Key Indicators Continue to Turn

December 19, 2016, 2:45 pm

We’re down to less than two weeks left in the trading year, and while stocks took a breather after last week’s Federal Reserve meeting, they are consolidating at new levels well above the pre-election worry.

December 13, 2016, 3:44 pm

Just when it looked like the market was set to take a break following its incredible post-election run, it bounced off support and climbed to yet another new all-time high today.

Calling All Bulls!

November 14, 2016, 4:29 pm

Very few things about the last week haven’t been surprising. First, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States. Then, the market rallied all week on the news. Even those few who had predicted Trump would win the historic election didn’t expect stocks to be higher the following days.  Continue Reading »

Clarity in Sight

November 8, 2016, 4:33 pm

Presidential elections are often a weight on stocks, but this one has been an unusually heavy load.
