07/15/2018: Markets were up for the week, as the Indices are going back up to re-test the January Highs. Failure of the broad Markets to push higher could indicate a lack of money for Stocks. Stock now have competition from higher Interest Rates and Commodity prices.
The NASDAQ 100 Index was able to get back up to the Highs on Friday with 3 of the 5 FAANG stocks leading. For the week, the Dow rose 2.29%, 1.79% for the Nasdaq and 1.51% for the S&P 500. The Long Term Trend on the Stock Markets is UP.
The Inflation Index (CRB) was down 2.18% and is struggling to hold Above the Green Line.
Bonds were mixed for the week but the weekly Money Wave is in the Red Zone. This could be forecasting Economic weakness.
