Special Report: Your Investing Guide for the Next Six Dangerous Stock Market Months (Complete with 14 picks)

Yikes. Does this market have enough volatility for you? And I think that volatility will only get worse over the next two to six months, I can't remember a market with so much potential to move up or down in big relatively short-term volatility as this one. Just as critical I can see each of […]

Downward momentum in stocks looks stalled–trend depends on news flow and the dollar

Today, Monday, September 28, as of 1:15 p.m. New York time the Standard & Poor's 500 was up 1.60% to trade at 3352.78. Along with Friday's 1.60% gain in the index, I think that shows the market's downward momentum stalled for the moment. Only for the moment, though, since there's just so much pending news […]

On Monday the Standard & Poor's 500 and the NASDAQ Composite hit new all-time highs on what I'm calling the Vaccine Put, the hope that we'll see the announcement of an approved coronavirus vaccine by early in 2021 or maybe even the end of 2020 or perhaps before the November elections. That would immediately lead […]
