The market was generally good last week and should be good this week as well. Retail oriented stocks tended to have good announcements which may signal a positive couple weeks for any stock that is driven by consumer spending. More concern is on 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.

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 an early rise primarily due to good news of certain retail stocks and then falling at the end of the week but still ending the week slightly ahead. 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 with last week ending with negative MACD and Fast EMA underwater, 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 an early rise primarily due to good news of certain retail stocks and then falling at the end of the week but still ending the week slightly ahead. 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 with last week ending with negative Fast EMA underwater, so investors should be cautious.
