ay, it will then become the new support.

I'm holdin' my cards tight and waiting this thing out.
Just playing with the math, I see 2490 as a potential stopping point, but my 2700 isn't completely out of the question.

Traders are fairly bearish on the Nasdaq though. Commercials are short almost 2:1, vs. small traders who are long by almost the same ratio. Guess who I think is right?

Earnings are the best that they have been since 2011.
MORE IMPORTANTLY.... Forward guidance is not being lowered, instead raised !
This market is going higher.
We are in record territory right now.
Trump is doing all the right things to enhance growth.
The deficit is the only caveat, but if 3% growth actually occurs like the Munchkin says it will, that will not only stop the deficit from increasing, it will start to lower it.
It may take 3-5 years to realize that, as it will take that much time to filter down into the economy, but this policy will , imo, foster that.
Think Kennedy and Regan eras.

i could use some good news today.

Mrs. DAB just had some dental work - $5k

our reverse osmosis pump just crapped out, new one about $5-$7k

on the flip side, the day's good news is that new mailboxes (gang type) are being installed today. no more going 10 miles to the PO to get the mail.

It looks like 2385~ is resistance, but, if it closes above that on Friday, it will then become the new support.

I'm holdin' my cards tight and waiting this thing out.
Tomorrow will tell the tale.
If the S&P closes above 2385, resistance, it'll have closed higher week over week and month over month which is good for the longs.

I don't know much about the stock market, but I once heard a stockbroker say when asked what high number would make him nervous, he gave a number where he would be nervous, but he said would be so nervous he would be buying more stocks.

UuuuWeee !!

S&P closed at 2400 today.
By no means a breakout, but higher than last week and above resistance....
Now we wait to see if 2385 holds next week.
The market is climbing a wall of worry and attempting to shake weak hands out.
Onward and upward !!

2385 held with a 2390 close today.
Lower than last week's close of 2400, however above resistance.

Commercials still neutral on the futures. 461K contracts long, 472K short. @ roughly $600,000 a contract, that's real money parked there. No change on the Nasdaq- Commercials are short by a margin of about 2:1. Only 19K long vs. 37K contracts short- shows you where the real money is (It's the S&P 500 silly).

Chart still looks OK. Nothing that makes me want to run away screaming.

Seems like a good time to pick this thread back up. Profits up, markets up (and pretty much ignoring all the Wash DC trauma and drama). That's an important clue- Big Money has a terrific filter for news vs. stuff that actually counts.

On the Commitments of Traders, 435K contracts long, 459K contracts short. Nothing to be overly concerned about there. One thing I did catch though- on the Healthcare index (yes, they can trade futures in that too), Commercials are short by a margin of 3:1. Tells me they see changes coming down the line, and it won't be to the Health Care Industry's benefit.

Intraday reversal today, rallied then sold back off. Time for traders to start paying attention.

On the other hand, a record high was made for the Dow & S&P today and then the pull back. This has happened consistently for weeks now. It's called climbing the wall of worry.
Let's talk on Friday after the close. The S&P is only one point from Friday's close of 2477.
Remember... The trend is your friend but your heads up is much appreciated.
I'm predicting an October correction.
