I am not a professional investor. I got interested in the financial markets about 6 years ago and started reading voraciously books on finance and investing.

    Last week I reviewed what historically happens after a steep rally like the one we had in the prior 9 days that ended on Oct 14. I determined that historically the week after is a relatively quiet week that brings consolidation and some modest gains. This is what really happened in the week after I wrote the analysis. After closing the previous week at 1225, SPX moved up and down this week and closed at 1238, a 1% gain. I will extend the historical parallel in another post this weekend and I will try to add some more flavor to the analysis in order to gauge the potential market moves next week.

  • The rebound is very subdued. I hope it goes a little higher before it crumbles again.
