  1. Sell the news?

    The volatility picked up on Monday as we saw a classic "sell the news" reaction to Friday's evening's passing of the tax bill in the Senate. The Dow was up by over 300-points at the morning peak before the steady decline ensued. It managed to hold onto a 58-point gain but most of the other major indices ran into negative territory by the close. ...
  2. Volatility kicks in Friday morning - gone by the close

  3. Dow has biggest gain since March. Small caps lag

    Stocks rallied on Thursday as the tax cuts moved a step closer. The Dow gained 332-points on the day, outperforming the S&P 500 and Nasdaq, although all of them had solid days. It was the biggest one-day gain for the Dow since March 1. ...
  4. The beat goes on - new highs, that is

    It was a big day for stocks despite a few news events that we might have thought would have sank the market. But no -- the Dow gained 256-points and we saw gains of close to, or more than, 1% in most of the major indices. The Nasdaq lagged with just a 0.49% gain.
  5. The post-Thanksgiving exhale

    Stocks were mixed on Monday, a day where the seasonality charts suggested we could see a little breather after a Thanksgiving week rally. The Dow gained 23-points while the Nasdaq and S&P saw small losses. The small caps, I-fund, and Transports took bigger hits.
