The market was generally good last week and should be good this week as well. More concern for geo-political events that could cause a pullback. There is a very good chance that the week will be flat so individual stock choices will be important. Look for a spike or drop on individual stocks this week and the next couple as quarterly earnings are released.

Investment Indicator Thoughts

S&P 500
The general S&P 500 (ticker is ^GSPC and the first line of my investment indicator articles). Last week was a good growth week even though it was interrupted by Independence Day holiday. This week is the beginning of Q2 earnings announcements. It is possible that any stock could see significant movement in pricing due to unexpectedly good or bad news. Vigilence is warranted during this time.

NASDAQ Composite
The NASDAQ Composite (the ticker is ^IXIC and the second line of my investment indicator articles). Last week was a good growth week even though it was interrupted by Independence Day holiday. This week is the beginning of Q2 earnings announcements. It is possible that any stock could see significant movement in pricing due to unexpectedly good or bad news. Vigilence is warranted during this time.
