The VantagePoint platform recently indicated upside momentum.

Using the predictive indicators embedded within VantagePoint and its predictive AI technology, we will point out three significant things. We have a bullish crossover indicated by the blue predictive indicator line crossing above the black simple moving average on August 7th.  We can combine that with the VantagePoint propriety neural index indicator moving from the RED to the GREEN that same day.  This indicator measures strength and weakness for a 48-hour period, in this case strength.  The move to the GREEN position further makes the case for a potential bullish scenario. We also have the predicted high and low above yesterday’s actual high and low indicating further strength.  I want to play the VP bullish indication.
