February 19, 2018 The Week Ahead

The markets have bounced back after experiencing one of the fastest 10% declines in history. Overall, the market is still up year to date, despite fears of inflation increasing.

Was last week a dead cat bounce or did we get the 10% correction we needed for the bull market to continue?

Investors should continue to monitor inflation data, as well as earnings. Some key names reporting include Walmart, The Home Depot, and Apache Corporation.

The VIX closed at 19.46 on Friday, a steep decline from the Feb 6 high of 50.41.

December 17, 2017 The Week Ahead

The markets continue to soar higher as we approach Christmas and the end of year. Despite all this, cryptocurrencies and politics continue to steal the headlines. Last Sunday bitcoin futures were introduced, however, they’ve yet to curb volatility in the name.

Last Wednesday, the FOMC raised interest rates, as expected by most Wall Street Analysts.

A majority of the trading action has been in companies that have some loose affiliation to cryptocurrencies and blockchain. This trend should continue for the last few weeks of the trading season.

Some earnings worth noting this week include: Nike, Federal Express, and Micron.

The “fear index” closed at 9.40 on Friday, as it now sits near the 52-week lows.
