Too Far Too Fast??

Volatility certainly seems to be the name of the game lately. The stock markets went down very fast and bounced back (somewhat) very fast. The Leading Nasdaq Composite made it back to where it started the New Year – the start of the New Decade. Remember the Roaring 20’s?

Risk Levels Continue to Increase

Just like September last year, we made another new all-time high in the S&P 500 in May around 2950 but could not hold it. Like last year, we have broken through support at 2800 again and are currently looking down at 2700 –a Point & Figure sell signal.
