Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
We saw new US market highs into Friday.
This new Month and Quarter could bring some more buying and perhaps more new highs.
The Big Q: Will new highs become the targets for the algorithms machine traders to sell?
The Big A: Look at the market and what the leaders do.
The Bull runs in The Trump Rally have been very impressive.
But, be savvy, play the good plays as they set up, aka play the leaders as long as they lead. When they run out of momentum, and turn over, sell and move on, playing the Southside. Have a Southside play in your book on all of the leaders, they will turn over.
Fact, no one knows when the market cracks and rolls over. So, play the moves the market gives. Now, it is to the Northside.
Do not worry, be a professional, as the money is made faster when the market goes South.
Remember, your money, your responsibility.
