Wall Street is set to open lower this morning after President Trump’s dour comments on a possible trade deal over the weekend. The President said the talks are moving slower than he would like, and he would only make the “right deal” for America. Now that the Q3 earnings season is over, investor’s attention should shift to the upcoming year-end economic data.
The S&P 500 has formed a base of 3050.72-3097.77 near the all-time high set on 11/7/2019. The RSI index is above the overbought level at 70.22, so short term cautious is warranted. The new uptrend that started in October needs a base at these levels to consolidate the gains, and we feel the index could move higher after more sideways trading.
We are currently long term bullish and short term bullish.
