STOCK MARKET RATING (THE BIG PICTURE) … 5.0 (1-4 bearish, 5 neutral, 6-9 bullish). No change – seems like up trends are being mostly offset by down trends, with modest gains over the cycle. Have patience. Uncertainty surrounding the severity and timing of a possible recession is leading to caution on the part of many investors.
After a series of up days, the DJIA experienced a series of down days (11 of 17) before resuming a rally that appears to be in its third day. An uptrend has resulted from the higher highs and higher lows during this oscillation process. The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ are trending better than the DJIA.
Patience in buying and selling is being rewarded.
