Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street


Last week started strong, ended strong, the bids were there on the dip and the indexes recovered holding the trends and looking higher.

The US market started to see some leaders struggle: materials, metals, industrial equipment, and some chips. If leaders cannot hold the line and those struggling roll over, The Trump Rally stall and pause to refresh.

That said, the trends are still in place. There are lots of leading  stocks holding up well and more setting up or Northside moves. So, despite
the issues in the struggling leaders, others look ready to step into their place on the money’s rotation,

Should the new stocks not be able to break North and if those hanging on fall, The Trump Rally will see a deeper test, not a bad thing.

Remember, always take what the market gives, the name of this Wall Street game is to make money.
