Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street

Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street


Wall Street earnings are winding on down and we have a light economic reports week ahead: Empire manufacturing Monday. Housing starts, Industrial production and Capacity Tuesday and Philly Fed Friday.

This week the NYSE indices may try to follow the path of the NAS Comp to higher highs and hold.

There are lots of good setups and a lot of good leaders, in the stocks that we at HeffX-LTN are following and playing, and many going nowhere,
Some energy stocks are trying to make a new move to the Northside. Machinery stocks ( a leading indicator) are setting up to rally again after a hiatus and some volatility.

We are continue to play the stocks that are making moves with the up trend, thought the is a lot of negativity about this Bull market’s future in the media and from the pundits..

That friends is the type Noise that drives sentiment to the positive side for a move further North.

This market is not showing any real weakness yet, I believe it is too early to short. Good stocks are moving higher, they are solid stocks and the Key indices are not seesawing.

So, the reason to play the Northside is because it is paying off, but stay alert as the leadership has narrowed.

Play the stocks that are moving means taking what the market gives, and tuning out the Noise.


The Bulls Vs The Bears

Sentiment Indicators

VIX: 10.4; -0.2

The Bulls Vs The Bears

Despite the negativity, the Walls Street Bulls rose, the Bears fell. Again, still near the 60 mark that has launched selloffs in the past, and there is that string of 60+ closes still hanging over The Trump Rally. A return to 60+ would have us looking at a possible end to the upside after S&P 500, DJIA break higher from their current pullbacks.

The Bulls are at 58.7 Vs 58.5 last

The Bears are at 17.3 Vs 17.9 last
