Now PanicGood morning. Companies have been quietly raising their earnings estimates ahead of their reports over the coming weeks.  And of the 32 S&P 500 companies that have reported so far, there’s been an average beat of 9 percent.
That could be a sign that corporate earnings are holding up well among America’s big businesses, even as interest rates have made the cost of borrowing and expanding more expensive.  If these trends can hold up, stocks are well-positioned for a year-end rally, maybe even one that takes them close to their prior all-time highs.
This week traders will want to keep a close eye on regional bank stocks reporting earnings in the next two days, such as KeyCorp (KEY) and Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB).  Investors should look to buy shares of any company that beats on earnings but immediately sells off, with an eye to a year-end rebound.

Break-out SessionGood morning.
Until central banks stop raising interest rates, asset prices will be under pressure.  Investors should expect an overall downtrend.  However, there are a few short-term signs that a bounce is likely.  The first is a delta squeeze.  The ratio of selling to buying has been far out of whack, enough that a rebalancing will likely set up for a move higher, which started yesterday.
The second is that companies are locked up from buying back shares ahead of their quarterly earnings reports.  As companies report, they can resume their buyback operations.  That’s been a huge part of market returns in the past few years, and one that may give markets a boost in the coming day and weeks.
That gives traders a few more short-term opportunities on the long side.  But look for a few inexpensive ways to bet on the market resuming its longer-term downtrend in the weeks ahead.

Back to Work_15Good morning.
Treasury cash levels dropped from a peak of $1.8 trillion back in February to under $60 billion earlier this month ahead of the debt ceiling debate.  With the passage of a debt ceiling increase, the Treasury is looking to refill its coffers, with as much as $480 billion.
To raise the cash, the Treasury will be selling more T-bills, which could start to weigh on the bond market, pushing up yields in the process.  As we’ve seen throughout the year, rising Treasury yields can cause the market to stall.  So while all eyes are on the Fed to cause the next market volatility, this time around it may be the Treasury.

The five Ws signpostGood morning.
Thanks to the ongoing trade war with China and all the uncertainty that’s created, US industrial production sunk 0.5% month-over-month in December.  That also sent total industrial production lower on a year-over-year basis for the first time since President Trump was elected.
Given how long major changes in production and sentiment need to change, a trade deal will need to be finalized soon to show up in the economic numbers before the 2020 election.  The real crunch time for the markets – and Trump’s presidency – is now.

Other NEWS:

Uprooting Your Habits, both good-ones and bad-ones, takes considerable commitment!  I’m personally working on replacing the word “but” with “and.”

The word but may trigger a negative reaction because it sounds like I’m counteracting one’s proposal.

The word and sounds like I’m adding or complimenting their suggestion.

Example:

“Mark, your proposal sounds amazing.  We’ll be able to satisfy the employees and generate more sales.  And it may entail a bigger budget that seems a little out of our reach.”

You first acknowledge Mark for all the benefits of his proposal (that it will be able to satisfy the employees and create more sales).  Then you wittingly mention the objection at the end (that it will necessitate a larger budget, which the company may not approve).

The second sentence begins with and not but so the objection is perceived to be more of an additional comment rather than a criticism.

Using an illustrator/cartoonist, Darren Hardy’s message today is Uprooting Your Bad Habits.

Most people can relate to this story.  Swallowing medicine is easier with a spoonful of sugar!!!

Inch by inch it’s a cinch … 😉
