Tactics that Work in Good Markets and Bad

Does 1503 Represent a Breakout???

Friday's close at 1503 is a classic cliff hanger. "Tune in next week for the conclusion to this dramatic tale".

And that dramatic tale is about whether this move represents a clear breakout above 1500. I contemplate this notion with fellow Zacks' experts in this post: How Easily Will 1500 Fall?

The answer to this question greatly depends on the quality of economic reports next week as we have some heavy weights on the docket including monthly employment, ISM Manufacturing and Q4 GDP.

If all goes well with these announcements, then we will likely continue above 1500. If these reports give a sense of potential economic weakness, then stocks will correct. And if mediocre, then we consolidate around 1500 for a while.

Invest accordingly.
