12:00 TUESDAY – Bi-Weekly Market Report #228 – 1/17/24

by Robert Holman |

STOCK MARKET RATING (THE BIG PICTURE) … 6.5 (1-4 bearish, 5 neutral, 6-9 bullish).  We have entered a bullish phase with Fed Chairman Powell acknowledging that a monetary policy shift is ahead which will lead to multiple interest rate cuts in 2024.

The main story of the last two years has been the Federal Reserve and its interest rate policy.  Recently, the market has responded rapidly to the discussion of interest rate cuts somewhere down the line, assumedly this year.

The restraint I’ve shown in being bullish (6.5 rating is bullish, but not extremely so) is paying off as the market responded perhaps too enthusiastically to the Fed news.  We are at something of a short-term technical top at a point of investor concern.  Money has not yet started it’s upcoming massive reversal - coming out of money market funds, T-bills and short term interest rate vehicles and back into stocks.

As the market dips, we are getting an opportunity to buy at better prices.

PORTFOLIOS … After reading this report, if you are not sure what to do to take advantage of these conditions, you may go to: to send me a secure email, and I’ll reply with the information you need.

TO MY CLIENTS … THANK YOU FOR YOUR TRUST.  We’ve had great success since we started this RIA in mid-2018 and are doing better than the market since that period.
