Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street

Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street


This is a Big data week, starting with the ISM Monday, Factory  Orders Wednesday, and the September NFPs, employment report Friday.

The day to day Wall Street volatility continues  with the NYSE indexes struggling in Bearish patterns while SOX,  NAS Comp and RUTX holding.

The US Fed is still trying to prevent any selloff, the latest evidence being Schoolmarm Yellen’s jawboning on the week that the Fed can directly buy equities during a crisis. That is currently not lawful, she needs Congress to give her the Green light for such a socialistic adventure.

There are still some great patterns to the Northside and Southside, in the stock market. Look for entries if and when the volatility chills some, and see a new trend emerging from the wild actions.

We might anticipate a Northside trend if the Fed has its way, but  still prefer seeing a trend established out of this
volatility, or at least a really clear break to the Northside or break the Southside out of the 17,900-18,500 range on the DJIA

Leaders will emerge and others will follow, look at the the chips and industrial machinery closely in here  for a drictional signal.

But for now Wall Street split and very volatile even with their moves.

Again, want to see the trend emerge or stabilize before putting on new positions.

Always take what the market gives, cash is an asset and there will always be a trade.

There is no harm in being Neutral, remember this is October.
