Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street


  • This market cannot make much of strong earnings report.
  • The NAS Comp gaped up over 115 points, gave it back.
  • Fairly goo Bullish stock index patterns remain but upside is used to sell aka distribution.
  • Good patterns in lots of stocks and sectors are failing to provide breakouts that hold
  • Money not working into some Key areas, it has rotated.
  • Earnings season is in full swing

Earnings season has given participants reason to buy stocks as the vast majority of  have topped expectations, and have crushed them in some issues. Still, the major US stock indices, while not rolling
over cannot hold an Northside move.

The Key indices have relatively good patterns with NAS Comp, S&P 500, and DJIA forming triangles forming over Key support marks.

Technically, triangles can be positive or negative.

The Key is the index ranges are narrowing over the past 1.5 months and forming ‘points’ to those triangles, that indicates a serious directional move is coming soon, meaning  they are going to break North or South, the odds are 50/50.

Some sectors look really good, like Crude Oil, but that is arguably for a different reason than other sector stocks would rally on.

Nevertheless, money is moving toward Crude Oil and it looks like it is still interested in drugs and healthcare.

This is the end of the month and we will see position squaring ahead of May Day on Tuesday.

So, will continue looking North in those sectors that are getting money, and that are under accumulation, eg, Crude Oil, Drugs and Healthcare.

Pay attention in here remember what I said earlier 50/50 North or South at the triangle tips, as it is your money and your responsibility.

Always take what the market gives.
