Quote of the Day

“An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.” - Victor Hugo

Changing Sentiment Again … Ugh!

By Chuck Butler


The weather has finally turned consistently warm here in the Midwest, which means I’m back outside all the time on the Butler Patio! So if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and say hi! If you want an earful on any topic you'd like to discuss, sit and stay awhile. You won’t be disappointed! Ha!



Daily Recap

Overseas markets sold off hard today over the inevitable return of trade war and N. Korea summit worries.  Guess what will follow that?  You got it - another day of optimism.  And so these markets go. But today, in Asia and Europe anyway, stocks got hammered.  The Asia Dow fell 0.8% and the STOXX 600 fell 1.10%, with every major exchange finishing with serious losses.



Call the Cops

by Jon S. Strebler


Last week witnessed a couple of big breakouts, and the authorities have been alerted.  In those cases, “the authorities” refers to those of us who write about investment markets with a focus on technical analysis.  You see – the big breakouts occurred in the gold and the small-cap equities sectors. 



Short-Term Trend is Once Again Bullish

By Matthew Kerkhoff


It’s been a painful and frustrating year for equities. After a massive 7% rally to start the year, major averages peaked at the end of January and began their volatile descent. Four months later, we’re finally starting to see signs of stabilization.


Numerous geopolitical events have played a role in the price action we’ve seen over the past few months, but it has been the prospect of global trade wars that has stolen the show. Markets hate uncertainty, and trade wars are the epitome of uncertainty.
