Market Summary


The indexes were hot last week with the S&P 500, NYSE, and Dow each hitting fresh all-time highs. The NASDAQ is an eyelash away from all-time highs and is sitting just below resistance at 14175. The Russell 2000 is the lagging behind but is consolidating tightly around its 50sma.

I think there is a strong chance of a short term pullback and just like in the past, a “pull back” could be something that lasts only for a few days and for a small percentage. If this pullback doesn’t happen immediately, I feel it will likely happen this week or next. Here’s why:

3 of the 5 major indexes hit all time highs but the are also extended to the upside. If they are to take a breather, it makes sense for them to do it while the NASDAQ is just below major resistance. There was a major spike in the number of New Highs on the NYSE on Friday 306. When the NYSE has had large spikes in the number of new highs, it has coincided w/ short term pullbacks occurring w/in a few days to a week or so max. Finally, while there are a good amount of stocks on the Trade Ideas list at 28, none of the ideas making it to the focus list scored above a 7 on the Trade Gauntlet. That tells me that there’s at least a couple of flaws in the bases.

My plan to start the week is to only add a little bit to my positions in TWTR and UBER if they continue to follow through.

DISCLAIMER: Futures, stocks, and options trading involves a substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for every investor. The valuation of futures, stocks, and options may fluctuate, and, as a result, clients may lose more than their original investment. The impact of seasonal and geopolitical events is already factored into market prices. The highly leveraged nature of futures trading means that small market movements will have a great impact on your trading account and this can work against you, leading to large losses, or can work for you, leading to large gains.
If the market moves against you, you may sustain a total loss greater than the amount you deposited into your account. You are responsible for all the risks and financial resources you use and for the chosen trading system. You should not engage in trading unless you fully understand the nature of the transactions you are entering into and the extent of your exposure to loss. If you do not fully understand these risks you must seek independent advice from your financial advisor.
All trading strategies are used at your own risk.

Loss-limiting strategies such as stop-loss orders may not be effective because market conditions or technological issues may make it impossible to execute such orders.
