Comment on the Daily Market Commentary (

  1. The range is wide right now

    Wednesday morning was certainly testing the valor of the bulls as stocks opened lower and within about 30 minutes the Dow was down 300-points. It did stabilize after that and rally back up, but the indices could not move into positive territory by the close, and the Dow ended the day down 92-points. The S&P and Nasdaq managed to stay relatively flat, but small caps and the I-fund went back to lagging.

  2. Rally!

    Stocks snapped back after the downside rubber band got a little overstretched. The indices blasted off for 2-3% gains with the Dow gaining 548-points.

Unfortunately for those in the stock funds, the Dow and S&P closed down and near the lows of the day, but small caps held onto a solid gain, which is quite a change from recent action. The Dow lost a modest 89-points, but that was nearly 250-points off the highs, while the small caps gained a respectable 0.24%, although that was barely noticeable on its volatile ...
  5. Volatility peaking - big reversal on Friday

    The volatility continued on Friday with a big rally to start the day that completely failed, but revived itself by mid-afternoon. We had a "V" reversal on the intraday chart, now the bulls are hoping for a "V" reversal on the daily chart, but the bears may not be that quick to give up. The Dow gained 287-points on the day, but it took a lot of detours to get there. The small caps and I-fund lagged again while tech stocks ...
