    Last week was a tale of two halves, as the end of 2013 saw typical holiday bullish action, while 2014 started with a thud.

  2. Weak start to 2014

    2014 came in like a lion (or maybe a bear) as the Dow lost 135-points. It was the first loss on the first trading day of the year since 2008. The losses seemed steep and sentiment did get more bearish, but in reality it was less than a 1% loss after a year that saw gains over 30%. Nothing to be overly concerned about yet.

    The Dow chart below exaggerates the day's action a bit. The Dow did gain 26-points, but it was a slow, flat, tight trading range day that saw most indices end the day about where they started.
