The Bull Market Continues

We started a new bull market powered by artificial intelligence in May of 2023. I wrote about it on this blog several times and discussed it during this TV appearance last year. Here are my updated thoughts. 1) Some people say the bull market started around the October 2022 lows, and others say it started when we took out the late 2021 highs. My response is: Who Cares? It’s all subject to interpretation. The main [...]

Is This Pullback Over?

I tweeted on Tuesday night (4/16/24) that I feel the bulk of this recent market pullback is over. Before I continue, I want to remind everyone that I don't regularly update this blog. I actively manage portfolios for clients and my investment levels vary. If you would like more regular updates and analysis, you can sign up to become an Educational Member. 1) Since last May, I've been positive on the markets. That's when we [...]

Updated Market Thoughts

I’ve been aggressively invested in many leading growth stocks since the two follow-through days and the Zweig Breadth Thrust we saw in early November 2023. I discussed three of the stocks on the IBD Podcast on November 1, 2023, and they have seen very strong gains since that date: NVDA +112.1% , UBER +75.8% , MSFT +21.7%. I also wrote about the bullish factors in these two blog posts in early November 2023: Four Reasons [...]

Market Thoughts for 2024

The reason for this strength was the Federal Reserve signaling they were done with their interest rate hiking cycle.

Learn to Make Decisions

Here is the Market Note I sent to Education Members on 12/17/23: After running my Educational Product for almost 4 years, I am surprised that the recent strength in the market caused more stress for people than the bear market of 2022. I received more emails from members in November than I did during the entire 10-month bear market in 2022. This is very strange because the market did nothing but go down for 10 [...]

Another Thing Going for the Bulls

In early November, I wrote a blog post discussing four reasons for a year-end rally. They included: 1) The big institutions were coming back into the market because the Fed signaled they are done raising interest rates. 2) Sentiment. Most people are bearish and underinvested. 3) Seasonality. November and December are historically two of the strongest months. 4) Technicals. Two O’Neil follow through days, a Zweig Breath Thrust, and the major indexes regaining their 50-day [...]
