Our newsletter got off to a good start with our initial issue.  We accurately predicted that the Nasdaq, would be down Monday and Tuesday and turn-around on Wednesday which it did. We think we may have some further down-side to go as the NASDAQ is currently below it's 200 day moving average which is an important support level it's been below since last Friday.  Another negative sign is that the Nasdaq was down on increasing volume which is a negative indication. On the positive side Cisco finished up on Friday and the New Economy is here to stay. The Nasdaq may flirt with 3500, some time mid October, but we expect a good move through the end of the year with our end of year prediction of 4572 - 4813.

The market performed poorly for the previous week. The Dow was down 293 points or 2.6%, the Nasdaq was down 143 points or 3.6% and the S&P 500 was down 28 points or 1.92%. September is living up to its poor performance record. We predict another down week for all the US markets, with a possible up day on Wednesday
