  1. China bond threat ignored

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Wednesday but it didn't take long for the dip buyers to show up as we saw another "multi-minute" pullback for stocks. By the close the Dow had lost 17-points, all but erasing an opening 128-point decline. We saw minor losses across the board in the U.S. indices, while bonds also erased early large losses.
  2. Dow leads, bonds fall

    The Dow played catch-up after Monday's loss by gaining 103-points, or 0.41%. Boeing's stock accounted for more than 50% of the gain in the Dow. The other indices were up slightly while small caps came in slightly lower on the day. Oil prices moved their highest level since late 2014. ...

The Nasdaq, S&P 500, and the small caps gained between 0.18% and 0.40% so more solid gains to start the new year. The dollar was down again but the I-fund was flying with or without that. ...
