  1. Good start to the week, but it didn't last

    Stocks started the new week with a strong early push to the upside, but the rally quickly faded and the momentum turned negative. The indices closed somewhere near the lows of the day as the Dow, up 111-points at one point, closed with a gain of 15-points. The Nasdaq lagged losing 18-points or 0.3% and produced a failed breakout from the bear flag we've been watching.

  2. Flags are flying

    It was another flat to modestly higher day for stocks on Friday as the Dow shed 3-points while the Nasdaq and small caps posted solid gains. The S&P was up slightly, as was the I-fund and bonds (F-fund). The afternoon trading saw the indices giving back early gains, but a late rally kept it a mostly positive day for stocks.

From there the gains slipped and the action became choppy and the weekly returns hovered between positive and negative territory. It came down to Friday's close whether the week would see gains and a late rally set it in stone.

    There seems to be a lot of action in individual stocks of the large indices that doesn't produce any kind of trend in the indices. There is one more week left in June and so far ...
  5. Late selling spoils early gains

    After a mostly positive morning and early afternoon of trading, stocks took a little dive into the close with a last hour sell-off. The trading range wasn't all that wide and volume was light again, and neither bulls nor the bears have been able to gain much traction. The Dow lost-13-points on the day and the S&P and Nasdaq also closed with minor moves. The Transports and small caps had modestly good days as they both battle some support lines after recent pullbacks.
