When there is a market correction, it’s important to wait for a confirmation that an uptrend is underway before scaling back in. A follow-through day is the signal we are looking for.

You’ll also find several annotated charts showing an index low, how to track the prerequisite rally and pinpointing where an FTD begins.
If you’d rather not get wrapped up with the specifics, you can follow me on Twitter where I’ll post as soon as we have a FTD.
