Market price action continues to amaze, and surpass expectations with new All Time Highs each and every week. The S&P has now gone over 332 days without a 5% pullback and should that continue next week it will set a new all time record! And to top it all off, a recent Fear & Greed Index just posted a reading of 95 on a scale of 100 being the highest! So Greed is at extreme levels! So, get my take on this and the market price action in this week’s update;

Hey Folks, we’ve seen price action give us solid follow-thru performance as we ended the third quarter. Record closes in the S&P, and strong near record closes in the DOW, NASDAQ and record highs in the Russell set the stage now for the upcoming Q3 Corporate Earnings. And on top of this, we have some coming Fiscal and Monetary Policies that could further affect price action. Get my take in this week’s update.

Folks we have two opposing forces in the markets at this time; –one is the stated fact of strong corporate growth in sales and profits; and the geo political tensions that have surfaced in North Korea. Each of these seem to be coming down for a fight to control market price action. These two independent forces will work themselves out, as they always do, but which will come out the victor? Get my take on this current fight and where price action can go in this week’s Weekly Round-Up;

Hey Folks, first I want to extend our support here from our User Group to the folks in the path of Hurricane Irma; –stay safe and stay dry! The markets seem unfazed by the storm but Futures Volatility remains higher than normal given the Geo-political risks that exist on the Korean Peninsula…we still see the Global Growth story is still intact providing support to current price action. But how long will this last? Get my take here in this Week’s Weekly Round-up;

Hey Folks, this weekend is a long Holiday weekend for traders here in the US Markets being Labor Day weekend with Monday a day off. Most trading will resume Tuesday and as we begin to move thru the Month of September we will also see trading volume come back into play as well. For the past 100 Years we’ve seen the DOW index fall on average 1.1% with other US Indexes also showing weakness. In the coming weeks we will also get key Central Bank Policy guidance. So we clearly have the potential to see market volatility pick up. Get my take on the markets here.
