Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
Earnings season has started and financial results last week were not bad, but the market paid no attention. The media pundits are calling the end of The Trump Rally, and for the same major crash that they were calling for last November, others dialed back their Bullishness.
There is a lot of noise in the air, though healthy pullback in here would be welcomed. That is a low probability play, not one we can count on in here.
The market is not being destroyed by its lateral move that has been on since 1 March, as it consolidates the big run.
The NAS Comp is healthy, S&P 500 and DJIA are trading above over their March lows.
The areas that are good are good, like bio-techs. Retail looks a winner, as many stocks are pretty solid, but the big winner is Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), Jeff Bezos is now the world 2nd richest man.
Heading into this week look North and South for plays as they set up. Always let winners work.
The market transitioning, looking soft in spots, but has not cracked yet. So, don’t be anxious, you cannot pressure it, if there is test this week and breaks below support Southside setups will show up if relief bounces fade.
If the market reverses again, which it may, there will be more Northside from the solid upside patterns and others setting up after
So, pay attention, keep watching the sectors, see how they set up, up or down it does not matter.
Always take what the market gives, the name of this Wall Street Game is to make money.
