Index Review- January 2016

  The US stock market, stocks, and stock indices rallied on Friday, 1/29/2016, the last trading day of January, with Microsoft (MSFT), Visa (V), and tech stocks making the biggest gains during the widespread buying.  Widespread?  Yes!  Looking at the US Composite, 1989 issues advanced, 5 issues were unchanged, and only 148 issues declined.   It is worth reviewing the Index performance in the month of January as there are those that will argue … as January goes … so will go the rest of 2016.   Due to holiday shortened weeks, there were only nineteen (19) trading days in January 2016.
