Monday’s Technical Outlook for DJIA (.DJI)
Wall Street ‘hijinks’ drove the Major US stock market indexes due North last Friday, with the S&P 500 tapping at record highs and closing at 2,129.90, up by 1.53%, on the Headline Only report of a strong rise in NFPs, suggesting the US economy is recovering after slowing down at the ends of Y 2015 which on a closer look is untrue, meaning the US Fed will not/cannot raise rates until sometime in Y 2017.
The DJIA rose by 250 pts or 1.40%, to close at 18,146.74
The NAS Comp added about 80 pts, to end at 4,956.76.
Corporate earnings will take center stage this week, with several big banks reporting their Quarterly results.
