Wall Street Likley To Start The New Year Off Right

Wall Street and the Stock Market will likely start 2014 off right

stocks, ETF, Daily Market Wrap, SPX, SPX Chart, NYSEARCA:DIA, NYSEARCA:SPY, NASDAQ:QQQ, NYSEARCA:IWM, NYSEARCA:USOThe Fortune Teller Speaks:

I predict a stock market rise today as investors will likely start 2014 off with a bang.

All Eyes on Wall Street:

All Eyes on Wall Street are likley to be a little glazed and hungover due to the New Years holiday and excessive stock market records for 2013.  All in all, Wall Street appears to be in a state of higher priced euphoria, and when that wave stops is anyone’s guess.  All I can say is that stock markets will decline one day, and when they do we will likely be in a bit of pain.

We are also due for the Weekly Jobless claims, Market PMI, Construction Spending, and ISM reports today, all of which could derail market sentiment if the news is bad.

Hindsight is a Beach and We’re Playing on It:

Before New Years Eve we were partially correct on Monday with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) rising .16%.  On December 3rd, all three indexes rose substantially to new record highs, with the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) rising .40%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) rising .44%, and the NASDAQ (NASDAQ:QQQ) rising .54%.  What a year for 2013 and what will 2014 bring??

Fun Fact:

I just saw the new flick “The Wolf of Wall Street.”  Crazy story.

Its raining Bulls:

The bulls are likely going to charge today.  I can feel it in the air:)

Stocks Close 2013 with More Record Highs

Courtesy of John Nyaradi.

Stocks finished 2013 with new record highs, as the S&P 500 closed-out the year with a 30 percent advance.

Stocks finished a bullish year with more record highs, as the S&P 500 capped-off its best year since 1997 with a 30-percent advance.  Two upbeat Stocks, ETF, Daily Market Wrap, SPX, SPX Chart, NYSEARCA:DIA, NYSEARCA:SPY, NASDAQ:QQQ, NYSEARCA:IWM, NYSEARCA:USO economic reports got the New Year’s Eve party going early.  The Conference Board reported that its Consumer Confidence Index for December climbed to 78.1 from 72 in November.  Economists were expecting a less-significant increase to 76.  The S&P / Case-Shiller Home Price Index was basically in-line with economists’ expectations, as its 20-City Composite Index climbed 13.6 percent, compared with an expected 13.7 percent increase.  The report was based on a three-month average from August through October.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) picked up 72 points to finish Tuesday’s trading session at a record-high close at 16,576.66 for a 0.44 percent advance, after hitting a record intraday high of 16,588.25.  The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) advanced 0.40 percent to a record-high close at 1,848.36, after reaching a record intraday high of 1,849.44.

The Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) surged 0.61 percent to finish at 3,592.  The Russell 2000 (NYSEARCA:IWM) climbed 0.26 percent to a record-high close of 1,163.64.

In other major markets, oil (NYSEARCA:USO) dropped 0.59 percent to close at $35.32.

On London’s ICE Futures Europe Exchange, February futures for Brent crude oil declined 31 cents (0.28 percent) to $110.90/bbl. (NYSEARCA:BNO).

February gold futures advanced $1.20 (0.10 percent) to $1,205.00 per ounce (NYSEARCA:GLD).  Gold and Silver Stocks – Will They Ever Rise Again?

Transports accelerated across the 2013 finish line on Tuesday, as the Dow Jones Transportation Average (NYSEARCA:IYT) ended the year with a record-high close at $131.10 after hitting a record intraday high of $132.14.

In Japan, the stock market was closed on New Year’s Eve (NYSEARCA:EWJ).

Stocks advanced in China as the government finally ended its IPO freeze.  Shares in brokerage firms led the advance after the government approved five initial purchase offerings on Tuesday.  The Shanghai Composite Index surged 0.88 percent to 2,115 (NYSEARCA:FXI).  Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index advanced 0.26 percent to 23,306 (NYSEARCA:EWH).

Stocks in Holding Pattern for New Year

Courtesy of John Nyaradi.

Stocks held close to the breakeven level on Monday, although the Dow picked up 25 points, as 2013 drew toward a close.

Stocks managed to hang on to most of their monthly gains through Monday’s session, as the S&P 500 dipped by only 0.2 percent, as it is stocks, ETF, Daily Market Wrap, SPX, SPX Chart, NYSEARCA:DIA, NYSEARCA:SPY, NASDAQ:QQQ, NYSEARCA:IWM, NYSEARCA:USOexpected to close-out December with a 2 percent advance, while wrapping-up 2013 with a 29-percent jump, making this year its best since 1997.

Monday’s important economic news came from the National Association of Realtors.  The NAR reported that its Pending Home Sales Index (sales not yet closed but agreed-to by contract) increased for the first time in six months for a 0.2 percent advance to 101.7 in November.  Unfortunately, economists had been expecting a move by slightly more than one percent.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) picked up 25 points to finish Monday’s trading session at 16,504 for a 0.16 percent advance.  Nevertheless, it was the first time the Dow failed to hit a record intraday high after a seven-session streak of doing so.  The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) slipped 0.02 percent to close at 1,841, closing-out a five-day streak of record intraday highs.

The Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) declined 0.11 percent to finish at 3,570.  The Russell 2000 (NYSEARCA:IWM) retreated 0.04 percent to end the day at 1,160.

In other major markets, oil (NYSEARCA:USO) dropped 0.86 percent to close at $35.53.

On London’s ICE Futures Europe Exchange, February futures for Brent crude oil declined 96 cents (0.86 percent) to $111.22/bbl. (NYSEARCA:BNO).

February gold futures declined $17.80 (1.47 percent) to $1,196.20 per ounce (NYSEARCA:GLD).  Gold and Silver Stocks – Will They Ever Rise Again?

Transports remained stuck in snowbound traffic on Monday, as the Dow Jones Transportation Average (NYSEARCA:IYT) was unchanged from Friday’s close at $131.10.

In Japan, the exchange rate for the yen continued to be the dominant factor in stock market activity.  Japanese stocks advanced as the yen weakened to 105.41 per dollar during Monday’s trading session in Tokyo.  A weaker yen causes Japanese exports to be more competitively priced in foreign markets (NYSEARCA:FXY).  The Nikkei 225 Stock Average advanced 0.69 percent to 16,291 (NYSEARCA:EWJ).

Stock Markets To Have Two More Days

Courtesy of John Nyaradi.

Stock markets are likely to rise today as we inch towards the New Year

stocks, ETF, Daily Market Wrap, SPX, SPX Chart, NYSEARCA:DIA, NYSEARCA:SPY, NASDAQ:QQQ, NYSEARCA:IWM, NYSEARCA:USOThe Fortune Teller Speaks:

I predict a stock market rise today, as the bulls seem determined to ride out 2013 in green.

All Eyes on Wall Street:

All eyes are now focused on the record setting 2013 for stock markets, but also on the underlying gut feeling that these stock markets will decline, badly.  What goes up must ultimately come down, and many Wall Street analysts are definitely nervous for 2014.  In the short term, we are dealing with new records on the baord coupled with minimal trading volume; in the long term things are not looking that rosey for Wall Street.  Today also brings us a Pending Home Sales report at 10:00 AM EST which will likely not sway investors one way or another.

Oddly enough, the VIX Index or the “fear index” as it is widely known, started to rise last week, suggesting lower prices for equity markets ahead.  Again, I think the Bulls are ready to celebrate New Years, but the Bears will not be hungover come New Years Day.

Hindsight is a Beach and We’re Playing on It:

Last week was a positive week as we saw more records posted from the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY), the Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) and the NASDAQ 100 (NASDAG:QQQ).  Last Monday was our last stock market prediction in which we were correct across the board.  Hopefully the Bulls will be in our favor again today.

Fun Fact:

Check out this car made out of over 500,000 legos and runs on compressed air!

May the Bulls be With Us!

May the bulls be with us this second to last day of the year.  I think we need more records!

Stocks Climb as Santa Brings Upbeat Economic Data

Courtesy of John Nyaradi.

Stocks continued their routine of reaching new record highs after Tuesday’s economic reports beat expectations.

Stocks climbed higher on Tuesday as Santa brought more upbeat economic news.  The Commerce Department’s Census Bureau reported that Stocks, ETF, Daily Market Wrap, SPX, SPX Chart, NYSEARCA:DIA, NYSEARCA:SPY, NASDAQ:QQQ, NYSEARCA:IWM, NYSEARCA:USONew Home Sales in November were at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of 464,000.  Economists were expecting a SAAR of 450,000.  Although the number represented a decline from October’s SAAR of 474,000, the November reading is slightly more than 16 percent above the November 2012 SAAR of 398,000.

The Census Bureau also reported the new orders for durable goods increased 3.5 percent during November to $241.6 billion.  Economists were expecting a less-significant. 2.0 percent advance.  So-called “core capital goods” which exclude defense spending and aircraft purchases, rose 4.5 percent, for the most significant advance since January.  Core capital goods expenditures are seen as a forward-looking economic indicator, which signal whether businesses plan to expand in the near future.

Transports had to dodge Santa’s sleigh as they continued to fly higher on Tuesday, while the Dow Jones Transportation Average (NYSEARCA:IYT) climbed 0.36 percent.

Stocks Get Another Boost from Economic Data

Courtesy of John Nyaradi.

Stocks continued their routine of reaching new record highs after Monday’s economic reports encouraged investors.

Economic data pushed stock prices higher again on Monday, after Friday’s third estimate of third-quarter GDP from the Bureau of Economic Stocks, ETF, Daily Market Wrap, SPX, SPX Chart, NYSEARCA:DIA, NYSEARCA:SPY, NASDAQ:QQQ, NYSEARCA:IWM, NYSEARCA:USOAnalysis showed GDP expansion at a 4.1 percent annual rate.  On Monday, the final Thompson Reuters / University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index for December held to the preliminary reading of 82.5, compared with November’s 75.1.  Nevertheless, the result fell a tad short of economists’ expectations for an increase to 83.0.

Also on Monday, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released its Personal Income and Outlays report for November.  The report indicated that “Real PCE” (personal consumption expenditures, adjusted to remove price changes) increased by 0.5 percent in November, consistent with economists’ expectations.  October’s increase was 0.4 percent.  Although personal income increased by 0.2 percent in November compared with October’s -0.1 percent, the November reading fell short of economists’ expectations for an increase of 0.5 percent.

The Chicago Federal Reserve National Activity Index (CFNAI) for November climbed to +0.60 from October’s -0.07.  More important, the CFNAI’s three month moving average rose to +0.25 from October’s +0.12 for the highest reading since February of 2012.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) picked up 73 points to finish Monday’s trading session at a new, record-high close of 16,294.61 for a 0.45 percent advance, after hitting a record intraday high of 16,318.11.  The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) climbed 0.53 percent to finish at a new, record-high closing level of 1,827.99, after hitting a record intraday high of 1,829.75.

The Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) jumped 1.08 percent to finish at 3,569.  The Russell 2000 (NYSEARCA:IWM) soared 0.94 percent to end the day with a record-high close at 1,157.22 after hitting a new record intraday high of 1,213.49.  Welcome to the Santa Claus Rally

Stock Market Bulls Likely To Pull Santa’s Sleigh

I predict a stock market rise as investors go bullish on the Holidays and New Year 2014.

All Eyes on Wall Street:

All eyes will likely not be focused on Wall Street this week, as the Holiday season will lower stock trading volume.  Still, we are due out for a plethora of data this week, so both the bulls and the bears have a chance to shine.  Today is the day of the consumer for economic data, as we are expecting the Personal Income, Consumer Spending, Core PCE Price Index, and University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment reports in the morning.  With the largest shopping season of the year coming to a close, bad data could surely bring out the bears for some Christmas dinner.

Hindsight is a Beach and We’re Playing on It:

Last Friday we got waxed in our predictions, with the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) rising 48% to reach a new record, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (NYSEARCA:DIA) rising .26% to reach  new record, and the NASDAQ 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) rising 1.15%, not for a new record.  Investors appear frantic to make sure that we close out 2013 as high as possible, despite the fact that this market appears poised to roll over big time.

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.

Still, the stock market has been better over the last 10 (7%) an...
