Weekly Performance and what drove the markets.

Tomorrows stock market open- outlook.

The forecast for the U.S. stock market.




Oil-gas-distillate prices, geopolitical events, a slowing housing sector,  a spending pullback by the consumer, earnings & outlook [guidance] will continue to play an important role for traders and investors in deciding their buy/sell strategy.

Note: Any news item can immediately affect the market, either in a  positive or negative way. The Barometer doesn't immediately calculate 'surprise' news that may be released. Therefore, always be prepared for the unexpected.

Traders and investors will keep watch on indicators such as the nonfarm payrolls report, productivity report, PPI - CPI inflation data, GDP, and jobless new claims.  These reports will produce volatility in the markets if the data is stronger or weaker than expected.

Traders and investors are very well adapted to analyzing what the Fed will and wont do. Economical data reports, such as above, that are unexpected and Fed-talk as well as minutes from FOMC meetings, all, can cause volatility.


The Market Memo is a general advisory and should be viewed as an opinion of the future of the U.S. equities market. Use the Barometer forecast "bug" for a more accurate forecast along with the daily home page commentary. Although market conditions seem to move fast, when it comes to identifying the Barometer technical conditions of the market, it moves slower than one would think.
