Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
The Northside move last week followed by a test has the Wall Street indexes in position to rally to higher highs in here. New months
often bring new money, and now there may be some eager to put money to work.
At the weekend we did not see the start of World War 3.
But, North Korea did launch another SCUD missile that blew up smartly at the launch, the 4th running.
The Big Q: What are they doing?
China’s economic data was off, as manufacturing and services new orders hit 6 month lows.
Wall Street earnings season continues with over 1000 companies reporting this week, about 20% S&P 500 components.
Some big Wall Street names are already out and numbers are not that bad on the marquis companies; a few are making all the money.
US earnings season is now a 2-month event.
There is lot of news flowing: economic, political, and geopolitical, the market has weathered it, made a good upside move, is testing it, and is in position to move higher on the new month, new money notion.
There are lots good patterns in this market. So, should we see that breakout, new positions will be placed driving the leaders.
As I write this report at 8:38a EDT the major US stock index futures are trading flat with a Bullish bias.
Remember, always take what the market gives, and never stand in front of a moving train.
