CYBER MONDAY COUNTDOWN CLOCK
Some VERY cool surprises coming in a couple of weeks.
Great Morning !
Be careful of Ferguson grand jury out anytime. Doubt it will affect the stock market much other than one quick initial reaction.
Closing Prices From Yesterday
Yesterday and Today
Important Reminder for POT:
The office is going back over the POT trades and updating the files, so when you go into the POT portion of our website you can click on any trade (trade #160 for example) and get the detailed history from beginning to end. How cool is that? You asked us to do this, so we are.
Another quiet day but the ranges are getting slightly larger.
TSLA – News that a major US automaker announced today that they are “making a Tesla for the masses” help send this stock down almost $10.
NFLX was down $18. The only reason I could find for this was that they canceled the Bill Cosby show.
The Fed announced its rate decision that really didn’t say anything, and left analysts counting how many times they said “significant” or “near”. It initially sent bonds higher (after being down), but when sifting through the words bonds went right back down. This caused the markets modest gains to turn into modest losses.
I would bet a fair amount that the grand jury is going to announce today. They most likely want the news out before the weekend when the protestors have more free time.
President Obama is going to announce tonight that he has not interest in consulting with the Senate or Congress on immigration reform and is going to pass an executive action. This will not be likely a big event for the markets (as the people are already here), but it could have some negative impact on the markets UNTIL it is has been done. Anything for more democratic voters after this last election, huh? Lol.
Ferguson and Obama are both about to happen – not have already happened. With good news about to be announced the approach is “buy the rumor and sell the fact”. When it is bad news the reverse is true. So I suspect there will be pressure to the downside tomorrow provided the economic numbers are neutral.
But let’s face it…this is a tough call right now. It is a lot easier to predict an up market if the markets are shaking off really bad news and not going anywhere. It is easy to predict a down market is the markets are stagnant against great news. No news and no movement….that is tougher.
