Sept 17 Fed Day Market Update and Stock Scan

Sep 17, 2015: 1:25 PM CST

“There is a zero percent chance the Federal Reserve will announce a rate hike (rise) on Thursday. ZERO.”

That’s what I wrote clearly to members last night and that’s exactly what happened.

Let’s start today’s mid-day market update with the news that the Fed did not raise rates today… and probably won’t do so through the rest of 2015.

Let’s update our levels and plan the remainder of today’s session:

In-depth analysis is always provided to members of the Premium Daily Reports – I hope you’ll join and benefit.

Again, there was a zero percent chance of a rate hike this session and the Fed followed-through with expectations.

The market so far has remained unchanged following the (non-surprising) outcome except for a quick algorithmic dip and recovery after the news.

The uptrend continues from the breakout – as we’ve been expecting from the membership analysis and planning.

Let’s see what our Breadth Chart reveals about current market strength (or weakness):

While we’ve seen strong bullish money flow all week, today’s session gives us pause; the strongest sectors today are clearly the Defensive Groups of Staples, Health Care, and Utilities.

That’s not what you want to see in a strong bullish money flow environment – it suggests caution.

Here’s a top-level or full-perspective view of today’s S&P 500 stock performance (courtesy of FinViz.com).
