In 2010 and 2011 there was a technical target on HUI of 888 (and higher) based on a measurement of the now defunct Cup & Handle. The C&H became defunct when a Bear Flag (not readily obvious on this big picture monthly chart) broke down in March and the red dotted neckline (which had been the lower line of a would be 'Handle) was violated. Risk managed adjustments were made in the newsletter right away.
If that same Cup were to form again, I'd put an upside target on it again because you can't try to out think the charts. There was a Handle to a potential Cup that was not activated because HUI failed to break upward above 630 (thus breaking the Handle) and instead, broke downward and activated a topping pattern.
Huey still deals with the neckline to that pattern to this day. There are positive signs in play with respect to the possibility of a lasting bottoming. These appear mostly on daily and weekly charts. But I wanted to throw up the monthly here to own the bad 888 target before moving forward.
Meanwhile, shorter term TA has guided us since March and it will continue to do so for what lay ahead.
