| About: SPDR S&P (SPY)

As expected, the path of the S&P 500 in the first week of October 2016 came in below our standard model's projections, as stock prices continued their mostly sideways trajectory of the last three months, although with a slightly downward course.

Coming into the week, investors appeared to be focusing their attention on the first quarter of 2017 in setting stock prices, but that downward path, combined with the news of the week suggests that may have changed, where they are perhaps now focusing more on 2016-Q4.

As for that news of the week, here are the headlines that caught our attention.
