  1. Relief rally contnues

    Stocks were higher again on Thursday with a 5th straight explosive rally. The 306-point gain pushed the Dow back above 25,000, but of course there were no hats and horns this time because it is still 1400 points below its high from a couple of weeks ago. Is that where it's heading, or will this relief rally run out of steam before then?

  2. Stocks up, VIX down, 50-day EMA is next

    Stocks opened lower on Wednesday but quickly bounced back and the indices enjoyed big gains across the board. The Dow gained another 253-points, or 1%, and it was the laggard on the day. Small caps and the Nasdaq led with gains of 1.8%, while bonds were down again as inflation numbers continue to move higher.
  3. Early weakness doesn't discourage dip buyers

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Tuesday and moved sideways to slightly higher for most of the morning before an early afternoon spike gave the indices a modest gain for the day. The Dow, down 180-points at the lows, reversed to close up 39-points. Investors still seem a bit tentative because of the big swings, and because there is concern that this relief rally may not hold. ...
  4. Bulls digging in, but possible resistance overhead

    Stocks opener higher on Monday, following-through on Friday's big positive reversal day. The Dow ended the day up 410-point. That was about 140-points off the highs and it may have hit some resistance, but still quite impressive. With volatility remaining fairly high, these wide swings could continue for a while. ...
  5. V, W, or a lower low?

    The market opened higher on Friday but it didn't take long for the bears to put the pressure on again. By about 1:30 PM ET, the Dow was 500+ points on the day, and it was looking like it could be another one of those -1000-point days for the Dow. But as the major indices started to test their 200-day EMAs we saw buyers step up and the Dow rallied into the close gaining 330-points on the day.
