The Morning Look

Stock Market Overview: 

Futures are slightly lower ahead of Friday’s open as investors digest a volatile week. The market digested a slew of earnings and economic data this week.

Gary’s Thoughts: And we forgot gold breaking out now. Gold stocks led the metal. And….we think there is a better than 50% shot that market topped for at leas tthe short term yesterday…notwithstanding Yellen announcing QE4…which yes, we believe will eventually happen.

      Gary’s Thoughts: Bad form by Icahn! He promoted his buying and ownership. He does not owe the public anything but if you are going to promote one side, you should alert to the other side…not after.
