A note from Louise Yamada
After 25 years at Smith Barney / Citigroup and 15 years independent as LY Advisors, LLC., in December 2020, I decided to retire from my monthly publishing deadlines. I have enjoyed the markets' challenge and hope we have served clients well with market direction and education in Technical Analysis to provide both safe passage and opportunity through the years. Note some key calls below.
