Stock are slightly lower this morning, as traders brace for an extremely heavy week of headlines! There’s heavy debate on Wall Street about if the current rally can continue or is it simply a bull trap? In the past 30-days the Nasdaq is up over +15%, while the S&P 500 and Dow are up +13%. Large speculative bulls are hoping to see better than expected corporate earnings from some big names this week, then by mid-February U.S. corporate buy-backs will be well underway, start to kick in and provide some additional upside traction. Bulls are pointing to the fact the Fed has turned more dovish, U.S. and Chinese leaders appear to be working towards some type of compromise, and U.S. government workers are going to get paid.

I am more cautious than usual of the regular releases by the powers that be for the next couple of months. Just one obvious example will be USDA data being released as they have a lot of processing to do. I have always been skeptical of releases that say “seasonally adjusted” because to me that is simply license to bastardize the facts. Now we will hear about adjustments and revisions due to a month long shutdown of agencies that put together the numbers. By the time we begin to get “real” numbers they will be talking about “seasonally adjusted.” I’m just saying be more guarded of the releases and “knee jerk”...

Stocks are slightly higher this morning on better than expected data out of Europe and some fairly strong earnings being reported here in the U.S. Many traders continue to take a “wait-and-see” approach, as next week looks poised to offer up some major headlines. President Trump was scheduled to make his “State of the Union” address, but that has been canceled and won’t happen until after the government shutdown ends, which some argue might not happen for a few more weeks. The stock market will also be eager to see headlines from another round of trade talks with the Chinese. If plans remain in tact, Chinese Vice Premier Liu will visit the U.S. January 30-31st. Reports circulating earlier this week, which talked about...

Daily Trading Markets Commentary

»Posted by on Dec 20, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Stocks are steady to mixed this morning as traders adjust to another Fed rate hike. Mostly as expected, the Fed raised its benchmark interest rate a quarter-point. This was the fourth rate increase this year and the ninth since it began normalizing rates in December 2015. Fed officials did however slightly lower their projection of rate hikes down to two for next year. The problem seemed to be the language from Fed Chair Jerome Powell, in the post-meeting press conference, which the market digested as somewhat mixed and adding more “uncertainty” than “clarity”, hence we sold-off aggressively the more Powell spoke. Keep in mind, the S&P 500 has now fallen for a record 7th straight Fed Day, which is a streak that began...
