Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street


The market’s focus this week

FOMC meets on Tuesday and Wednesday to talk a rate hike and more trade issues with China, Canada, and the EU. The heavy pressure is on China now.

Then there is The Trump Administration’s feelings toward social media and WH talk of an executive order to refer FB and TWTR to the anti-Trust department of the DOJ.

But, more importantly are the stock and index patterns.

Again, new highs were marked last week for the DJIA and S&P500 as the smart money moved back in after 2.5 week consolidation, and now NAS Comp, S&P 400 and Russell 200o, growth indices have put in consolidations to support the big caps.

The Big Qs: Does the same rotation pattern continue, do they move up together, or does one side roll over to the benefit of the others?

The Big A: The leadership is trying to show up in support, energy, materials, telecom, and financials.

But, it would help the overall market if the NAS Comp’s big caps started higher; they trade on lots of exchanges, and they look like they can put in a new Northside leg after 3 weeks of testing.

So, we will look for new setups, and see if  they make the breaks North.

Remember, it is your money, so your responsibility, and always take what the market gives.
