Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
Healthcare reform was scuttled by a vote from maverick US Senator John McCain (R-AZ) a walking dead man shouting his last hurrah.
This is not over yet, more this week.
President Trump will do the right thing, and stop subsidizing the insurance companies to write bad insurance in the failing Barack Obamacare markets. That action bring an end to the majority of those plans fast, requiring the need to take action.
The Big Q: Does America go fully into socialism, or do we get back to what has made us great and
free up markets to be the efficient mechanisms they are.
The Big Q2: Do those in power want to relinquish their power over this aspect of American lives and thus relinquish power back to The People.
Big Stuff right?
But the market is not concerned.
Earnings are getting pretty good overall, last week the Wall Street indexes reversed off of new highs, but did not roll over.
Further, there are still good patterns to move on if and when they break. Good patterns tend to drive the market higher, as long as money comes in, we see a new month begin Tuesday, we wait, we see.
Many good stocks continue to hold their patterns regardless of money rotating, focus on those.
Remember, always take what the market gives. And it is your money and your responsibility.

The Bulls Vs The Bears: Bulls continued their charge down Wall Street, moving back over 60 for the 1st time since early
Y 2017. The caution lights are flashing about the Northside action.
The market tried to roll over several times since the 60+ readings in early Y 2017, but the selling was met by the PPT’ers, then the buyers come back in strengthened the market.
Now with this reading, we have watch for rollover attempts. Late last week might have been 1, or a signal that 1 was coming, just not yet.
The Bulls are at 60.2 Vs 57.8 last
The Bears are at 16.5 Vs 16.7 last
