Stocks have been on an absolute tear of late including 6 straight sessions in the plus column. When that is the case, then no shame in a little pullback like Thursday.
Some investors may be scratching their head how it could take place on the same day that Jobless Claims got even better. The improvement here is unmistakable. Lower weekly jobless claims most often culminates in a month with more job adds; which is a clear sign of economic improvement.
If you want to draw a black lining out of this silver cloud it would be that an improving jobs picture may bring about a speedier conclusion to the QE program. That would be a negative in the eyes of most investors. I see little fear of that coming soon. But as we creep towards 2014 it may become a more distinct possibility.
Note that any sell off from less QE will be temporary because the Fed will only do it when the economy is strong enough to stand on its own two feet. Rarely is that bad for the stock market.
Zacks' low-risk approach to market timing detects subtle, early signals of movements in industries, sectors, and the market as a whole. It doubles your profit potential on these swings with a simple metric, and then triples that potential yet again through a twist on a common trading move.
That is how a small 3% move on the market can become a 15-20% winner in no time at all.
