullback is warranted. If we do get some selling, this could be another buying opportunity. Technology has really picked up recently, and we added additional exposure two weeks ago which is panning out very well for us.

    DON’T RUN FROM RISK, EMBRACE IT

    One of the riskiest things anyone can do is not take risk…You have to take a risk in every aspect of your life if you are to have any success at all.
