Since the pandemic, the stock market has risen on stimulus.
Then market bulls turned to vaccine news and hopes for a quick and effective release.
Most recently, the market has a new guardian-a transition team taking shape with the market’s favorite dove-Janet Yellen as Treasury Secretary.
Furthermore, it appears she will work with Powell as it’s rumored he will remain the Fed Chair.
Can the stock market get any more good news?
This does seem to bode super well for our Economic Modern Family.
The Russell 2000 (IWM), Transportation (IYT), Retail (XRT), and Semiconductors (SMH) have all cleared and gone on to make all time highs more than once.
It’s possible the Modern Family has been listening a bit too much to the Guardian of the Galaxy’s version of Blue Swede’s, “Hooked on a Feeling”.
“I’m hooked on a feeling
I’m high on believing
That you’re in love with me!”
Here is a link to the song. https://youtu.be/NrI-UBIB8Jk?t=29
The market has definitely been hooked on a euphoric feeling as today the Dow Jones broke 30,000.
Then pot stocks, like CGC, GRWG, and MJ also gapped up which proves the market is “high on believing.”
But one must be careful with the last sentence.
“That you’re in love with me!”
While it’s pleasant to think that the market loves you, you should be very wary in believing it.
The market can easily retract such feelings leaving you in a daze!
