Hey Folks, this past week we saw the US FEDs raise the rates by 25 bps, Amazon surprised the markets with an acquisition of Whole Food Markets and Oil prices continue lower. Meanwhile, inflationary pressures seem to be slacking rather than getting stronger and Consumer Spending patterns, while high, seem also to be abating a bit further. Are we in a “sell in May and go away” market mentality? Get my take in this week’s free Weekly Round-Up

Hey Folks, the so called FAAMG stocks (FB, AMZN, AAPL, MSFT and GOOGL) get snake bit by giving up a combined $97 Billion in market capitalization. Of course we saw Indexes hit new all time highs earlier in the day and then succumb to the avalanche of selling that caused NASDAQ to fall about 1.8% on the day. For our members we were ready and had a good day with this downdraft, that showed it was inevitable, the timing of course was just known. Now the question is; –what next? Get my take on the markets in this week’s Weekly Round-Up.

Hey Folks, this past week we’ve seen a horse race develop between debt and equity. Normally the race is over rather quickly with Debt running one way around the track and equities going the other; –but in this case for 2017 we are seeing both running in the same direction. Normally in situations like this it shows a pending build-up of Risk Off type environment. In this week’s Round-Up I give you my take on the current price action. Enjoy!

Hey Folks, I want to wish everyone here in the US a Happy Memorial Day Weekend! For our other members the US markets will be closed on Monday along with some markets in Europe and in China so Monday will be a very slow trading day. In this short weekly update I review my current thinking on the US markets and where are our key pivot levels and what the current price action is telling us. Enjoy;

Folks, for just the second time this year we saw the S&P fall more than 1% which shows how rare it is has been to experience any market weakness. And for the Nasdaq, it has not experienced a downdraft of more than 2% in over 171 active trading sessions which is also very rare. And even though this past trading week we finished lower than where we started the last two days of the week showed buyers step back and with much higher trading volume. In this week’s update I will show you where my focus will be. These key price levels should be watched very closely. Enjoy!
