    Not a whole lot of change here compared to last week. Most signals suggest that equities are still a buy while bonds are a sell despite all sitting above their 200-day moving averages. Small-caps are more of a mixed bag. Trade optimism is a bullish signal but the technicals aren’t [...]

  • As you likely already know, Saudi Arabian oil fields were damaged in a drone attack over the weekend crippling roughly 5% of the world’s daily oil output. Both WTI and Brent crude oil prices are up about 12% on the day despite President Trump releasing some of the strategic reserves. This [...]
  • That’s what at least one market watcher thinks. A surprise drone strike on Saudi Arabian oil fields that figure to take half of the country’s oil production offline could send oil prices soaring in the coming days. It’s estimated that nearly 5.7 million barrels of oil a day or about [...]
