Top Trading Links: Stocks, Bonds & Bulls… Oh My!

For several days now traders have been expecting an uptick in market volatility. And although we saw a modest tick higher Thursday, the VIX Volatility Index (INDEXCBOE:VIX) closed the week at 11.54.

All things considered, it was a pretty quiet week.  The S&P 500 Index (INDEXSP:.INX) ended down 0.2%.

In any event, the markets are due for a bigger move.  We have been moving sideways for weeks. There’s no need to anticipate it; simply follow price and let it guide you.

2017 is shaping up to be an interesting year. Better have your game face on!
