The on-again, off-again trade deal with China has put some life into the stock market, all of it vicious. It has also invigorated an otherwise moribund discussion concerning weather tariffs are good or bad. Popular wisdom has it that the...
Was it President Trump’s intention all along that trade talks with China fail? That’s the contention of ‘Farmer,’ a long-time subscriber who lives in Nairobi. He posted earlier today as follows in the Coffee House, a chat room that...
My minimum upside target for the S&P500 is still 3095, about 7.4% above current levels, and I am sticking with it. A corresponding rally in the Dow Industrials would leave them just shy of 28,000. Let me also mention that last week’s...

The Dow Industrials look primed for a 900-point rally, assuming they can close for two consecutive day’s above Friday’s high. It occurred slightly beneath a 26,656 Hidden Pivot resistance that’s a good bet to show stopping power...
Today’s chart shows why it can be so difficult to make money in a bull market, even when one “knows” how high a stock is headed.  We’ve been confident that Facebook will eventually hit 190, a Hidden Pivot target first aired here more...
