The US Stock Market: The Bulls Vs The Bears

  • Russell 2000 +16.4% YTD
  • NAS Comp +12.6% YTD
  • DJIA +11.0% YTD
  • S&P 500 +10.7% YTD

US stocks rallied late last week into options expiration, even as some analysts felt like they should not have.

In a review of the DJIA 28,000 outlook for Y 2019 at the weekend because now it look like we will get there, sooner rather than later.

Last week the retail sales number disappointed but it was very incomplete as it did not include e-Commerce giants like Amazon and non-store retailers.Also, the numbers signaled that will not be a recession in Y 2019 or in early Y 2020 barring any Black Swan events.

According to S&P, stocks now look fairly valued, but a China trade deal will leave more room for Northside ahead.
