    Where is the market collapse? The 200 day MA is in the other direction. Why don’t they put Rosenberg on CNBC now instead of trotting him out on Monday when everyone was afraid of the Bogeyman?
    Semis as a sector are near their all-time high.
    Energy has really broken higher.
    US Financials on fire.

    The Fed doesn’t allow any publicity to a Perma Bear on, or right after, Fed Day. It’s so hard not to be cynical.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    I can’t help but always noticing that the S&P 500 tends to outperform most everything or at least holds up well relative to everything else comparatively regardless of what’s happening. Gotta wonder why bother with anything else as the risk with anything else seems greater. The S&P 500 covers just about everything and is also weighted for the big moves up as well. I’ve been thinking that if you can’t beat it then join it. Lots of ETFs that mirror the S&P500 in a variety of ways too. Price still has some technical work to do at this price point to be out of the woods but the bounce has been impressive so far. Would not want to see price roll over from here though.
