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 [...]

Four Reasons for a Year-End Rally

Here are the reasons I am expecting continued strength into the end of the year. 1) The big institutions are back! Since they control the market, it’s important to analyze what they are doing, and they came back last week with strong volume. The main reason was they interpreted the Federal Reserve is done with their current rate-hiking cycle. That doesn’t mean the Fed will cut rates anytime soon, but it does mean stability for [...]

Four Reasons I’m Positive on the Market

I’m more positive than most people on the market for the following reasons: 1) Indexes – The big institutions control the market.

Forget the Macro and Focus on Price

The market could be setting up for a tradeable rally over the near-term for the following reasons: 1) 90% of what I use to judge the health of the market is the price action of growth stocks. Focusing on price not only helps to shut out the noise, but it also gives me a clearer picture of what’s truly happening in the market.
