Three Fundamental Reasons The Stock Market Can Break
The market has traded sideways for a week or so. I've been saying it's important to respect direction as a guide for trading. Still, I think there's three fundamental reasons building that can potentially drive the next move lower.
Fed Day Tomorrow: Bullish
We review tomorrow's Fed day and what's the next driver to the stock market.
Stock Market Didn't Notice COVID-19 Cases Accelerated - Bearish
The number of new COVID-19 cases accelerated in the recent data both globally and in the US. This pushes out timetables for people and economies getting back to normal. That causes market risk.
Stock Market And SPY: Mini Fed Taper And Second Half Demand Cliff
SPY is hugging my key levels. There's a quiet mini Fed taper going on. That opens up risk to stocks.
Fed Lightening Up Creates Stock Market Ceiling
The Fed has been very aggressive, as we know. They may be telling us through these moves that: SPY 280s, let the market trade, 250s and support the heck out of it.
Stock Market: Don't Want To Chase Here
The market closed higher than a key level for me 281 but it still is overbought after the run so I don't want to chase.
