Looking For Short-Term Downtrend
The short-term uptrend continues, but it is time to be looking for the next short-term downtrend.
Laggard Stocks Now Leading
The big news of the past week was the sudden and startling outperformance of laggard stocks along with the sharp drop in the price of the leading stocks. When I say startling I really mean startling.
New Short-Term Uptrend Started
A new short-term uptrend started on Sept.4. The medium-term trend also looks like it has turned higher, although it is too early to know for sure. For now, the market, or at least the big institutional stocks, appear to be heading upwards.
Promising Short-Term Trend Falls Apart
A new short-term uptrend looked so promising on Thursday, but then on Friday, it fell apart. Bad news, a President's sensitive ego and the weak seasonal period all came together to undermine stocks.
Short-Term Uptrend Ahead?
There was endless discussion of the yield curve this week. To those skeptical of the yield curve, I will point out that industrial production has turned lower, and that this is also a good signal of trouble brewing for the economy and stocks.
Short-Term Trend Intensifies
The short-term downtrend intensified on Monday which is a signal for me to start looking for signs of the next short-term uptrend. It is counter-intuitive to think that intense selling leads to buying, but I find that is often how it works.
