    Healthy Correction? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Healthy Correction? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Stocks may have made a gain last week, but it was a hard-fought victory, and may have exposed just how vulnerable the market is right now. And, this week's trading will start out where last week's left off... within easy reach of some critical support levels, and in the shadow of still-waning momentum. We'll discuss it all - and show you - below, right after a quick rundown of last week's and this week's major economic announcements. Economic Data Last week was a rather busy one in terms of economic[...]

    On The Fence - Weekly Market Outlook

    On The Fence - Weekly Market Outlook

    Once again, stocks managed to end the trading week on the fence, pressured lower by bearish momentum, but perking up at a very important support line when push came to shove on Friday. How we begin the new week is uncertain, but in the current market environment even the first move out of the gate isn't necessarily an indication of the trend's true direction. We'll sort it all it below, right after a brief run-down of last week's and this week's major economic news, the biggest of which was obviously[...]

    Choppy Waters - Weekly Market Outlook

    Choppy Waters - Weekly Market Outlook

    The bulls managed to get a nice reversal rally going on Tuesday of last week. But, when push came to shove on Friday, the bulls couldn't follow-through and carry the market meaningfully higher. Though the market finished the week above its key short-term moving averages, it also finished the week pointing in a bearish direction. Maybe it was just a bad day. Maybe the market will rekindle last week's jump-started rally early on this week and make a run for new highs. (There's certainly room and some[...]

    Bullish Technical Indicators, Dollar & Gold - Weekly Market Outlook

    Bullish Technical Indicators, Dollar & Gold - Weekly Market Outlook

    With a possible end (more or less) to the Greek debt crisis taking shape last week, investors were once again confident enough to get back to their buying ways. When it was all said and done, the market gained about 2.4%, crawling back above some key resistance levels in the process. And yet, stocks didn't quite clear their biggest hurdles, and in rare cases where the indices managed to make good technical progress, they ran into other walls. In other words, there are still several ways from[...]

    Back From The Brink - Weekly Market Outlook

    Back From The Brink - Weekly Market Outlook

    Once again, just when it looked like stocks were going to pass the point of no return, good news regarding Greece's debt day the bulls a reason to celebrate on Friday. It wasn't enough to bring the market back into the black for the week, but just barely.  More important, Friday's bounce gave investors just enough hope to keep the bullish case alive for some. We'll look at everything below, as usual, but let's first run down some key economic numbers. Economic Data There wasn't much in[...]

    Technical Picture Worse Than It Seems - Weekly Market Outlook

    Technical Picture Worse Than It Seems - Weekly Market Outlook

    The bulls pushed back after last Monday's meltdown, but it just wasn't enough to undo the damage... at least not yet. The market did manage to work its way back above a relatively important line in the sand, until the Greek vote results came out. The bad news is, we're closer to a re-entry into a decided downtrend than we are to a rekindling of the rally. We'll look at where we are in relation to the line in the sand below, after a quick run-down of all of last week's economic news. Economic Data We[...]

    Chart Risks - Weekly Market Outlook

    Chart Risks - Weekly Market Outlook

    Last week's strong start for the market faded rather quickly once it became clear Greece wasn't simply going to be offered a bailout package just because it wanted one. In fact, by the time all was said and done, stocks actually lost ground last week, not to mention ended the week in near-bearish mode.  News out of Greece will likely cause some continued market swings, in both directions, until it is more officially resolved. News out of Greece will likely cause some continued market swings, in both directions, until it[...]

    No Progress Since February - Weekly Market Outlook

    No Progress Since February - Weekly Market Outlook

    The market certainly got off on the right foot last week, rallying all the way through Thursday when the NASDAQ Composite (COMP) finally cleared its all-time record high set back in March of 2000. With no other major market index completing the same feat though -- in addition to Friday's pullback somewhat extinguishing the budding rally -- we can say right now that once again stocks are caught between a rock and a hard place. We'll dissect the details below, right after a quick run-down[...]

    Where We Stand Now - Weekly Market Outlook 6.15.15

    Despite Wednesday's heroically bullish day, Monday's and Friday's tumbles were enough to translate into about a breakeven for last week... against a (mostly) bearish backdrop. That is, although the S&P 500 (SPX) (SPY) made a very modest gain last week, it made even bigger losses in each of the prior two weeks, and is still knocking on the door of some very critical support levels. We'll have a detailed discussion of those support lines below, after a close examination of last week's and this[...]

    Halfway To A Textbook Recession - Weekly Market Outlook

    Halfway To A Textbook Recession - Weekly Market Outlook

    After three straight weeks of bullish progress, the weight of those gains finally proved to be too much. The prod was a surprisingly weak revised reading on Q1's GDP growth. Rather than growing at a 0.2% clip as first thought, the second (of three) updates on the nation's overall economic activity rolled in at -0.7%. That was enough to send the S&P 500 (SPX) (SPY) down 0.63% on Friday, bringing the weekly loss to 0.87%. And yet, the market has yet to move past the point of no return and start[...]

    Bullish Levels Getting Entrenched - Weekly Market Outlook

    Bullish Levels Getting Entrenched - Weekly Market Outlook

    It wasn't a pretty or a convincing bullish move, but stocks did make forward progress last week, putting some distance between them and a huge hurdle that had otherwise been holding it back since February. Still, no later than it cleared that ceiling another possible one developed. We'll take a closer look at this new market situation, right after we review last week's and this week's economic numbers. Economic Data It may not have been a terribly busy week last week on the economic front, but it[...]

    Will The Breakout To New Highs Stick This Time? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Will The Breakout To New Highs Stick This Time? - Weekly Market Outlook

    The S&P 500 Index ended last week at a new high, and the technical trend momentum picture is bullish.  But we've seen similar moves since February reverse several times, as the market has remained in a choppy and grinding narrowing range (with a mild upside bias). The $64,000 question: Do we trust the move we just got by taking it at face value, or is this another potential fakeout? We'll weigh the odds below, after taking a detailed look at some of last week's and this week's[...]

    Will The Nasdaq & Russell 2k Drag The SPX Back Down? - Weekly Market Outlook

    You have to give credit to the bulls - they're not going down without a fight. In fact, last week's market rebound right from the brink of disaster was another impressive comeback. On the other hand, as impressive as Friday's bounce was, stocks still aren't over the big hurdle that's been holding them back since February.  Will this be the time we break through past the recent choppiness and trend higher? We'll draw that line in the sand after recapping last week's big economic news[...]

    Still In No Man's Land - Weekly Market Outlook 5.4.15

    Despite the strong bullish effort on Friday, stock's booked a loss for the past week. On the other hand, the market finished the week on a bullish foot, which broadly suggests we'll hit the ground running in an upward direction this week. (It doesn't hurt the bullish case that the longer-term trend is still technically intact.)  We'll weigh the odds below, after looking at last week's big economic news and previewing some of this week's economic data. Economic Data While we got a large number[...]
