Sunday Morning Yoga

The market rallied today. The Dow gained almost +100 points! SPX added +8.21 points, and Nasdaq jumped another +15.58!

For example, GOOG closed down 0.84 points, BIDU lost almost 12, AMZN was flat, AAPL slid 0.41, and [...]

Market Forecast for Week of 9/24 (Part II): Sector Watch

XLF (financials) XLF is looking more and more interesting. Its daily MAs are now in a bullish formation with 10- above 20- above 30-day MA. The MACD has moved into the positive territory. I still like GS and MA. MA has been lagging, but, perhaps more of a reason to watch it, ’cause more potential [...]
