“The Big Picture” – October 2014

In this month’s email update you will find my latest thoughts on the markets.

The month of October was a rough month for the markets with all the major stock indexes dropping anywhere from 7% to 15% and virtually turning around overnight and recovering all the losses with most making new highs.

You notice in the video how the market found support right at our blue support line on the daily chart. It doesn’t always work out that great but, support lines are ;put on the charts sometimes weeks or months before they are even touched. And this was a good sign to see the S&P 500 bounce right where expected.

As always, if you have any question or comments, send them my way.

“The Big Picture” – September 2014

 

In this month’s email update you will find my latest thoughts on the markets.

The month of September was a tough month for the markets with all the major stock indexes down and that even includes the bond markets.

Nothing to be critically alarmed at this point, but as always I will be watching it closely and will send out an update when warranted.

As always, if you have any question or comments, send them my way.

“The Big Picture” – August 2014

v

 

Last month was a down month for the stock market, however, we bounce back nicely in the month of August.

This is why I made this comment at the end of  July…

“July was a tough time for the stock markets with pretty much everything down except for bonds. But, don’t push the panic button just yet.”

As has been the routine last year or so, the market had a small pullback and bounce up sharply to new all time highs!

Will it continue?

I doubt it!  Because markets don’t go in only one direction and we have been climbing for quite a while without a correction.

But, as I said last month… Don’t push the panic button just yet, because the market can continue upward for quite a while before we get that drop everyone is expecting. By being tactical you can make adjustments when they are warranted.

“The Big Picture” – July 2014

 

July was a tough time for the stock markets with pretty much everything down except for bonds. But, don’t push the panic button just yet. The stock markets have been on a very strong climb for quite some time and I do believe that the markets will correct sometime in the future, we just don’t want to guess and forecast that this latest downturn is the beginning of the next big crash.

As you will see in the video, the charts are showing that we are in a short term down trend, but we have been here before several times in the last couple of years.  So, let’s let the markets give us a few signals that the larger trend has changed before we panic.

“The Big Picture” – June 2014

The markets were very cooperative in June.

Most climbed higher, with small caps (small company stocks) the best performer.

In this new video, I discuss the markets in general as well as my thoughts on the rest of the year.
