WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR NOVEMBER 24, 2013

November 23rd, 2013

craps front coverMARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR November 24, 2013: The stock market continues to push upwards without a hint of an extended correction. This past Friday marked the 10th consecutive new high of this current rally from its October 8th low. This pattern of new consecutive highs should continue until it reaches 13 which could occur in another week. About the only thing that could cause the change in momentum to the downside would be investor expectations of new Fed tapering. Otherwise, the lone prudent investment choice will continue to be the asset class of equities.

Key underlying market indicators show the following:

For now, my advice for traders and investors is to remain of the sidelines and watch for short term buying opportunities in alternative oversold asset classes. Those would include real estate (IYR), long-term Treasury bonds (TLT), emerging markets (EEM), silver (SLV), and gold mining (GDX). I strongly discourage trading leveraged, inverse ETFs for downside action because of their tricky nature, limited history, and deceiving internal indicators. But for those who insist on dabbling in this dangerous area with small bets for short holding periods, my two choices would be (TZA) and (SDS) based on liquidity and volatility.
