Comment on the Daily Market Commentary (

  1. Here come the earnings....

    Stocks rallied sharply yesterday with the Dow tacking on another triple digit gain. There was a little bleeding in the last half hour of trading and the indices fell off their highs, but there were solid gains across the board. The Dow, which was up over 400-points at the highs, gained 294-points on the day, and the major indices were up between about 0.8% and 1.6% on the day, although the small caps lagged the larger stocks with a 0.59% gain. ...
  2. The market exhales on geopolitical and rate concerns

    The stock market was a bit rocky on Wednesday and the indices had a mind of their own as the Dow lost 219-points or 0.90% while the small caps were up - the Russell 2000 Index, and the S-fund was flat. The S&P 500, Nasdaq and Transportation index were all somewhere in between, but all of them faded from the late morning rally and highs of the day creating negative reversal bars on the charts.
  3. Another bounce back

    After Monday's Tariff Tantrum that produced a large intraday negative reversal, stocks battled back on Tuesday regaining all of the late Monday losses, and added a bit more. The Dow gained 429-points with a push higher at the open after overnight comments from the Chinese President Xi Jinping that eased investors' trade concerns.
  4. Tariffs "Trump" jobs report

    Stocks were rocked on Friday by comments from President Trump regarding more tariffs on China and after all was said and done, the Dow lost 572-points, or 2.34%. Most of the major indices gave away 2% or more with the Transports losing nearly 3%, and small caps falling just short of 2%. The I-fund held up much better as the Tariffs don't have the same impact on European companies.
