Hey Everyone, our string of six straight up weeks was broken with price action over the past 5 days. The last two days moved the markets down hard into the close. We continue to see the Energy complex getting beat very hard along with most other commodities. Retailers and Technology also were beat up very bad as well.

Hey everyone, this past Friday we saw a lot of price action in the wake of very strong US Employment Numbers. It now puts back on the table a possible interest rate hike for Dec 16th of this year. The markets are placing their bets and allocating funds based upon these expectations. For you and I, we need to follow this price action or we will get left behind. Here is my take on the current markets and resulting price action.

Hey Folks we had a very interesting and strong finish to the trading week. Poor earnings from some of the global players like Caterpillar [CAT] and IBM were quickly offset by earnings from Amazon [AMZN], Microsoft [MSFT] and Google [GOOGL]. This put some strong wind in the sails of technology and the bulls. If that was not enough we also had dovish statements from “Super Mario” from the ECB and a 0.25 rate cut by China to move price action higher into this weekend. Now all attention will be focused on the coming FOMC meeting and what Janet Yellen will do. Here is my take on the current markets.
