More news on inflation is scheduled to be released on Tuesday morning when the U.S. May Producer Price Index is announced. Traders are waiting for news from the Fed at 2:00 PM EDT on Wednesday.

    Re #15 yesterday.
    I believe it was Alexander Elder who said that: “The amateur’s determine the open and the professionals determine the close.” He said that people with day jobs would put in market orders before leaving for work.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    SPX – Both stochastics and RSI near oversold but not quite. The May low was broken. This would seem to be the make or break point for the market.

  3. RonBC Says:

    Re:#1
    Yes I believe you are correct about Alexander being the one that coined that phrase. So very true. I never did like following the lemmings. Your are up early this morning……….just kidding, lol.

  4. RonBC Says:

    Here is a long term chart of the $TSX along with a ratio chart of $TSX:$SPX. As always draw your own conclusions…………
