Which Way Wednesday – Trump Bloviates but Powell Will Have the Last Word

Is this guy delusional or what?

The Republicans got trounced in the House but kept the Senate and Trump calls it a "Big Victory" though I do have no doubt that his friend Putin did congratulate him – so maybe that part is true.  So far, the markets seem very happy with a split Congress and we're back to the 7,100 line on the Nasdaq but that's only our weak bounce line (7,080) and we're still waiting for the Nasdaq and the Russell to confirm strong bounces and, of course, the others need to hold theirs for two consecutive days or we'll have to reset the clock on them as well.  Our bounce lines are:

  • Dow 24,300 with a weak bounce at 24,800 and a strong bounce at 25,300
  • S&P 2,640 with a weak bounce at 2,710 and a strong bounce at 2,780
  • Nasdaq 6,870 with a weak bounce at 7,080 and a strong bounce at 7,230
  • Russell 1,485 with a weak bounce at 1,530 and a strong bounce at 1,575
  • NYSE 11,880 with a weak bounce at 12,150 and a strong bounce at 12,400
