    and if it goes to 6,000 she’ll say her next support is 4,000. and if it goes to 4,000 she’ll say next support is 2,000. and if it goes to 2,000 she’ll say next support is zero. techinical analysis is a total waste of time, and rear view mirror driving. tell me someone is going to go long the market because it hit an arbitrary level from some time long ago? or short the market because it fell below a certain level? It only measure moment, and can’t predict reverals, up or down

    she has been spot on — heard her predict a move below 7000 a few months back when the market was at about 9000. her forecast is not backward looking (“rear view mirror driving”), it’s foreward looking — hence the word “prediction”!
