Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
The DJIA looking like it is waiting to see with a Bearish bias. Big names broke lower then bounced Friday but still finished in the Red.
DJIA -57.94 at 17675.16, NAS Comp -44.58 at 4800.34, S&P 500 -6.77 at 2071.22
Wall Street ended a volatile week Friday on a lower note as investors eyed a downturn in the heavily-weighted healthcare (-1.1%) and technology (-0.9%) sectors. As a result, the tech-heavy Nasdaq (-0.9%) finished behind the S&P 500 (-0.3%).
On the week, the 2 indices lost a respective 1.9% and 1.2%.
The Wall Street is going to have to make a decision in here.
As I write this report note that DJIA mini 3:42a Sep 2016 17,754.00 +195.00 17,639.00 17,765.00 17,639.00
Sticking with the Northside plays in the solid sectors and if the market breaks higher there are more of them. We also have more Southside plays because the market is showing those setting up and breaking lower.
At some point the market will show us the direction they are all going, believe the market is in trouble.
DJIA at 17,675.16, -0.33% keeps oscillating in the range of 17400-18000 which is not expected to break in the next couple of sessions before the Brexit poll. but the index may test the interim resistance of 17800 depending on the UK news
For now play the moves that make up the market’s action North of South.
Thursday, 23 June is the Brexit vote and could be some volatility in front of that. Either way, Yes out or No stay in there is likely to be over reactions.
The UK odds makers are 74.6% in, so do not play that action play good patterns in the good sectors as long as they last.
And when the indexes break out of their ranges these big names will give good solid returns quickly, North or South.
Always, base plays off of the patterns, not the Noise broadcast daily by the financial commentators on TV, tune it out.
