Are the Growling Bears About to Get Fed?

Shares

We’re closing out another week chock full of all-time highs in the major indices. On Thursday, we had a short-lived scare with futures sinking and the VIX jumping 20% in early trading.

Do Traders Love the Russell Rocket?

Shares

For most of September, stock market sentiment has been very bullish as indices made new highs. But with this week’s astounding surge in the Russell 2000, have the bulls truly gone crazy? Some traders believe this could be the start of a new “risk-on trade” into year-end, while others think this is the calm before the storm […]

Did Breaking SPX 2500 Put a Spell on the Bulls?

Shares

Last week, sentiment among traders went all-out bullish as the SPX flirted with the 2500 mark for the first time ever. Subsequently, the SPX grinded up to set a new all-time high at 2508.85 before backing down just a bit. So let’s see what’s changed this week. Are traders encouraged by a more hawkish Fed? Do they care at […]

The Bulls Are Coming Out of Their Caves

Last Friday, traders sentiment was right smack-in-the-middle neutral, perfectly reflecting the back and forth action in the market. On Tuesday, the SPX started on a very weak note, trading down to 2428.20 before the dip buyers stepped in, putting us as high as 2478.26 on Thursday. With this big rebound behind us, let’s see if […]
