Again – The Bulls Need to Follow Through

Investor’s first readDaily edge before the open

DJIA: 17,9761
S&P 500: 2,086
Nasdaq  Comp.:4,947
Russell 2000:    1,257

After solid gains in the DJIA and S&P 500 yesterday, the market has recouped two-thirds of last week’s sharp losses. But today’s market will open lower. This looks more like a consolidation than a top formation.

Today’s Support is  DJIA 17,852 (S&P 500: 2,076; Nasdaq Comp.: 4,918)

Watch for buyers jumping on early weakness as a signal of a near-term attack on the upper end of the Feb./Mar. trading range of DJIA 17,600 – 18,200 (S&P 500: 2,040 – 2,115).
Looks like the Street is opting for more risk; speculation in small company stocks not far behind.

-The Fed and it’s first bump up in interest rates.

Concern that the U.S. economy is beginning to slump.
I really think the Street is stumped, bullish one day, bearish the next. That spells more risk, than reward except for the most nimble trader !!

Note: I discontinued my daily – before – open publishing of Investor’s first read on November 5, 2014, after 6 years (1.600 posts).  Future publishing will be on a less frequent basis and not always before the market opens. In the interim, I will publish as I see necessary as I craft a new format.
