1. Market Summary
Excerpted from Tuesday’s paid content of Investment House Daily due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Market Shows Some Rotation
– The market shows some rotation, just not nearly enough to offset the sharp intraday reversals in the growth indices.
– Chairman Powell was renominated. The market celebrated and then sold off — as if Chairman Powell is not dovish enough.
– A larger number of housing speculators are fueling existing home sales.
– There are an impressive number of new lows on the Nasdaq, as smaller issues are entering their own correction.
– Is Chairman Powell’s renomination a market top? It is likely just some Thanksgiving week sharp volatility that happens when stocks run hard ahead of the current volatility.
On Monday, President Biden made his pick for the next Fed chair, choosing between Jerome Powell and Lael Brainard. Initially, the response was a wave of upside in market futures — Chairman Powell, as the status quo, has been good for stocks. The irony is that initial blush upside was sold after a nice rally through the first hour. Stocks gave up the gains into the time that the European markets closed. Could it be that the market rethought the choice and sold because, after all, Chairman Powell is tightening the money supply and planning on hiking interest rates. Wow, Chairman Powell is too tough? Only when the other possibility is a pro-money printing socialist.
Regardless of the cause, stocks did rebound off of the morning high-to-low move. In the last hour, however, stocks dove lower and plunged to a session low. Growth stocks took a beating, but the NYSE indices were not hit as badly.
