Canada's TSX Index Teeters At Major Support/Restistance
If oil can regain and hold 43.50, and if the recent high-volume spike on the TSX was an indication of capitulation, we may see a rally ensue in both of these markets.

Crude Oil Down 60% Since Mid-June 2014
Crude Oil has fallen a massive 60% since mid-June 2014. Price today fell below 43.50 and closed at 42.53. Unless 43.50 is regained and held, we may very well see a retest of 35.00, or lower.

Crude Oil's Sweet Spot
A breakout and hold above the reverse H&S pattern neckline around 57.00 would be significant, inasmuch as we see a confluence of major Fibonacci, channel, and price resistance at that level. I'd call that Oil's sweet spot.

SPX: 100-Point Rally Ahead?

Many thanks, Bill! :-)

Yes...it's unclear to me at this point. Perhaps, barring any major geo-political (including domestic) upsets or oversees nuclear "mistakes" in the near future, we'll eventually see markets resume an uptrend after drifting in this range, or maybe a bit lower until the fall. Although, there's still the possibility that markets spike higher one last time before a (rumoured) June rate hike.

3 Trillion Dollars Now At Risk...And More

I, myself, wouldn't profess to speak on behalf of others' interests. I have a hard enough time keeping track of my own. :)

My article simply points out the fact that there is no evidence, thus far, that Republicans are willing to support and advance (by means of legislation) President Trump's ambitious agenda. We'll see what markets think of that (if this continues) over the coming days and weeks, and, more importantly, what voters think and want within the next 2 to 4 years.

(Safer for whom?) It is if you like gridlock...it's more important to ask affected voters what they think.

I doubt if President #Trump has a one-trick-pony agenda. The real issue is, I believe, whether his party is behind him 100% in order for him to implement his ambitious plans. So far, I've seen no evidence of that in the House and Senate.

Tech May Hold Key To Continued Santa Rally

Thx, Alexander...If $AAPL execs can be convinced to repatriate its overseas cash in exchange for forgiveness of paying taxes on such a transaction by some kind of Congressional intervention (which includes AAPL committing to invest in public infrastructure programs), you could see its stock break out to new highs next year. Perhaps Mr. Trump's team can work some kind of magic in this regard. Your comment has inspired me to write about a potential rally on my Blog at StrawberryBlonde'sMarketSummary.com.

M-M-M-My Kuroda: What The BOJ Is Up To

Is the world the same place now as it was then and would that tool be just as effective (economically, sociologically, technologically, etc.)?...no doubt, lots of factors to consider.

Thanks for the informative and well-written article, Tom. With the propensity for Central Bankers to do the heavy lifting these days, there's no incentive for governments around the world to implement any kind of stimulative fiscal policies. This kind of head-in-the-sand approach by world leaders will do nothing, in the long run, to foster trust in the markets...we may see a hard landing at some point in the not-too-distant future where no country can be immune from its fallout, IMHO (I hope I'm wrong, though).
