The Week Ahead in the Global Financial Markets

From the Desk of Joe Rios

The stock indices were in the limelight as the Dow and S&P 500 reached record highs intra week, while the NASDAQ continued to underperform. All of the stock indices sold off sharply Friday into the close led by NASDAQ momentum stocks. As for the broader market, the recent record high was a struggle, as the last two days saw intra-day new highs but stocks ended closing near the lows.

In the week ahead I will pay close attention to price action in the S&P 500 and the correlations within the NASDAQ, US Ten Yr Note, Euro and Gold. I will also focus on momentum style of trading over trend following for potential trading opportunities.
