the ELLIOTT WAVE lives on
REVIEWVolatile week ends mixed to lower in world equity markets. After an 18 day, 20.3%, rally from SPX 1075 to 1293 the market has spent the past eleven trading days between 1215 and 1287. Positive economic reports for the week outnumbered negative reports, for the first time in many weeks, two to one. On the downtick: wholesale inventories, import/export prices and the monetary base. On the uptick: consumer credit, the twin deficits, consumer sentiment, the M1-multiplier, the WLEI and weekly jobless claims improved. For the week the SPX/DOW were +1.15%, but the NDX/NAZ were -0.15%. Asian markets declined 2.2%, European markets gained 0.5%, and the DJ World was -0.2%. Next week we have a slew of important economic reports, and it's Opex week.
