Weekend Review and Watchlist

Despite a late sell-off on Friday, the market put in a pretty solid bounce this week, reclaiming ground above its MA’s for a 1.5% gain. I’ve joked about wanting a letter other than a ‘V’, and I guess you should be careful what you wish for because it sure looks like we just traced out a …

Weekend Review and Watchlist

Just two weeks into 2015 and we’ve already seen some dramatic price action in global markets, most notably this week with the unprecedented actions of the Swiss National Bank and the subsequent volatility it produced in currency and fixed income markets. The shock of such a move is still being absorbed, and the true implications may take longer to …

Stocks To Watch

We had a lot of new signals this week both in the Marketfy portfolio and as additional ideas, and there are even more in this list that could justifiably be taken Monday. Although the broader market still has some work to do to recover its recent highs, the Healthcare/Biotech and Technology sectors still feature most strongly. Regardless of sector, I’ve …

Two weeks ago I showed a chart of the $SPY highlighting it was the fourth time in the last year that five weeks of gains had been given back in just one week. The end result again proved to be no different with the S&P building on last week’s gains to end a holiday-shortened week …

Weekend Review and Watchlist

This week I’m not going to dwell too much on what happened and why (as if I know), as by now I would be amazed if you didn’t already know the adventures of oil, Russia, and the Fed, or haven’t heard at least a dozen different takes on it. Rather, I will concentrate on where …

Weekend Review and Watchlist

Stocks took the proverbial elevator down this week, undoing 5 weeks of gains in one fast move. We’ve seen the ‘stairs up, elevator down’ action plenty of times before. Looking at the weekly chart of the $SPY this is the fourth such instance in the last year. So far there’s nothing to suggest this will be …
