Enjoy The Froth
US equities once again shrugged off added geopolitical stress with several benchmark indexes hitting new highs this week.
Small Caps Lag
Even as US equities once again shrugged off the drama unfolding on the Congressional stage by closing down less than -.5%.for the week, Small Caps continue to lag, highlighting the fact that tariffs have not helped US based companies.
Oil Compressing
US equities shrugged off the political theater on Capitol Hill, the trade war with China, and assorted rebellions on multiple continents. Three out of the four key US equity indexes hit new all-time highs while small caps still lag by a wide margin.
Round 2 Goes To China
US equity markets were under pressure early in the week, but reversed course Thursday and Friday, ending up about +1% for the week. Risk Gauges all flipped positive.
Dead Unicorns And Small Caps
U.S. equities closed mostly down for the week after recovering from a 1300-point swoon in the Dow Industrials. Markets seem to have found support at August lows, and it might have some bounce left in it before it runs into major overhead resistance.
Is Value Back?
US equity markets were pressured this week by news of impeachment proceedings against President Trump. The ratcheting up of the trade war with China was the final straw for the markets on Friday with IWM leading the decline, down -3% for the week.
Flashback To The 70’s
Global equity markets had a moment of self doubt and most country ETFs backed off after digesting lower rates in the US. The thinking behind the tepid market response had some logic as the Fed stated they were concerned about an economic slowdown.
It’s Not (WE) Working
Global equity markets continued their climb with the S&P 500 hitting new all time highs on Thursday before backing off. Small Caps and value stocks roared, ended the week up almost 5%, ignoring a massive correction in U.S. Treasuries.
All Clear...Maybe
Virtually all global equity markets rallied, led by Mexico in the Americas, Korea and China in Asia, and Russia in Europe. The theme here is that weak performers and energy exporters found buyers.
Changing Of The Guard
US Stock indexes made impressive gains this week , +2% ( give or take) , as long as one ignored the Dow industrials which managed to stay positive. Boeing dragged the Dow down.
Soft Commodities Firming
The US Equities market continued its melt up +.75%, on average, hitting new all time highs in three out of key benchmarks while interest rates sold off hard after a dismal bond auction.
All That Glitters - Sunday, July 7
The performance of US Equities markets was strong, up over +2% on average for the week. Meanwhile IWM confirmed a bull phase on excellent volume. Gold sold off Friday but held onto its breakaway gap put in a few weeks ago and still strongly in play.
Is Grandpa For Real
The US Equities markets was a mixed bag as the Dow, NASDQ 100, and the S&P 500 closed down on the week. Meanwhile the IWM which has been lagging since the fall of 2018 came alive Friday, rallying +1.6% and closed in an unconfirmed bullish phase.
A Golden Market Memo?
US Equities markets digested gains from early June and ended the weekup about +.6% on average. The message is mixed with cyclical sectors not following the key indexes price performance. Emerging markets submerged while soft commodities firmed.
Not Your Ordinary Black Swan
This month, US equities suffered one of their worst Mays on record and it's something not to ignore. Risk Gauges remain 100% negative and getting worse.
Geo-Political Stress And A Bear Flag
US Equities got hit yet again, led by Grandpa Russell, (IWM​) which tanked -2.4% on week. The trade war with China escalated, as did tensions with Iran which sent Oil (USO) up almost +2%. Stocks went into a nasty retreat on a global basis.
