Profitable Investing & Market Timing Weekly Update for 12/9/2017

Stock Market Timing Week in Review

Watch accompanying market timing video.

Good news this week on the tax update, a technology rebound of sorts, and an excellent jobs report on Friday helped traders go home happy on Friday.

We still have the government shutdown to contend with.  Congress managed to arrange an interim spending bill that avoided the shutdown this past week.  However, they still need to agree on a broader budget arrangement by the end of the year.

The stock market demand/supply balance still shows decreasing demand which keeps a muted tone on the market timing update this week.
