 Not much happened between my Halftime Report and now. I honestly felt like I had nothing to say in this video. Stocks did finish higher, but for the most part, they did not move much between noon and now. Please refer to my Halftime Report today for more detailed analysis.


We have eleven trading days left for 2009 (four more this week, 3.5 next week, and 3.5 the week after). Things are looking pretty bullish to close out the year. Some of the bullish action can be attributed to fund managers loading up on stocks to look better. Clients will want to see their funds invested after hearing so much good news... January 2010 will be an interesting month. My guess right now is that we will remain strong for 2009 and some, if not all, of January 2010. After that, I would not be surprised if the markets start a strong pull back. That's just a guess, and I honestly do not care either way. As I have said before, I am a trader. I can theoretically make money in any market (bull or bear).

Thanks for being a part of! Always trade with a stop loss and manage your risk appropriately.

Happy Trading,
