March 27th Daily Market Comments

The expected knee-jerk reaction to the cancellation of the health bill has taken the Dow right down to the projected target, the 50 day moving average. Although the market indexes are trading lower today, the NASDAQ, the S&P 500, and the transportation index are trading above where they opened. The Dow is trading towards the higher end of its trading range so far today. This implies the selling is not of a rampant nature. Numerous stocks that were trading in good uptrends last week opened lower today but now are continuing to trade positive. The markets continue to show continued strength in specific sectors. Have both long and short in the portfolio.
