Bullish … rating of 7 (0 - 4 is bearish, 5 is neutral, 6 - 10 is bullish).
Virus, virus, virus – good news, bad news, good news – and so goes the market. The buildup of bad news concerning the number of new virus cases in more than a dozen states led the market to dive more than 1,800 Dow points on Thursday of last week. Since then, we have had two days of recovery based on good virus news and looks like it will be a third. Today’s news is that steroids have been proven effective in reducing the inflammation from the virus, and thus in reducing deaths.
Our stocks are recovering from the sell-off very well. The market was down <8.8%> and is now up +4.4% from the lows. Our portfolios and rising correspondingly. I expect that as the market continues to fight its way upward, that our portfolios will do the same.
