Comment on the Daily Market Commentary (

  1. Tariffs are back!

    Stocks rolled over again on Thursday as the back and forth continues and the bull flag on the S&P 500 chart seems to be taking more shape. The Dow lost 252-points on the day, or 1.0%, while the broader indices held up moderately better. The charts show some interesting developments but unfortunately there's more pivot points rather than a clear direction.

  2. What Political turmoil in Europe?

    Stocks opened higher on Wednesday and, as if Tuesday's political mayhem in Europe never happened, they climbed throughout the day gaining back all of the losses from the day before. The Dow gained 306-points with the S&P and Nasdaq basically reversing Tuesday's losses. Small caps led, and I-fund was up while the dollar pulled back sharply.

  3. Political turmoil in Europe scares global markets

    The new holiday shortened week started with a thud as political turmoil in Italy and Spain helped bring down global markets. The Dow lost 392-points or 1.58%, while the broader indices lost ground but not to the same extent. The small caps held up well while the International stocks were beaten down with another spike in the dollar.

  4. Stocks shrug off big drop in price of oil

    It was a pre-holiday trading day on Friday and it played out as such with light volume and a fairly tight trading range. The Dow lost 59-points while the Nasdaq and the Transports were the only majors to post gains. The I-fund was the laggard with the dollar pushing higher again.

  5. Geopolitics stirs the pot, but stocks bounce back

    It was another case of a news driven emotional sharp move for stocks on Thursday, in this case an early sell-off, that was faded as the day went on, and that seems to be the theme lately. After a slightly negative open, the Dow was down about 280-points 90-minutes into the trading day, but things stabilized and the indices caught a bid, and by the close they were almost where they opened, which was down modestly. The Dow ended the day down 75-points.
