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...

Stocks sold off moderately Monday morning but dip buyers came in yet again - a pattern we have now seen for 2 months - and indexes close near unchanged. The S&P 500 gained 0.03% while the NASDAQ dropped 0.10%. News flow was light; keep in mind we do have the Federal Reserve meeting Tuesday and Wednesday but they have telegraphed their intentions so no fireworks will come of this. We also...

Indexes gapped down and stayed down all session as weakness in Amazon.com and Visa hurt morale a bit. The S&P 500 fell 0.48% and the NASDAQ 0.50%. Late in the day Goldman Sachs released a note saying they are "neutral" on equities over three months as it sees a slide in bonds leading to a temporary selloff in stocks.

Thursday was a quiet session with indexes flipping around the unchanged line. The S&P 500 gained 0.05% while the NASDAQ dropped 0.04%. It was another day of very high profile companies reporting. Economic news in the housing market was not very good - new home sales declined 8.1 percent in June, the biggest drop in almost a year. Original post: STTG Market Recap July 24, 2014

Indexes were up most of the session as a surge by Apple (AAPL) helped lift things; this is a massive component of the NASDAQ. The S&P 500 gained 0.18% and the NASDAQ 0.40%. It was a very busy day with a lot of blockbuster companies reporting so we'll focus on that today. Original post: STTG Market Recap July 23, 2014

It has been choppy action of late after the surge we had early in July during the holiday week. Stocks exited that week very overbought short term and since then we had a needed minor pullback followed by some geopolitical issues. All in all things are doing well in the large cap area while small caps have been a bit more troubled. So for the indexes we focus on each day things look ok. ...

Indexes opened quite significantly down on a number of geopolitical items (Russia, Gaza) but a steady line of buyers came in throughout the session and by the end of the day losses were minimal. The S&P 500 fell 0.23% and the NASDAQ 0.17%. There was not much going on in the economic sphere; most were discussing the issues overseas and if there will be any contagion. Original post: STTG...

Last fall I attended Mark Minervini’s Master Trader Workshop in Myrtle Beach with three other StockTradingToGo subscribers. I left Myrtle Beach after a long weekend of learning inspired and educated. I also left with the realization that I still had a lot to work on to become a master trader! Time flies by, because here […] Original post: Mark Minervini’s Master Trader Workshop...

In yesterday's recap when describing the late day selloff we wrote:All the typical knee jerk reactions took place – U.S. Treasuries were bid up, oil and gold spiked, as did volatility etc. How much of this is real humans trading and how much is just computers trading with each other we will soon see.One must keep in mind how computerized the market has become. When a news event hits a lot of...

Indexes were in a light pullback mode until news hit of the Malaysian Airlines crash, which accelerated selling significantly. At the end of the day the S&P 500 fell 1.18% and the NASDAQ 1.41%. This was the biggest one day drop for the S&P 500 since early April, as most of the pullbacks this spring came in the NASDAQ not the S&P 500 or Dow Jones. All the typical knee jerk...

Indexes again gapped up at the open and then didn't do much the rest of the session. The S&P 500 gained 0.42% and the NASDAQ 0.22%. The Federal Reserve's Beige Book found the economy expanding at a modest to moderate pace, with consumer spending up in all of of the Fed's districts. No surprise there as it is inline with much of the data over the past few months. Original post: STTG Market...

Indexes opened up to start Tuesday but sold off modestly as the day progressed as someone somewhere tried to find something negative in the Yellen comments to Congress. So they found a blurb where she called valuations stretched for smaller social media and biotechnology stocks and those areas sold off. Something like this is usually forgotten about in 24 hours. For the day the S&P 500...

Indexes gapped up at the open and then traded in a very narrow range all session; the S&P 500 gained 0.48% and the NASDAQ 0.56%. Precious metals had a nasty session after finally looking promising for the first time in a while late last week; this is why they are a lot more difficult to chart - their actions are a lot more random. Janet Yellen testifies tomorrow to Congress (no surprises...

Last reminder if you have not done so, please take 60 seconds to take our quarterly survey; thanks!We continue to see dip buyers very active - while this was a down week it was a needed respite after last week's holiday action pushed indexes to very overbought conditions. The S&P 500 gained 0.15% and the NASDAQ 0.44% after both being in the red this morning. Likewise a key name like Wells...

Just a reminder if you have not done so, please take 60 seconds to take our quarterly survey; thanks!Indexes in the U.S. opened down sharply this morning, following European markets which had suffered as some worries suffered about a major Portugal bank. However dip buyers showed up yet again to take advantage of the swoon and stocks finished well off their morning lows. The S&P 500 fell...
