Nothing new in the market trend, the Dow is up slightly, the NASDAQ is down slightly, and neither are trading in a range big enough to indicate there is nothing more than sideways indecisive trading. More than likely, the lack of direction will be enhanced with most traders heading for the beach early today. … [Read More...]

July 1 Daily Market Comments

Yesterdays trading showed indecisive trading, Doji type days and inverted hammer days in the indexes. Today's positive trading shows a good indication that the bottom of the upward trend channel continue to act as support.

June 30 Daily Market Comments

Be careful, today's bullish trading may just be the offset of panic selling yesterday afternoon. If the characteristic of this market remains the same, today's trading should close near the high end of its trading range, continuing the indecisive nature of the markets. Keep in mind, any recommendations/positioning in this market condition requires entry confirmation. The market is telling us something! Obviously, there is no trend. Adjust your trading strategy accordingly. Either very quick trades or go fishing for a few days. … [Read More...]

June 29 Daily Market Comments

Greece! Watch for the knee-jerk reaction in today's trading. It is estimated that the economy of Greece is approximately the same as Rhode Island or Connecticut. As an economic factor, it does not mean anything. Unfortunately, as a political factor, it may allow Russia or China to get a foothold in the European sector. Watch the intraday charts.

What the indexes reveal at the end of the day will be most important. … [Read More...]
