Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street, Prediction Edition
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
Again, hitting my targets, the sentiment is high and the momentum is Strong in here.
Here is the predictions: In this earning scenario we are likely to see the S&P 500 at 3,257 in Y 2018, archive it.
The market continues finding new leaders as it moves up.
The big cap benchmarks: DJIA and S&P 500 are extended in here in terms of the number of rallies after besting the 50-Day MA in September, 2017, as well as the percentage above the 200-Day SMA.
Those technical characteristics often lead to a correction below the 10 and 20-Day EMA, more like the 50-Day MA.
So far, thought this strong Bull action has not allowed a pull back or a correction.
It will come, a caution flag is waving that the sellers are testing the waters in here. It does not mean they will succeed, but they are trying.
With that in mind we here at HeffX-LTN will continue playing the Northside with good new plays while letting current positions run until we see them stalling.
Then when the inevitable downturn begins we have already banked the gains and will take positions off the table with in many cases even more gain, and the close newer positions struggling at support.
Bulls are running
We have new pattern set up that look great and have time before to move up before earnings reports, 1 is RACE. There are 2 we do have a problem with holding through earnings if they start to make the move we want ahead of time. On some of the core (long term) positions, we will look to bank some more money ahead of results if they have put in good moves, then come back in after the adjustments.
Tune out the Noise
A lot is being made about the US government shutdown but it has little actual effect.
The Big Q: Why?
The Big A: the US government is the not the main driver in our economy, as government spending does not have a major impact on growth, and a shutdown might help spur more growth as long as Hussein Obama era regulations are being shredded, as we know they are.
Earnings are the real impact in the market, and after a super response to Q-3 earnings The Trump Rally continued to present day.
The Q-4 season has started and the reaction to the stocks announcing is not great but not bad either. Plus, the Bears are asleep in here.
Remember, stay focused, it is your money and your responsibility
