Hey Everyone, all major US Market Indexes continue to blast higher putting Bears on the defensive! In fact, even with a down start to the day this past Friday before a long holiday weekend in most North American markets could not stop Indexes from finishing in the green! Of course all price blasts higher end when most do not expect them to but the question here is when, and for how long will this bullish run continue? Remember, we are in the second longest bull run in the history of US markets before suffering a 20% draw down and we have seen over 90+ days of moves without even seeing a great then 1% down move. Get my take here and where to, from here.

Hey Folks, this past week we saw solid upward price action after President Trump announced a coming Tax Package that would be huge! Upon those statements, price action exploded outside of a trading range and quickly made new 2017 highs! The Bulls seem to be in a marathon and a sprint at the same time. Can that last and if so, how long? Get my take here.

Hey Everyone, this week saw price action move higher on better than expected US Government Economic Data. I is very nice to see price action react more to Economic data vs playing the FOMC guessing game! But we need to be careful up at these current price levels as most of the upward momentum is based upon the expectations of Fiscal Policy actions that will loosen regulations, cut taxes and increase jobs thru infrastructure spending. Get me take on the current state of things here in this weekly update:

Hey everyone, this past week we’ve seen many major US Indexes hit all time highs! When all time highs are hit, the markets get more euphoric and it seems to beget even more buying pushing price levels and the resultant PE ratios even higher…at these levels I tend to be more cautious. Do not chase price is a axiom I like to follow. This is not to say we cannot go higher, but I do believe we should exercise prudence. Should the Trump Administration follow through and get many of its plans implemented we could see price action move higher. Big money will take a wait and see approach. Get my take on the current state of things.
