When you come to a fork in the road, take it. – Yogi Berra

 

Too much negativity!!!  The US appears better than other places in our global economy

Long term short covering once we broke the 50 SMA on some indexes

Stabilization in Oil, China

Best first day of a month in 3 years and Historically March is a bullish month

Inflows into mutual funds but not with excessive volume

 

What’s happening this week and why?

Chicago PMI 47.6 vs est 52

Pending Home Sales -2.5 vs est .7

Construction Spending 1.5 vs est .5

ISM 49.5 vs est 49.0

Auto and truck sales knocked it out of the park !!!

Chins PMI last night were lower than expected but China offset these number by a 50 basis point cut in the interest brewing rates last week

 

 

Where will our market end this week?

Higher to near 2000 because there is no more resistance until 2000, market inertia
