Hey everyone, this will be more many a long holiday weekend with Independence Day coming up in the US on July 4th. And even though that is a Tuesday and markets will be open on Monday, most traders are taking an extended weekend. As such, we can expect lower trading volumes on Monday. The first half of 2017 saw one of the strongest starts to the year since 2013 with the S&P up 8.2% with 24 Record Highs and NASDAQ even better finishing the halfway mark up 14$ with 38 Record Highs. Will this pace continue for the remainder of this year? Get my take here in this weekly round-up below.

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.
