Hey Folks, this past week we’ve seen a horse race develop between debt and equity. Normally the race is over rather quickly with Debt running one way around the track and equities going the other; –but in this case for 2017 we are seeing both running in the same direction. Normally in situations like this it shows a pending build-up of Risk Off type environment. In this week’s Round-Up I give you my take on the current price action. Enjoy!

Folks, for just the second time this year we saw the S&P fall more than 1% which shows how rare it is has been to experience any market weakness. And for the Nasdaq, it has not experienced a downdraft of more than 2% in over 171 active trading sessions which is also very rare. And even though this past trading week we finished lower than where we started the last two days of the week showed buyers step back and with much higher trading volume. In this week’s update I will show you where my focus will be. These key price levels should be watched very closely. Enjoy!
