MARKET … My rating opinion remains 8.0 (0 - 4 is bearish, 5 is neutral, 6 - 10 is bullish). The market remains bullish, but overbought and overvalued. Mr. Market will most likely continue moving sideways-up, with volatility.
ECONOMY AND MARKETS … April numbers are showing significant improvement over 1st Quarter data. The most recent data for jobs and retail sales were outstanding. Everything is going pretty much as expected. The primary concerns are inflation and interest rates, both of which are increasing from excessive government spending. However, core inflation last months was 0.3%, while the 10-year T-Note rate remains around 1.6% +/- 0.05%. No significant economic numbers are will be released until late next week, and the markets could drift lower during the intervening time period, before responding to data releases in late-April, early-May.
MARKET CONCLUSION … No change. The future looks encouraging for the economy and for stock prices. Certain sectors will benefit more than others. Adjust your portfolio accordingly.
