Market Update – November 12, 2013

Tuesday, November 12 2013 | 2 Comments

US Stocks closed Monday at fresh all-time highs and remain in a well defined up trend. Bonds, on the other hand, continue to struggle. In today’s market update video I review the sustainability of both of these trends, as well as if / when investors should be making any changes at this point to their…

Debt Ceiling Raised and Markets Love it – Market Update October 18, 2013

Friday, October 18 2013 | Leave a comment

Looks like financial markets will enjoy a second straight solid week. This is largely because the dreaded Government Shutdown was avoided because the debt ceiling was raised. In today’s market update video I share what this means in the short term, as well as what to be prepared for long term. I also explore how…

The Markets Sure Like What Bernanke’s Cooking! Market Update – 9.18.2013

Wednesday, September 18 2013 | Leave a comment

Today Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, spoke – and the markets LOVED what he had to say. At least in the short term. Bernanke surprised the market by saying the Fed wouldn’t begin tapering their bond buying. So at least in the short term, the Fed will continue pumping $85 billion per month of funny…

Market Update – September 6, 2013

Friday, September 6 2013 | Leave a comment

The market is still flirting with the 50 day average as I figured it would (see last post for details on this). So far it’s right on the line, so I fully expect it to break out and form a new longer term trend as early as next week. This short video shows what I’m…

A Big Market Test is Coming Right up…

Wednesday, September 4 2013 | Leave a comment

The latest correction in financial markets has been pretty mild, all things considered. Soon, the first test on whether or not this was a very short term and modest correction – or the start of a longer and larger decline, will begin. What I’m referring to is the 50 day moving average (the average market…

Market Update – August 27, 2013 – So Really, is the Market Now Correcting?

Tuesday, August 27 2013 | Leave a comment

2013 has so far been without an actual market correction. Sure, there have been a couple very minor 2% to 5% pull backs, but nothing really major. For the most part, US Stocks have been the best game in town and roared to double digit gains without much resistance. However, the past couple weeks there…

Market Update – August 12, 2013 – What’s the next Market Move?

Monday, August 12 2013 | Leave a comment

At the moment financial markets are a bit directionless. After a couple weeks of strong gains, the past couple have been mostly sideways. In financial geek-speak we call this consolidation. Basically, it means the market is setting up for it’s next move. That move could be up, or it could be down. Pretty indecisive, right?…

Market Update – July 22, 2013

Monday, July 22 2013 | Leave a comment

The good times of summer seem to be rolling in financial markets again. While not all asset classes are back to all time highs, some are, and those that aren’t are getting pretty close again. So, how long will it last? Is this just a head fake and a big drop right around the corner?…

Market Update – Declining Wedge Still in Effect

Thursday, July 4 2013 | Leave a comment

As I covered in a market update video earlier this week – the market is still trying to figure out the declining wedge pattern it’s in right now. You can see this here: It’s tried to break above it the past three market days, but seems to be struggling to find a catalyst. With many…
