Market Commentary

Market Stance: BULLISH (since April 10, 2018)

We enjoyed a very nice rally last week. Deen Capital accounts got a +2.1% boost. This is excellent, of course, but I am not so happy about it, because we underperformed. The S&P turned in a +2.5% gain (total return VFINX).

I think the underperformance is largely due to the unusually high degree of buying and selling. We bought 9 stocks last week. That's a lot of trading activity, even for me.

My indicators remain unanimously bullish. The path of least resistance for stocks, in my opinion, continues to be up. I do not see signs of a top here. Our accounts remain fully and aggressively invested.

My Three Primary Technical Indicators:

                                       Prior week             Now
                                       ----------           -------
NASDAQ Timing Model (Ver.11aa):          BULLISH            BULLISH (1)

Performance of Recent Stock Picks:  +8.2 BULLISH       +7.6 BULLISH (2)

Market Internals:                    49% BULLISH        62% BULLISH (3)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Market's Overall Technical Rating:       BULLISH            BULLISH

Stocks:Cash ratio (average):              100:0              100:0

(1) A proprietary computer model based on technical analysis of the NASDAQ Composite.

(2) This number (from -10 to +10) is based on the performance of ALL my recent stock picks (I actually buy only some of these). A positive number means my recent stock picks are generally rising; a negative number means they are generally falling. Even so, I consider a reading below +3.1 to be bearish. I require a reading of +5.6 or better to call this indicator bullish.

(3) This is the percentage of stocks ($8 and up) which are trading above their 50-day moving average. The rating of this percentage (bullish, bearish or neutral) is based on which way it's been moving recently -- up, down or sideways.
