The market is not overly healthy right now. You should be cautious with your investments. There are still some good players out there and I expect this coming week to be slightly positive. Some analysts think we will be down for most of August and maybe into September. My expectation is that it will be generally flat. Cash is king right now so look for bargains!

Investment Indicator Thoughts

S&P 500
The general S&P 500 (ticker is ^GSPC and the first line of my investment indicator articles). This indicator is seriously into the wait cycle. While the trend the last couple of days last week was positive, we are still well below the stage where I think the stocks followed by this indicator are going to rise in general. Extreme caution should be considered before any investment is made on an individual stock.

NASDAQ Composite
The NASDAQ Composite (the ticker is ^IXIC and the second line of my investment indicator articles). This indicator is seriously into the wait cycle. While the trend the last couple of days last week was positive, we are still well below the stage where I think the stocks followed by this indicator are going to rise in general. Extreme caution should be considered before any investment is made on an individual stock.
