Weekly Market Outlook – Losing Speed At The End Of The Runway

Sector Shakeup: Healthcare Crashing, Technology Soaring
Some sectors are remaining in a bullish mode, while others are reversing course. These trends are worth a closer look if only because they may point to the shape of things to come.
Weekly Market Outlook – Dangerous Lack Of Fear, Or Just Rock-Solid Bullishness?
Stocks were overbought headed into the beginning of last week, but investors didn't care. Thanks to last week's 0.5% advance, the S&P 500 is now up 23.7% from December's low. That's one of the biggest sixteen-week gains on record.

Weekly Market Outlook - The Bulls Push Back, But Haven't Won The War Yet

Weekly Market Outlook – As Breakouts Go, This Is A Poor One
The market was four for five last week, and ended the week at its best close since early November. This is anything but a convincing move just yet. The bears still have a good shot at turning the tide in their favor.
Weekly Market Outlook – Stuck In The Middle With You
Five straight days of losses for the S&P 500 forced traders to rethink how strong this market really is. Even as Friday's action was winding down, the bulls were testing the waters again, with the market never really slipping into too much trouble
February Jobs Report Are Better Than Headlines Suggest
The knee-jerk headlines are certainly alarming enough. February's payroll growth of only 20,000 was still well short of expectations for 180,000 new payrolls.
Sector Divergence Brewing, Though It's An Ugly, Half-Hearted Divergence
The broad market may be spinning its wheels, content to go nowhere for the past week and a half. If you look under the hood, though, you'll find most stocks actually haven't been that docile.
Weekly Market Outlook - Pullback Averted For Now, But Gains Still Weigh

Alphabet remains wishy-washy, and Amazon has actually lost ground. All four FANG names had cleared long-standing technical hurdles, though it's only been Netflix able to sustain a healthy move into that new bullish groove.
Weekly Market Outlook – Still Defying The Odds
It was touch and go for the better part of last week, but when push came to shove as the weekend approached, it was the bulls doing most of the shoving. Thanks to Friday's 0.64% gain, the S&P 500 ended the week on a high note.
