Stock Market Today: Grinding Higher Into 3-Day Weekend

Dan Russo

The market is grinding higher and may be awaiting a “sell the news” event for a pullback.

Traders are waiting for news of a US-China trade deal or the government shutdown ending. But those seem like inevitabilities and perhaps the market is pricing them in.

The market briefly jumped yesterday on news that the US may lift select tariffs on China… but until we have actual news of a deal, it’s just rumor. Below are the highlights from today’s video:

–  S&P 500 (SPY) Hits the 50% Retracement Level

–  Semiconductors (SOXX) Forming a Relative Basis

–  High Beta vs Low Volatility Hitting Resistance
