12:00 TUESDAY – Stock Market Report #126 – 8/3/21

by Robert Holman | The Defensive Advisor |

INSIDE: Current market rating, the economy, and a free offer.

MARKET RATING Now at 6 (where 0 - 4 is bearish, 5 is neutral, 6 - 10 is bullish). I’m still seeking opportunistic profits but I’m wary the market pendulum will soon be swinging back in the opposite direction. As predicted by this report in mid-March, the market is still moving sideways-up (sideways at times with an upward bias over time). The pace of reopening economy continues to be of concern with new Covid cases popping up everywhere and possibly slowing down the recovery.

ECONOMY The three primary worries are: new Covid cases causing a slowdown in the recovery; persistent inflation that may not ease up as the Fed expects; and a possible increase in interest rates by the bond market. These concerns have nor brought the market down yet.

STOCKS … Picking stocks that will perform strongly in this environment remains challenging, yet good opportunities still exist. Selection and timing are all important.
