D&D Note (5.11.2018) ~ DOW Stages 7th Straight Day of Gains ~

Markets continue to be in a time correction opposed to a sharp V price correction. Both the DOW and S&P 500 are now above their 50 day moving averages which suggests a technical breakout. However on overbought RSI basis we should see a near term reversion to the mean before trying to breakout again.

The DOW has staged a 7 day rally gaining some 1200 points. We’ve now closed two Fridays in a row in the green.

Trade wars, tariffs, and a middle east conflict all still remain major potential geopolitical headwinds.

Tax cuts, earnings, and low inflation all remain tailwinds for the market.

In a speech today the POTUS outlined plans to lower drug prices including possibly requiring listed prices in commercials and ads.

Oil falls 1% but still holds above $70.

After IMLFF had a huge bounce of 35% off the 200 day moving average we have seen a normal reversion to the mean back towards the 200 day. D&D added more to our position today.

Much like the DOW and S&P 500, IMLFF is flirting with technical levels in a wedge pattern. The good news is the flirtations have all been to a breakout to the upside.
