- More of the same as SOX, RUTX surge.
- DJ30 actually taking a breather as NASDAQ and SP500 make important tests
of the prior highs.
- Even as some early leaders test, other sectors are breaking higher.
- Market showing plenty of leadership as money rotates through the sectors.
- Shorter week with Thanksgiving may not show a definitive change.

DJ30 rallies 5.8% off its pre-election low, SP400 9%. There was supposed
to be a market crash. Wish it had as our plan was to buy the selloff. But
not. Ford announces it will not move its Kentucky plant to Mexico after
all. Apple says it is considering manufacturing iPhones in the US. What
happens next? Mexico agrees to a wall? Hey, it might happen, just not
between the US and Mexico but between Mexico and Central America. And maybe
the US will HELP pay for that one. Nothing seems too crazy right now, does
it? Or maybe it seems crazy, but that is not stopping it from happening.

We will see. Friday the market, at least part of it, finally took a
breather. DJ30 is working on a lateral move, holding its gains. The rest
of the market, however, continues higher with SOX leading the way with its
surge upside. RUTX as well.

SP500 -5.22, -0.24%
NASDAQ -12.46, -0.23%
DJ30 -35.89, -0.19%
SP400 0.04%
RUTX 0.47%
SOX 0.67%


A/D: NYSE -1.2:1, NASDAQ +1.2:1. Yes, pretty atrocious breadth but some
solid moves, e.g. semiconductors.

Money is chasing sectors, just not all at once. Thus some pretty weak
breadth but some pretty strong moves in groups of stocks such as the chips
and some techs last week. This while industrial equipment/machinery,
metals, financials -- the early leaders post-election -- consolidate the
gains. Heck, some are already in position to move higher after their tests,
e.g. BAC, LLNW, FCX -- there are a few.

There is quite a bit of talk about the rally being a one-hit wonder, a surge
that burns itself out. That may turn out to be the case, but looking at
sector after sector, stock after stock this weekend we see stocks not
rolling over but consolidating, setting up for their next moves upside. Of
course even as they do this, other stocks are surging as already noted.

Not that anything has changed yet, at least substantively. What we are
noticing, however, is a lot of new activity that is apparently in
anticipation of growth to come. Even CNBC commentators who are more left
leaning were describing optimism at the prospect of economic growth versus 8
years of no growth. That is the way they put it, not me.

I have talked with many small business heads who say that the phone is
ringing with customers planning to produce more, buy more, etc., all in
anticipation of growth. The ironic thing is that can be the very thing that
ignites it, then the tax changes, regulatory rollbacks, agency stand down
orders give it the fuel to really take hold and surge. We will see.



SOX: Surging 6 of 8 sessions to a new post-2000 high, adding another 0.67%
Friday. Some great moves from NVDA, LRCX, MU, and company is fueling the
chips upside. When the other indices started to take a breather, SOX hit
the accelerator.

RUTX: The small caps are fairly incredible. Eleven straight upside
sessions off the low from early November. At some point it has to run low
on gas and take a breather. Has not come to that point yet.

SP400: The midcaps rose 9 of 10 sessions prior to Friday. Managed a gain
to end the week but gapped to a tight doji. May be out of gas near term but
has not shown it. Likely tests before too long. A test of the last peak in
September at 1580ish would be pretty normal.

NASDAQ: After a 3-day rest through Monday, NASDAQ rallied to test the prior
high from September. Broke it on the Friday high, just could not hold it.
Faded to a modest loss on lower volume. Okay, a very critical test for
NASDAQ. It has made it to the prior highs similar to the dog catching the
car. Now what? A modest test through Wednesday and then a new break higher
would be great.

SP500: A solid, if on again off again, rally after the 3 day lateral test
into Monday. Rallied to the 2016 trendline on the Thursday and Friday
highs, faded to a loss Friday. SP500 is at the August all-time highs, and
similar to NASDAQ, after that consolidation that gave it the strength to
rally to this point, it now has to show it can break on through.

DJ30: After that surge higher into this past week, the Dow is testing and
resting, moving in a very tight lateral move, refusing to give up ground.
Many financial and metals stocks show the same action, moving laterally in a
tight range, being stingy with their gains.


Big Names: The FAANG still struggle overall but some rebounds. FB bombed
Monday but recovered to test the 200 day SMA Friday. AMZN rebounded all
week off its bomb lower, showing a tombstone doji Friday below the 20 day
EMA. AAPL bounced off the 200 day SMA. NFLX sold to the 50 day EMA, held
it, and is working laterally, trying to make the break higher. GOOG
recovered off its Monday selloff below the 200 day SMA, making it back to
the 50 day EMA.

Metals: Tight lateral moves post-surge. AKS, FCX -- setting up for new

Financial: Tight lateral moves for many here as well. BAC, JPM, GS, STT.

Chips: Solid moves. LRCX hit the target, faded back some. NVDA still
rallying. MU breaking higher again. AMAT as well. XLNX making a 1-2-3

Internet: LLNW testing a nice move. LIVE moved well last week.

Software: Some good moves and continued good setups. RHT surged though was
off Friday. BLKB has a good setup. VMW moved well last week. FFIV still
trending up the 10 day EMA.

Oil: Some still solid setups and moves. WLL working well. APC holding
support. RIG rallying nicely last week. PDS in great position to move

Biotech: Some big names still look solid, e.g. BIIB, CELG.

11 of 16 sessions over 1.0 on the close. 4 of 5 sessions back below 1.0
after a long streak over 1.0 on the close. That gave plenty of upside
impetus and the market is using it.

Bulls and Bears: Bears post their greatest numbers in months and stocks
then rally. Not at extreme levels either way, just working back toward each
other after diverging.

Bulls: 51.0 versus 42.9

Bears: 23.5 versus 25.7

Theory: When everyone is bullish and has put all their capital to work,
where does the ammunition to drive the market come from? There is always
new money to start a new year. After that is used will more money be
coming? That is the question.

Bonds (10 year): 2.34% versus 2.297%. Bonds continue to sell off here and
around the world. China, Saudi Arabia selling US Treasuries for their own
economic struggle reasons while Japan is buying its own bonds and US bonds
for its own economic struggles.

Historical: 2.297% versus 2.219% versus 2.22% versus 2.23% versus 2.14%

EUR/USD: 1.0587 versus 1.06500. Euro getting crushed the past two weeks.

USD/JPY: 110.905 versus 110.240. Still surging against the yen

Historical: 110.240 versus 109.07 versus 108.164 versus 107.455 versus
106.621 versus 106.814 versus 105.192 versus 101.286 versus 104.386 versus

100.75 versus 101.034 versus 101.045 versus 100.386

Oil: 46.36, +0.38. Continuing its recovery off the 200 day SMA test but
still a dog fight and the going is slow. More hope for an OPEC deal was
said to help Friday. Really needs it given a certain shale formation in the
Permian Basin is said to hold billions more barrels of oil. Billions. 10
to 20 billion.

Gold: 1208.70, -8.20. Gold tried to bounce early week, has failed, falling
to a lower low on this selling, though holding the mid-summer low. As noted
before, if inflation is supposed to result from the proposed economic plans,
why is gold selling while stocks related to growth surge? Because the
Phillips Curve the Fed and most 'in vogue' economists use is simply wrong.
Wrong, wrong, wrong.


After the launch higher pre- and post-election you would expect the stock
indices to test. RUTX and SP400 have been juggernauts, surging on a
stronger dollar and the prospect of improved business. Sure some carp about
the stronger dollar impacting earnings, but those are the big multinationals
that have had all the breaks, all of the favored regulations in this current
economy. The prospect of actual growth has shot the smaller cap stocks

Again, after such a surge you would expect a test. As noted, SP500 and
NASDAQ are at important tests of prior highs and this week will show their
strength in whether they test and if so, how they test.

Thing is, the stock sectors are testing, they are just doing it within the
overall indices. Financials, metals are holding their gains as they
consolidate while other groups push higher, e.g. software and chips. That
keeps the indices elevated even as they 'test.'

So, instead of expecting a pullback across the board we are looking at
stocks that are set up to move higher for new opportunities even as others
that led the charge consolidate. As noted earlier, some of those early
leaders are already in position to move higher again after their

Obviously we are looking at those for next week. Some can test farther
before they are ready, but the patterns are solid and we want to be ready of
they go ahead on and rally early week. Don't want to chase the bus but
instead by ready.

It is also Thanksgiving week with the market closed Thursday and open a half
session Friday. That may put a lid on the action upside or downside, but in
the past Thanksgiving week has delivered some fireworks. If we see some
good moves we will play them.

Have a great weekend!
