NASDAQ 100 Right on Schedule. Gold and Energy Opportunity

For the past month or so, I have focused much of my commentary on the NASDAQ 100 as it had been the far and away market leader before getting hit with the ugly stick from late May to early July. Late last week, things began to change and I saw the NASDAQ 100 looking a little better in the short-term. On Friday, the bulls, especially in tech and the NASDAQ 100 did step up with the anticipated bounce beginning. That’s continuing today and a good sign overall, even though there could be some more weakness ahead.

While I still do not see a full scale correction of 10% or anything close just yet, I do think stocks have settled or are settling into a trading range until at least later this quarter. For the nimble, rallies to the upper end of the range can be sold while declines to the lower end can be bought. As this is taking place, it will be important to watch which sectors lead and lag each tradeable move.

I have long mentioned energy finding a bottom at some point, but I wasn’t going to be brazen enough to pick it just yet. There is some evidence that the sector is hammering out at least a short-term low right here and now. That’s lining up with the gold stocks as well. And all that is without any large currency moves. Hmmmm…
