Major Earnings Out This Week
Friday left the Nasdaq market green, but the week red. Dow closed Friday Red and the week red by a hair. S&P 500 just to add to mix closed Friday green and the week red. Overall the week stayed in range so not a lot changed in the market, despite it being a short week and options expiration we held a very narrow range. Volume was slightly higher on the week for the NYSE but lower on the day for Friday, the Nasdaq was lower on the day and week. It was only a 4 day week so we are sitting in range and not seeing a lot change in the market.
Nas 100 and Nasdaq composite holding just over the 50dma, which will continue to be key.
Crude saw some upside after being beaten down all week. Closing up $1.51 on the day at $51.99. Still down on the week almost 2%, but holding a range like much of the equities market. Gold closed up 8.30 to close at $636.40 on Friday.
Full week of earnings ahead with a lighter week of economic news. Monday we can look for some early downside and to find support for the buyers. Fridayâ€™s action was very digestive and gave the market a little boost after a down week. Tech was the focus last week and tumbled all week to see a small bounce on Friday. The Hardware and software sectors are still holding support, just the semiâ€™s broke. So Iâ€™m still watching for broader participation in tech and not so isolated to the semiâ€™s.
Advanced Micro Devices [AMD|AMD] and Texas Instruments
