All three major indices ended the week at record highs as we saw large-cap stocks move up higher for the eighth straight week. Will we get a ninth straight week of higher movement from the large-caps? Of course, it would surely be welcome and note that there does not seem to be too much in the way. The balance of the current earnings report season is starting to slow down and is anticipated to continue to confirm the growth that we have been seeing from others. The Q3 growth reports have also generally been coupled with the confirmation of full-year results being on track and/or with upwards guidance by many leaders like tech giant Apple (AAPL) which is flirting with $1 Trillion Market Valuation. We have also realized this current upward movement in the face of the Fed staying pat on Wednesday leaving interest rates at the target rate at 1.00%-1.25% while confirming that the balance-sheet normalization program was initiated, and we are on track for a raise in December. It’s also seen a nomination of a new Federal Reserve chair that is perceived to be a market positive move by many because of Jerome Powell’s previous centralist position & the publishing of a new tax plan out of the House of Representatives. It has also moved up in the face of a Friday report that confirmed that the economy added 261,000 jobs (less than expected) in October, but the unemployment rate fell to 4.1%. Again, can we possibly see a ninth straight upward week? My fingers are crossed and I am generally feeling that there is a good chance that we realize this feat. I look forward to your insights and comments and have a wonderful weekend.
