09/15/2019: Markets were up again for the week, as the Indices are discounting probable Good News soon from a FED Rate Cut and a meeting to resolve the Trade War. The S&P 500 Index is back up to the July High Resistance of 3028. The Small Caps and Transports which had been lagging the Markets, did some catch up as both were up almost 5 %.
Many do not understand the difference between the Short Term FED Funds Rate and the Rate on 10 Year Note (used for setting Mtg. Rates)… Fed Funds should be cut next week from 2.25% to 2.00% so the Markets are excited. But the 10 Year Note which is based on demand, just had its’ Yield rise from 1.43% to 1.9% this month. That is a 32 % increase in rates this month from FEAR disappearing!
The 2 FEAR Trades (Bonds and Gold) were both down again for the week, as the FEAR is diminishing. Bonds and Gold still have High Momentum and could re-test the Highs again after correcting down a little more. (See Watch List ). Maybe some profit taking in Stocks when the FED lowers the Fed Funds rate by 1/4 point on Wednesday (GOOD NEWS).
For the week the Dow was up 1.60%, the S&P 500 was up 1.02%, and the Nasdaq 100 was up 0.50%. The Long Term Trend on the Stock Markets is UP.
The Inflation Index (CRB) was up 1.26% and is Below the Green Line, indicating Economic Weakness.
Bonds were down 6.34% for the week and are Above the Green Line, indicating Economic Weakness.
The US DOLLAR was down 0.22%, but near a 3 year High.
