This Market Needs A Rest…

Hopefully you had a wonderful long weekend, but now it’s back to work!

So, we just concluded one of the WORST quarters (if you’re a bull, otherwise, strike that – reverse it…) in stock market history. The follow-on? More of the same? Perhaps. However, the last three days of trading last week – though still bearish – seemed to show (to me at least) that a near term low is at hand.

It makes sense, we’ve been very bearish for some time. The Dow is below 10,000, the S&P 500 is very near the 1,000 mark and the NASDAQ… well, need I say more?

We all know that stocks do not trend in a straight line and even LeBron James needs a break now and then. So, with little economic news and even less market shaping earnings this week, I suspect that we may get a short-term bounce. A “relief” if you will. The big question is – will it last. My answer – like my answer to so many other things is – it depends. There are some signs of things improving within the European Union, there are some signs that the Chinese are more willing to take part in a global effort to bring health back to the worlds economies, and earnings are just around the corner. However, the bigger picture is still troublesome.

I suspect that this week will be one for the bulls, but unless we start to see some improvements in the core fundamentals of the world’s economies – we still need to stay very cautious.

I was with Options Animal for 18 months and learned so much useful information that I needed in order to trade options successfully. I am very satisfied with my experience working with them. There is an abundance of resources on their website and I was able to post questions to the coaches and other participants with responses that were quick and answered all my questions. It took a lot of hard work on my part to learn this but their education was top notch. They are a very professional company and I wish I could stay on with them but at the same time, I feel I’ve learned enough to move forward on my own. I highly recommend Options ns Animal to anyone who is truly wanting to learn to trade options
I found this to be an outstanding program - in-depth knowledge you cannot find anywhere else and the staff is always very supportive. I give it an A++.
