The Indices Monday, 5/2/2016 thru Friday 5/6/2016

  Below I am offering DAILY percentage basis comparison charts of the  Indices for  Monday, 5/2/2016 thru Friday 5/6/2016, going back to the first correction in August of 2015 …  I am re-working the weekly (Monday to Friday) and monthly (1st day to last day of the month) percentage basis comparison charts and I will post those charts and their tables as I complete them.
  Some would argue, that we are in a “Bear” market with a short term  upside trend … waiting for some, as yet unforeseen, shoe to drop.    Some would argue the “Bull” market is still running.   Happily, I do my own homework, and do not have to wait for someone else to write an article that I might miss.  We’re in the midst of earnings season.  Some large cap companies have missed “reduced” analyst expectations … like Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Alphabet (aka Google) (GOOGL, GOOG); while, companies like Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN) exceeded even best expectations.
:: In family gatherings, or in conversing and outings with friends, or when shopping at the local malls …note to self:  Tech is NOT dead.  My family, friends, and observations of shoppers at the mall suggests people want what they want.   The question, and the discussions,  are whether they can afford, at this time, to buy the gadget(s) they want in the face of repeated USA economy negative news articles and worrying as to whether those news articles will impact their jobs.  So, buying that next new gadget comes down to “if, “when”, and maybe.  For those paying attention that equals  “Pent up consumer demand” building!
… IMHO, the math points to a Bull market “correction” that is playing out “sideways”  over time.    However, its YOUR money, and charts, despite the MATH, and Science, are still subject to “interpretation” by the analyst, as well as the analyst’s biases, … and therein, through sharing,  lies our opportunity for discussion and debate.

  Also, to conserve space, and so as to not sound like a broken record by repeating information already posted, or that will be posted, for Monday, 5/2/2016 in related blogs please refer to the following links as you see fit:

  Note: The changes in the plot line colors in the charts, above and below, is not an error.  For the charts in the above link, I was multitasking and running a statistical analysis at the same time.   I apologize for not explaining that sooner.  I did use plot lines without the statistical analysis color changes for the multi-plot charts below and left them in the single Index line plot charts.  I did also change the Russell plot line colors for the multi-plot charts so the shades of green do not distort, or confuse the picture.  Please feel free to comment on which you prefer.
