Thursday Market Wrap 1/31/12

{+++} The S&P landed pretty much on its 10 day daily moving average today. This action has been mind numbing the last few days and unless your playing earnings, there isn’t much excitement. I triggered ASGN today as it was acting well. This may react to the jobs number tomorrow, good or bad. Tomorrow is…

A Little Air Comes Out

{+++}We saw a small pullback today as the DOW sold off a whopping 44 points.  The S&P came off four points and tested the 1500 level. The Nazzy was pretty flat, but the Russell 2000 sold off a little over 1% and closed slightly below the 10 day simple moving average. The Russell 2000 is…

1500 Tomorrow- 2 New Set Ups

{+++} GOOG and IBM are leading the way higher in the after market after nice reports. GOOG seems to be nailing it on the mobile side, maybe that will carry over to FB tomorrow, so maybe that’s a name to watch tomorrow. There were breakouts all over the place today and the market wants higher….

Monday Premium Post 1/21/12

{+++} Everything looks pretty good. Unfortunately earnings are coming fast and furiously, so I took some names off my list because they are reporting soon. So I will try to be looking at stocks that have already reported or will report a few weeks out for swing purposes. In other words, I would rather buy…
