Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
This is a big week for earnings, and last week earnings certainly aided the market action, as a lot of stocks that were set to move make their breaks North
There were some big names in chips, software, even drugs were positive, so let positions run, pick up new ones as you see them ready up.
That is Bullish, and some say worrisome, but the market keeps rotating finding new leadership, and bring back the old leaders.
So, that keeps us looking for Northside plays, along with some Southside ones in the sectors that were leading, but rotated and are in the process of testing Key support.
None of the geopolitical news at the weekend will make any difference to this market.
There is lots of Bullishness now.
Notably all of the big money managers that said they were out of the market because it was ready
to crash are being forced back into the market.
Those sidelined billions are now helping to drive this market further North.
Remember my mantra: always take what the market gives, and never stand in front of a moving train,
It is you money and therefore your responsibility to pay attention.

The Bulls Vs The Bears
Notably the Bulls continue rising for the 4th week running over 60.0 and the Bears fall to lows not seen since Y’s 2014 and 2015.
In the past 60+ has been a cap’r on market rises, but does not augur and immediate cause and effect. It can mark those high marks hit, but the market can continue to rally for some time.
I remain Bullish, but cautious in here.
The Bulls are at 63.5 Vs 62.3 last
The Bears are at 14.4 Vs 15.1 last
