There is ample room to do this by moving modestly down towards the mid-point of the trend channel, or by simply trading horizontally for a period of time and letting the upward trend channel play "catch up." With the 39-week cycle maturing in mid-January and the 70-day cycle maturing towards the end of the month, prospects are good for a pause/pullback early in 2018.
