A New Year has started, yet many of last year’s financial debates remain the same.
Will Inflation or Deflation be the major theme in 2012? Will the Currency winner will be a stronger Dollar or Euro as a rising wedge has formed (see post here)? Will Global falling resistance hold or break? (see post here) Flag/Pennant patterns in the broad stock market will be resolved to which side? Is TLT facing resistance at the 2008 financial crisis highs (see post here)? Can TLT rally in 2012 like it did in 2011, up over 25%?
A “Helpful Tip” could well come from the TIP ETF as it has formed an Ascending Triangle over the past 5 months.
Tips can be affected by rising and falling interest rates and inflation/deflation. This pattern could still take a few weeks to resolve, yet how TIPS break from this pattern could well become a HUGE TIP for portfolio construction!
