The market was generally good last week and should be good this week as well. 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.

If you are looking for long-term analysis of the stock, you should look for the stock in the company list that appears to the far right.

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 about to bust into a buy signal. It is simply waiting for a bit more time to have the downturn of a couple weeks ago to be in the distance a bit more.

NASDAQ Composite
The NASDAQ Composite (the ticker is ^IXIC and the second line of my investment indicator articles). This indicator is showing that the market has recovered from its correction of a couple weeks ago. The market looks quite strong for this indicator.
