Comment on the Daily Market Commentary (

  1. Investors run for cover

    Stocks were hit hard on Monday and we saw some technical damage done to the charts in the process. The Dow lost 602-points on the day and we saw losses of up to 2% - 3% in many indices. Volume was not too bad for a day that was a holiday with the bond market closed. Once the bond market opens on Tuesday we may either get a conformation of the weakness, or a bounce back since the bond market is the one that usually calls the shots over the stock market.

  2. A day of rest

    Stocks were mixed, but mostly lower on Thursday as it digested the big gains from Wednesday.

The Dow gained 545-points on the day, and it gapped up above that key 200-day EMA resistance that we have been watching. The gains were broad across most major indices and it seemed to catch many by surprise, including myself.

  4. Waiting on the election results

    Stocks had another wild ride on Tuesday with the futures pointing lower just before the opening bell, then we saw a strong open, an afternoon fade that took all of the early gains away, followed by another late rally into the close to end the day near the highs. It was quite interesting to watch. The Dow gained 173-points on the day with 0.6% gains in many of the indices, while small caps lagged a bit but gained almost a half of a percent. The Transports led with a 1% ...
  5. Election Day - tomorrow the market will give its verdict

    Stocks struggled early on Monday but fought back to close off the lows, although with mixed results. The Dow gained a solid 191-points despite Apple's weakness weighing on it. The S&P 500 also had a good day gaining back most of Friday's moderate losses. Small caps and the Transportation Index were flat on the day and the Nasdaq lagged with that pressure from Apple, as well as Amazon.
