Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
Again, Wall Street analysts are predicting another up year for the S&P 500 Index (SPY)
The NFPs report is due out this week.
Some are saying that the market is being called too high, and the Bulls Vs Bears supports the calls.
It is a fact that the market can become more and more extended before it breaks. Last week we saw some volatility on the fake news report from ABC TV. This market show us that certain groups get sold quickly and recovery quickly.
That is a Key areas we are watching to this week, FAANGs and others in software, chips. Chips suffered a lot of damage, and it may take them time to come back, and set up for the next run
Money is rotating into new areas and some issues are testing, watch them carefully, look.
There are some Southside plays set up, and given the sentiment and some of the volatility we have to look at those plays.
The Big Picture
Stocks are extended, but it is a time of year runs North are often made. If there is the will to rally to
year’s end pay attention to the tests and play a year end move.
The major US stock market indexes are all in uptrends, there were 50-Day EMA tests by SOX and RUTX intra-day.
So it the the trends are to continue need bounces off the 50-Day with the resumption of the moves
up the 10/20-Day EMA to follow.
So, if the bids are there to carry stocks higher let the winners run.
Remember, it is your money, your responsibility, pay attention.
