Hey Everyone! This market has been on fire as money has been rotating into risk-on sectors as we see 2016 come to an end. We have seen many records broken over the past few weeks and I suspect we will see more before the end of this year. I am seeing opportunities present themselves in areas of the market that have been dormant for years. How high will the market price action take us? Should I jump into the fray or should I wait? Check out my Weekly Round-up this week to get my take on the current state of things. Enjoy!

Hey Folks, I hope you are having a great weekend. As a reminder for all, next week is a big holiday week in the US Markets with all US markets closed on Thursday and open a half day on Friday. In this holiday shortened week we can expect lower trading volume as the week progresses thru the holiday. This coming Friday is known as “Black Friday” where all Retails officially kick off the Holiday sales so it will prove most interesting to see the appetite for consumer spending! Get my take on the state of the current market and where we can go from here now that Trump is the next US President.

Hey Folks, well, this week will go down as one for the ages for traders; -we got the big moves market volatility was calling for and in both directions, yet we ended up in a surprise move higher! Markets are realizing that if Trump executes his economic plan this could be good news for US Corporations while Yellen maintains a dovish Federal Reserve. This combination is a toxic cocktail of easy money and tons of Government spending! A great prescription for price action to move higher! We are also seeing a very large sector rotation going on in markets where big money asset allocation models based upon a Clinton Presidency. Now we are seeing money moving into sectors that look better aligned with a Trump administration. Get my take on the current markets.

Hey Folks, the current price action we’re seeing in the US markets is unique! In fact, we’re seeing records broken; to include total number of down days in a row (9) and total number of daily moves higher in Volatility (9)…all of this showcases how markets react to the unknown and to potential change. With the US Presidential just around the corner (2 more trading days until the results will be known) I for one will be glad when we get this all behind us. The markets will show increasing sense of fear and higher volatility is the result of that fear! Get my take on the markets in this week’s update by clicking on the video.
