Market Top?

Thursday was an ugly market day. Friday was considerably uglier. Then Monday happened.  I’m sure you all know what took place by now. Right after the open the DOW fell 1089 points in a “flash crash”.   What was that all about?

Let’s do a bit of recent history. Since February of this year the market has wiggled “sideways” in a “box” so to speak. We had an S&P top at about 2117 and a bottom at about 2040.  So for months on end we bounced along inside that range, generally running higher for 2,3 or 4 days and then selling back down for 2, 3 or 4 days. Over and over, wash/rinse/repeat.

1.2.2015 Starting off with lousy reports Bookmark

One might have thought that after setting record after record on the S&P during 2014 that maybe, just maybe we'd see some better economic reports. But no, we come into the first day of trading and what do we see? The PMI missed estimates, the ISM missed estimates and the construction spending fell to 6 month lows.

Merry Christmas everyone!  There's no bogus political correctness here at IY. If you're a Christian you're celebrating Christmas, not "the Holidays". If you're of another faith, fine, I hope you are or have already celebrated your particular "special day".  All we preach about is people caring about each other, enjoying sharing their time with them, and taking the time to be thankful for all you have.  It's hard to argue against that.

Oh look...the futures are rising!  Imagine that.

Yesterday, on an incredibly low volume session, the market pushed for new highs. They are so desperate to make it look like life is grand in the US that they've decided that we should probably end the year at all time highs.

Yesterday marked something like the 50th "new high" for the year.

Good morning all, welcome to Christmas week!

For the most part the Christmas week generally brings us a low volume move slightly higher. Most of the upper level traders are already in the Hamptons celebrating the Holiday's, leaving the junior traders to "don't do anything stupid".

But because the volumes are so low, it is fairly easy for a single big order to order to move the underlying stock, so we oft times see outsized moves in single issues.

I love the idea of people making money from Wall Street. All the 401K's and IRA's that are increasing because of the rising market is indeed a good thing on the personal level. What disturbs me however is that most people really don't quite understand why this is happening.

Good morning all, welcome to Friday and the big jobs report.

Yesterday the market stumbled itself into a slightly red close, not able to muster the firepower to continue moving higher. then overnight the Japanese yen fell again to  insanely low levels and that got global markets fired up, as they continue to use the Yen as a carry trade for of course...creating more debt instruments.
