Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street, the Trend is Bullish

There is a saying on Wall Street that goes like this, “The trend is your friend until the end.” Well, the trend in the S&P 500 has been extremely Bullish over the past 3 wks, and the market respects the trend”–Paul Ebeling 

What happened last week

We saw new highs on the S&P 500, DJIA and the mid-cap S&P 400.

The NAS Comp, despite all the help from the mega-cap stocks, still has not hit a fresh high over the February high mark. Meanwhile, the PHLX Semiconductor Sector (SOX) continues to look good. Keeping an eye on its set up.

Technical Analysis

S&P 500 rallied, tested, rallied and tested in its uptrend channel. The S&P 500 is now at the upper trend line, as it moved to its new high. After 3 wks of Northside at the upper channel line, it may struggle a bit here, but it is still in a solid uptrend.

NAS Comp is closing in on its own new highs at the February all-time high. This has occurred just as the big NAS names that led it here appear to be slowing the moves a bit. The NAS has been turned back at each Key resistance mark on its way back up. The February high is a good place for it to pause, refresh, consolidate and reset the Northside move.

What to expect this week

FactSet estimated that S&P 500 companies would report aggregate earnings per share growth of 28% for Q-1, for the biggest rise in more than 10 yrs. Of the handful of S&P 500 companies that reported results last week, none issued negative earnings per share guidance for Q-2, and 5 offered positive guidance

Some Wall Street firms warn of the potential for a healthy 5% to 8% pullback across the board, it is your money, so your responsibility, pay attention in here and for the rest of Y 2021. And always take what the market gives.

Have a healthy week, Keep the Faith!
