  • Market Notes: Another Leg Up For The Bulls -- May 14 0 comments
    May 15, 2013 1:29 AM

    4:00pm ET: CNBC dubbed Tuesday as "Rally Tuesday" noting that the equity market has rallied for all eighteen of the past Tuesdays. Not only was today no exception, but it was lead by the Transports ($DTX) indicating that another leg up is in the cards. There's nothing in the market that is hinting the bears are even close to crashing the bulls' party. Market internals are no where near contrarian levels and nearly all of the major sectors are at new highs. Heck, even the dollar is doing well!

    So, where should prudent investors park their money? Well, throw a dart at a sector board and start there. All joking aside, the place to be is in equities and the two countries to be invested in are the U.S. and Japan. China's day in the sun is over--at least for now--and emerging markets could lose out if the dollar keeps rising. If you're looking for a diversified international portfolio of equities, do choose your spots carefully. Options players may wish to continue playing tracking stocks to the long side and use cash-secured puts as stock entry mechanisms.

    Not much more to say today other than to paraphrase Horace Greeley: "Go long, young man, go long!"
