The market struggled for most of the week only to have a good day Friday to pull it into positive territory. Some companies have missed or disappointed on earnings with others beating expectations. This increase volatility as investors try to recalibrate expectations of winners or losers. Expect another week of volatility this week only hopefully most of the bad news is done. Also, investors tend to watch the news too much so any bad news in violence between countries will make them hesitant. This is probably a mistake as I pointed out here.

Investment Indicator Thoughts

S&P 500
The general S&P 500 (ticker is ^GSPC and the first line of my investment indicator articles). It was a tough week last week with this index seeing mostly sideways movement. This was caused by geo-political events along with some less than excellent results for Q2. I think this week will also continue to have challenges so investors should be cautious.

NASDAQ Composite
The NASDAQ Composite (the ticker is ^IXIC and the second line of my investment indicator articles). It was a tough week last week with this index seeing mostly sideways movement. This was caused by geo-political events along with some less than excellent results for Q2. I think this week will also continue to have challenges so investors should be cautious.
