The indexes were in a new coma today until the Fed announcement at which point they jumped a bit to the upside. The S&P 500 gained 0.13% and the NASDAQ 0.21%. Since all the discussion was about the Fed today, we'll focus on what happened there. Unlike what some had assumed, there was no language changed in terms of an interest rate hike coming sooner than anticipated. Many economists...

We saw a nice bounce in the indexes today which the NYSE McClellan Indicator told us had a quite good chance of happening. The S&P 500 and NASDAQ had twin gains of 0.75%. We should have either a continuation of a quick reversal tomorrow afternoon based on the parlor games people read into whatever the Federal Reserve announces. As we've said the past few recaps some are looking for some...

Quite an interesting day in terms of large divergences between the 2 indexes; the S&P 500 only fell 0.07% while the NASDAQ sunk a full percent lower! A lot of very popular "tech stocks" fell as people anticipate the debut of Alibaba - some fund managers could be selling stock to provide cash to buy this hotly anticipated IPO. Please keep in mind the Federal Reserve meets this week and the...

We had the first down week in five this past one and our NYSE McClellan indicator helped us out a bit as it turned negative late last week and we didn't see a return to positive this week. It need need be positive for the market to rally but it usually means less stocks are participating and we should be more cautious during these periods. For the day the S&P 500 fell 0.60% and the NASDAQ...

Indexes were in the red most of the session but a late rally pushes markets into the green. The S&P 500 added 0.09% and the NASDAQ 0.12%. News flow again remained slow; as it has been all week. Original post: STTG Market Recap September 11, 2014

After a drop this morning pushed the S&P 500 to some key support we saw dip buyers jump in but at a relatively modest pace; the NASDAQ was stronger as the very severe Apple influence weighed on it. Economic news continues to be very light this week after last week's onslaught. The S&P 500 added 0.36% and the NASDAQ 0.75%. Original post: STTG Market Recap September 10, 2014

Indexes fell Tuesday as some underlying weakness we have begun to notice the past 3-4 sessions has finally hit a broader array of stocks. Treasury yields on the 10 year bond spiked back to the 2.50% range for the first time in a while; they have stayed strangely very low despite a lot of positive economic data. Some believe the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates more quickly than they...

U.S. indexes finished mixed Monday with the S&P 500 down 0.31% while the NASDAQ advanced 0.20%. News flow was quiet as investors tried to figure out last Friday's employment data so let's get right to the charts! Original post: STTG Market Recap September 8, 2014

Indexes opened down on a disappointing employment number but we are in a place here where Wall Street traders would not be adverse to some bad news as they want the Federal Reserve spigot running as long as possible. So after an initial drop, buyers came in the rest of the day and stocks closed out at the highs. The S&P 500 rallied 0.50% and the NASDAQ 0.45%. Nonfarm payrolls gained...

U.S. indexes jumped this morning as the European Central Bank once again cut interest rates and stayed positive most of the session, but experienced a dip in the final hour to close in the red. The S&P 500 fell 0.15% and the NASDAQ 0.22%. The ECB lowered its benchmark interest rate to 0.05 percent, and cut its deposit facility to minus 0.2 percent. There was also a booming economic report...

Another quiet session for the market as Wednesday was essentially the exact opposite of Tuesday with the NASDAQ leading the indexes down rather than up. The S&P 500 fell 0.08% and the NASDAQ 0.56% as Apple took a significant hit. As a major weight in the NASDAQ index, when Apple moves strongly one way or the other it affects the entire index. In economic news July factory orders rose...

U.S. investors returned from the Labor Day holiday to a generally quiet session. The S&P 500 finished down 0.05% while the NASDAQ rallied 0.39%. The Institute for Supply Management's index of factory activity, which rose to 59, the highest since March 2011, from July's 57.1 - was generally a non event. Construction spending was announced as increasing 1.8% in July. Original post: STTG...

A spike in the closing moments of the day helped cap off a strong August as the S&P 500 finished up 0.33% and the NASDAQ 0.50%. Volume was very light ahead of the holiday weekend. The Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's final take on consumer sentiment rose to 82.5 in August from 81.8 the month before. Consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic...

Indexes opened down to begin Thursday's action but dip buyers came in slowly during the day to minimize losses. At the end of the day the S&P 500 fell 0.17% and the NASDAQ 0.26%. All systems remain on go. Figures from the Commerce Department showed the economy expanded more than previously projected, with gross domestic product rising at a 4.2 percent annualized pace, versus an earlier...

A quiet day of rest and consolidation, consistent with a serious rally. The S&P 500 finished flat while the NASDAQ fell 0.02%. News flow was very light as we come to the end of summer and many are enjoying vacation; volume out there reflects this. Original post: STTG Market Recap August 27, 2014

A day after crossing over 2000 but then falling back the S&P 500 finished above that big round number. The S&P 500 gained 0.11% and the NASDAQ 0.29%. The day's economic reports came in well above expectations; orders for durable goods rose 22.6 percent last month versus a 7.5 percent estimate. The bookings for longer-lasting goods came on increased demand for commercial aircraft. A...

The S&P 500 hit the much commented 2000 level mid day Monday but fell back a tiny bit in the afternoon. This is only a psychological number but humans are attracted to those big round numbers. As we mentioned Friday a tiny pullback in the indexes worked off a very extreme short term oversold condition and that led to an immediate round of buying today. So the bull market has certainly...

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...
