The recent switch back to bull market mode continues as we are working off overbought conditions but via a pullback but sideways action. No comments out of either Janet Yellen of the Federal Reserve nor Mario Draghi of the European Central Bank moved the market much at all, and at the end of the day we had a 0.20% drop in the S&P 500 and a 0.14% advance in the NASDAQ. Right now it seems...

Despite short term overbought conditions the markets are holding up and not really coming in. Once we turn to bull modes generally overbought conditions are worked off with sideways type action and that appears to be the situation. Tomorrow will be some key speeches from central bankers so we'll see if any comment they make spooks the market even for a few minutes or hours. For the day the...

Indexes opened down a bit to begin Wednesday - from which dip buyers came in and provided a constant stream of buying until the Federal Reserve minutes were released mid afternoon. We then saw a very quick drop but buyers rushed right back in for a second time on the day and stocks finished out near their highs. The S&P 500 gained 0.25% while the NASDAQ was down 0.02%. Some saw the minutes...

Another gap up to start Tuesday as bulls have taken back control of the markets. After the initial surge at the open most of the rest of the day was quite quiet actually. The Commerce Department reported beginning home construction rose 15.7 percent last month from June, while starts for volatile multi-family homes jumped 33 percent.

Once again, another correction attempt ends in a trail of tears for the bears. We were at some key inflection points at the end of last week and today burst out of the gate of the new week as geopolitical tensions ease. Other than June, 2014 has been ho hum, but a week ago Thursday the market was deeply oversold and we've gone vertical since - very similar to the rallies throughout 2013. The...

A good week for the bulls ended in quiet fashion as indexes tried to gap up once again, which finally led to some selling - but a last hour rally helped change that. The S&P 500 fell 0.01% while the NASDAQ gained 0.27%; the NASDAQ continues to take over leadership of late. Next week the Fed will be in focus, with meeting minutes out on Wednesday and a gathering of central bank leaders in...

Indexes gapped up slightly at the open after Putin said some "positive" things about Ukraine, and churned higher most of the day. The S&P 500 and NASDAQ both gained 0.43% as we continue this oversold bounce from last Thursday's close.In a speech in Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in March, Putin said: "We will do everything in our power so that this conflict is ended as soon as...

Indexes gapped up at the open, rallied a bit more mid morning, and stayed steady the rest of the session. The S&P 500 gained 0.67% and the NASDAQ 1.02%. This marks the third significant up day out of four from last Thursday's extreme oversold conditions. We shall soon see if this is another "V shaped" bounce as we saw throughout 2013, where the market broke down for a quick correction and...

Indexes gyrated around the unchanged area in the morning, followed by some light selling later in the day. The S&P 500 fell 0.16% and NASDAQ 0.27%. Reuters reported on Tuesday that Russia has sent a 280 truck convoy to Ukraine carrying humanitarian aid, which the receiving country says it may block. NATO fears the aid may be a disguised bid to invade Ukraine, following its annexation of the...

Indexes opened up quite strongly Monday on hopes that geopolitical tensions would lessen, rallied mid morning but lots some steam as the day went by. There is still some work to do to get comfortable with the market right now - we've just seen a bounce that wiped away an extreme oversold condition. Investors were also happy with a statement from a key Federal Reserve official, Stanley Fischer,...

The "easy" short term trade today would happened if the market had opened down significantly as our short term oversold indicators would have been off the charts. Instead indexes opened up modestly and build on that throughout the day. News that Russia was ending military exercises near the Ukrainian border helped lift spirits. The S&P 500 gained 1.15% and the NASDAQ 0.83%. Please note...

Indexes opened up but could not hold gains; again very different action than we saw in June and July. The S&P 500 fell 0.56% and the NASDAQ 0.46%. We've been cautious for about a week now due to a technical breakdown and thus far nothing in the market action tells us to change course. The normal culprit - geopolitics - was cited as a reason for the selling today. In the premarket weekly...

Indexes opened down modestly but a small wave of buying came in as we have quite oversold conditions. But it was not an impressive pop at all. The S&P 500 ended unchanged while the NASDAQ gained 0.05%. Not much economic news of note here in the U.S. but Europe had some news. Europe's economic data showed Italy falling back into recession, and German factory orders declining 3.2 percent in...

Indexes opened down and dip buyer never showed up; this is a stark change from what we wrote repeatedly in June and July when morning dip buyers showed up nearly every day. We remain in a cautionary stance brought on by the action late last week. The S&P 500 fell 0.97% and the NASDAQ 0.71%. Ukraine was pointed at as the culprit but more realistically this is a market that had rallied and...

Stocks flip flopped in the morning Monday around unchanged but rallied throughout the afternoon as an extreme short term oversold condition we noted Friday was worked off. It is nothing to get excited about yet if you are a bull - in fact we noted there should be a short term rally coming due to how oversold the indexes had been and if you are a short/intermediate term trader that rally would be...

It was the worst week for the S&P 500 in 2 years (-2.7%) which speaks more to how smooth things have been on that index than anything too horrible with this week's performance. The NASDAQ had a weak period this spring but if you recall the S&P 500 and Dow Jones had not been hit very hard at all as people rotated out of growth names into safety stocks in April and May. For the day the...

Thursday was the first very truly rough day in a long while for the indexes but it should not have been a major surprise. If you have been reading our recaps we had been mentioning how the indexes were being held up by some big names but under the surface breadth was weakening. Further the NYSE McClellan Oscillator has been negative all month which is another sign that the market is being...

The Federal Reserve did nothing surprising ($10B reduction in quantitative easing a month) and a market that was sort of weak/neutral rallied on some dovish comments on the labor market in today's statement. At the close the S&P 500 gained 0.01% while the NASDAQ added 0.45%.Voting to cut another $10 billion from its monthly bond buys, the central bank left its short-term interest rate target...

Indexes continue to stagnate in July as the S&P 500 fell 0.45% and the NASDAQ 0.05% due to a late day selloff. Sanctions versus Russia were heightened by the U.S. and Europe which some point to for the late selling. (Obama spoke on TV) The Conference Board's measure of consumer confidence came in Tuesday at 90.9 in July, the highest reading since October 2007. Original post: STTG Market...

The rise of the “robo-advisor” is hard to ignore. Startups Wealthfront, Betterment, Personal Capital, and others have shaken up the managed assets scene by letting algorithms determine the best allocation of capital.Investing with a robo-advisor has given investors the ability to accomplish long term investment goals with a much lower cost over using a traditional advisor.A similar trend of lower...
