  1. Tariffs signed, jobs report next

    It was another very strange day for stocks on Thursday. The swings weren't as wide as we had been seeing, but the Dow vacillated from 100+ point gains to 100-point losses and back again a couple of times, before closing up 94-points. This just goes to show that it is a difficult market to price right now with so much information to disseminate from the tariffs, to a top economic advisor resigning, and the tax cuts being implemented - just to name ...
  2. The Cohn sell-off didn't pack much punch

    Stocks opened the new week the way it ended last week, with a big rally.

Unlike on Friday, small caps lagged yesterday, but still performed well. Bonds were down slightly as the 10-year Treasury yield rose back above 2.88%. ...
  5. Does Friday's rebound mean the lows in in, or do we need to see a test of Feb's lows?

    Stocks were mixed on Friday, but mostly higher despite the Dow losing 71-points. McDonald's was a drag on the Dow and the broader indices did much better with the small caps and the Nasdaq doing especially well. The Dow was down nearly 400-points at the lows on Friday morning so we did see some dip buying after a sharp 3-day sell-off.
