For the previous week, the media continues to push the concept that dip-buying is the perfect plan proper now, as this technique has labored properly all year long.

Right here is the issue — if we glance again on the prior dips within the indices, they have been rapidly adopted by giant inexperienced days. Present value motion is a flimsier, with giant vary days paired with comparatively week closing costs. With that stated, on Wednesday an FOMC Announcement might be made together with a Fed press convention. The market could also be holding its breath earlier than the assembly and ready for readability or extra dovish Fed speak as a cause to rally greater.
On one other be aware, Excessive Yield Bonds (JNK) is displaying energy by this present pullback, because it has not closed beneath its 50-DMA. JNK can act as a risk-on indicator, as energy on this ETF exhibits that traders are nonetheless prepared to tackle dangerous company debt.
