    Yields Continue To Fall Despite Looming Fed - Weekly Market Outlook

    Yields Continue To Fall Despite Looming Fed - Weekly Market Outlook

    Stocks were on pace to close last week out with a gain, thanks to Wednesdays and Thursday's big rebound.  But, solid news on the employment front sent stocks lower on Friday, and into the red for the week.  Still, the bulls were just strong enough to hold all the major indices above a key line in the sand, maintaining hope that stocks may find their way out of this lull and renew the bigger uptrend soon. We'll examine exactly how the bulls are hanging on to hope below, after a deeper inspection[...]

    Another January Swoon In Store? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Barring a big move on Monday, the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 isn't going to be the beneficiary of a so-called Santa Claus rally.  The S&P 500 (SPX) (SPY) is now down 1.1% since the Christmas break, versus the average 1.8% gain we usually see during this period of the year. That, however, isn't the only market worry at this point.  More alarming is how much the last three months of 2014 looks like the last three months of 2013, which served as the basis for[...]

    Nasdaq Composite Picking Up Steam - Weekly Market Outlook

    Nasdaq Composite Picking Up Steam - Weekly Market Outlook

    Last week was a fairly typical Christmas holiday-split week, marked by weak volume before and after the day off, and a slight gain on par with the beginning of an average Santa Claus rally (not to mention the tepid bullishness in front of the Christmas break).  Though the trend was up more or less, take last week's price action with a grain of salt, as last week was anything but a normal one.  Let's first examine - and chart - last week's big economic news. Economic Data The holiday-abbreviated[...]

    Capitulation Or Acceleration? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Capitulation Or Acceleration? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Stocks toyed with the idea two weeks ago, but pulled the trigger last week.  What's that?  A significant stumble.  After the bullish momentum slowed the first full week back after Thanksgiving, it reversed - in spades.  The S&P 500's (SPY) (SPX) 3.5% pullback last week was actually the worst single calendar-week performance since August of 2011. Ironically, the sheer size of the selloff may also be the best thing going for the market this week, as it may inspire a short-term[...]

    Can The Nasdaq Comp & Russell 2k Give The Next Boost? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Can The Nasdaq Comp & Russell 2k Give The Next Boost? - Weekly Market Outlook

    Though the market may have gotten off  to a bad start with Monday's 0.7% stumble, the bulls took charge again the very next day to hammer out a gain for the week.  Granted, it was less than a 0.4% gain when all was said and done, but a gain is a gain. On the other hand, it didn't take long after last week's turnaround from Monday's dip for the lethargy to set in again (some of which is likely due to the winter holiday season).  Once again, the S&P 500 (SPX) (SPY) is bumping around new-high[...]

    Grinding Higher Economy & Stocks - Weekly Market Outlook

    Grinding Higher Economy & Stocks - Weekly Market Outlook

    As is usually the case, Thanksgiving week proved to be a rather tepid one for stocks, with most of the trading crowd choosing to check out around the middle of the week.  Volume for last week as about half the norm. Nevertheless, where we left off on Friday is where we'll restart things on Monday, so it's still worth figuring out where we are and where we're likely to go from here for the broad stock market. We'll do exactly that below and look at one interesting sector long-term setup,[...]
