Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
In this market of good recoveries there are leaders that look good and sectors that look very good in here.
Last Wednesday, the caution flag was raised and waved, and we will soon see how the market responds this
week. In the past we have seen the markets shrug off the dips and continue North
The Big Q: What will be the result of “Comey the Nut Job’s”public/private testimony on the Hill?
The Big A: The market will tell us very soon, stand by and pay attention.
We have see issues like this in the past and over and over again such market jolt have been easily overcome. As I write this at 11:00p PDT on Sunday, 21 May the US major market index futures are trading flat with a Bearish bias.
Our Northside positions are working, there are more plays setting up, if they move then they come into play. It is the same with the Southside plays
The Wall Street Game is scope out the leaders, and follow them, the caveat this week though is cautiously given the jerk like action flowing constant Fake News.
The major Oil industry stock are setting up to move higher with the price of Crude Oil and the huge deals made in Saudi Arabia at the weekend, President Donald Trump is both a very good businessman and politician to boot.
This week the market has to hold and move higher again, it will struggle with the rotation. But, it is a positive there are new groups coming in, old ones shaking out, so we will see.
We always take what the market gives, pay attention, caution.
The Bulls Vs. The Bears
VIX: 12.04; -2.62
VXN: 13.86; -1.8
VXO: 11.07; -1.62
Put/Call Ratio (pCR) CBOE: 0.99; -0.14. The week saw the ratio jump back over 1.0 Wednesday and Thursday. This is an inverse indicator, i.e. when there are more puts traded than calls it starts indicating selling is over. It has to have a series of such closes to mean anything. The candles will tells when a Homing Pigeon is made.
Bulls and Bears: Bulls faded slightly but not much. And remember the string of 60+ closes from early Y 2017. That typically results in a correction at some point.
The Bulls are at 58.1 Vs 58.7 last
The Bears are at 17.1 Vs 17.3 last
