Weekly Market Outlook - Not The Kind Of Win The Bulls Wanted, But Still A Win
The market may have ended last week with a gain, but it was anything but the ideal kind of progress.
Weekly Market Outlook – A Huge (But Hollow) Victory For The Bulls
The S&P 500 soared 3.8% last week, logging the biggest weekly gain since August. But there's a lot of economic news that could rattle stocks this week.
Weekly Market Outlook – A Reminder That We’re Always One Headline Away From Trouble
After moving above its 20-day and 50-day on Thursday, headlines on Friday ruined S&P 500's effort. The close of 3348.44 was back below the 50-day moving average, and though above the 20-day average, Friday's low of 3323.69 briefly broke that floor..
The Problem With Wednesday's Gain
Stocks may have logged a gain on Wednesday, but it certainly wasn't the one the bulls wanted.
Weekly Market Outlook – Don’t Mistake Friday’s Bounce For An “All Clear” Signal
Stocks ended the week on a much-needed high note, but keep things in perspective. The week was still a pretty big loser, and even with the gain, all the indices remain below pivotal technical levels
Wednesday's Meltdown And Thursday's Failed Rebound Leave Stocks In Dangerous Territory
All of the major market indices are at or near a major technical floor, with no apparent interest in moving away from that danger.
Weekly Market Outlook – The Lack Of Last-Minute Heroics Last Week Is Telling
The bulls gave it a good go, but the rebound effort that took shape early last week petered out pretty quickly -- right where resistance could have been expected. This time though, the bulls didn't stand up to the selling.
Weekly Market Outlook – Hope Is Quickly Fading
If the bulls don't act fast and act big, the market could slip to the point where the straggling bulls throw in the towel and let some more serious damage unfurl.
Don't Read Too Much Into Wednesday's Bounce
Credit has to be given where it's due - the bulls won the day. Stocks were up an average of about 2.0% on Wednesday, ending a short-lived but harrowing selloff that shaved the S&P 500 by about 7.0%. If nothing else, investors can take a breath.
Weekly Market Outlook – The Fight Isn’t Over Yet
The sheer scope and depth of Thursday's and Friday's plunge set up some buying, as there are still plenty of traders out there that seriously think stocks can never fell in earnest again.
Weekly Market Outlook – Like It Or Not, You Can’t Fight The Tape
It didn't seem likely, but the market managed to tack on more gains last week. In fact, it accelerated a rally that's been in place since late June. Let's recap last week's economic announcements and preview the upcoming economic news.
FANG Stocks Update: Actually, Netflix Has Some Room To Run
It's a move that most traders would be hesitant to follow. FANG stock Netflix bolted nearly 12% higher on Wednesday following news that new subscribers would likely stay on board even after the pandemic subsides.
Weekly Market Outlook – An Unimpressive Win
Stocks logged another gain last week, but it was far from being inspirational. The S&P 500 continues to struggle with technical resistance near its February peak, and the volume behind the Nasdaq's gain continues to deteriorate.
Weekly Market Outlook – Hittin’ The Wall, Just As Scripted
It was hardly a disastrous week. In fact, most stocks made gains. The advance was anemic though, and faded as the week wore on. The bulls just didn't show up when it came time to push through February's peak. A sign of bigger trouble ahead? Maybe.
Weekly Market Outlook – Even Bad News Is Good News
Even when things finally looked dangerous mid-day on Friday, the bulls mustered some gumption to claw their way back to a small gain for the day. Friday's win on top of the bigger gains earlier in the week carried stocks to meaningfully higher highs.

The past five months have been great ones for the broad market, and even better for FANG stocks... save one.
