TGIF – Ending the Week We Went NowhereWell, that was fun

On the whole, we went nowhere this week but what an exciting time getting there.  First we were down, now we are up but, in the end – we're nowhere and the longer-term trend is still down from 4,550 for the month on the S&P 500 while the Nasdaq is 500 points off the September high of 15,700.

Still, it's not much of a pullback and Q3 earnings are just around the corner and next week is a BIG data week with Durable Goods, Retail Inventories, Consumer Confidence, Q2 GDP (3rd Estimate), PMI,  Personal Income & Spending and Consumer Sentiment.  Non-Farm Payroll won't be out until the following Friday and the UK just had a big drop in Consumer Confidence which, of course, leading Economorons failed to project – so it's likely we get more of the same over here.
