Hey Folks, we saw some interesting moves in US equities, currencies and the bond markets this past week when the FEDs hiked the rates 25 bps. Price action moved completely opposite of what many investors were looking for but we were ready in our User Group and saw the moves coming. And there are many reasons for this so take a look at the week’s Market Round-Up to get my take!

Hey Everyone, we are still in a strong bullish market that has a lot of hope and optimism built in. This week we saw Volatility start to move higher only to come back down as we finished out this week. With very low Volatility and very high optimism in the the belief price action can keep running higher always causes me to pause; –to sit back and add to my cash position and see where price action will move. We also saw some interesting moves in price action on Bonds, the US Dollar and Gold. Get my take here in this week’s round-up.

Hey Everyone! What a photo finish we had this past Friday with the DOW Index in the Red with only 2 minutes to go before the close. A finish in the Red would have ended its string of 10 consecutive closes and perhaps shifted some of the sentiment and mood in the markets. But, as we saw, the last 120 seconds of trading say volume and buyers step in and move the DOW up more than 20 points to end the day in the Green giving the DOW its 11th Consecutive Finish in the green and also cement a record that goes back to January 1987! An amazing finish, not only for the DOW but most other indexes as well where the day started off like the price action wanted to go even lower as we progressed thru the morning hours. Get my take here, on where to next;

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.
