Weekly Market Perspectives – 09/28-10/02

Weekly Market Commentary –   All appeared lost this past week as it early in the week it appeared as though the market were heading for a sell off after breaking out of the recent consolidation.

Eat what you kill

This past week I had a great conversation with trader and founder of Stockscores.com Tyler Bollhorn for the podcast. In our chat we talk about this idea I call the “fallacy of setting daily trading goals”, which I’ve written about here.

Weekly Market Perspectives – 09/21-09/25

Weekly Market Commentary –   This week we saw major fireworks in the Builders and Healthcare sectors (as we’ll detail more below) but the overall market indices continued to consolidate in the range highlighted in yellow. All of the major levels we outlined the past few weeks have held so the following scenario is still in play. We see 2 possible scenarios of which […]

Weekly Market Perspectives – 09/14-09/18

Weekly Market Commentary –   This week’s price action was topped off by the FOMC announcement on Thursday.  As was the case with all FOMC announcements all eyes were firmly fixed on not just the announcement but to the market’s reaction of the announcement.

Weekly Market Perspectives – 09/07-09/11

Weekly Market Commentary –   With the shortened trading week, this week’s price action could have best been characterized as a period of consolidation, as the major indices closed near where they opened. All in all a slightly positive end to the week as the buyers were able to close the week slightly higher. At this […]

Weekly Market Perspectives – 08/31-09/04

Weekly Market Commentary –   The Gap fill game. This week’s price action could have been characterized as market pinball as the major market indices bounced back and forth filling the unfilled gaps.  The SPY retraced and tested the 50% level of its most recent swing and held, which is near term bullish. As I updated mid-week on the […]
