By: David Moenning

The onset of earnings season appears to have energized the bulls as the S&P 500 finished the week closer to all-time highs than the recent lows. To be sure, the major indices remain entrenched in a trading range. But with some good news on the economic front (Core PPI was reported bel…

Looking Ahead: The Correction Will End When...

By: David Moenning

It is said that stock market corrections are only "normal and healthy" until you are in the middle of one. The problem is it can be tough to see the bright side of the macro picture when volatility begins spiking, prices start to crater (and then recover, and then crater again), and all k…

By: David Moenning

Although stocks rallied to end the week and my screens are flashing a lot of green again this morning, it appears that the relentless rally that began in March (or some might argue, November 2020) has stalled a bit. To be sure, this isn't the first time the bulls have taken a break during…
