6:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

After three week’s of straight gains, all three of the major averages booked a loss this past week with the Dow falling just below 27,000 and the S&P 500 slipping slightly below 3000.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat.”
– Will Rogers


Chinese-American trade tensions took a backseat for the most past as other geopolitical issues rose such as the Saudi oil attack. There was also the Fed’s rate decision which was clearly the most important event of the week.

All three of the indices did hold above their 50-day lines. A close below there would have been a bearish sign.

The Dow Jones Industrials took the brunt of the week’s losses. The index dropped –284 points or +1.05% this past week. The blue-chips closed Friday at 26,935, a little more than a percentage point above their 50-day moving average of 26,619.

As I stated last week, the obvious event to watch for this week was to see if the major averages will punch through to new highs. That did not become the case, and instead, all we got was sideways to negative action for the indexes.

From a technical perspective, all three of the major averages are just above support of their respective 50-day moving averages, and it would be healthy to have some continued orderly consolidation here. It would be key to see the indices hold above those noted areas of support.

This week is slated to be a busy week for key economic releases. First, we’ll have the Markit Manufacturing and Services PMIs on Monday, along with Eurozone PMIs. Then on Tuesday, investors will see the Consumer Confidence number before the final GDP on Thursday. Friday, there’s the Core PCE Price Index, personal spending, and the durable goods report to look forward to.
