Will Tax Cuts Push Stocks Even Higher ?

Bookmark and Share

S&P 500 Futures---- The S&P 500 futures in the December contract settled last Friday in Chicago at 2579 while currently trading at 2580 as volatility has finally entered this market due to the fact of the possibility that the tax cuts may have been delayed, but the House of Representatives passed that yesterday as we will have to see what the Senate will do in the coming weeks ahead.

If you are long a futures contract the stop loss remains at 2562 on a closing basis only as prices were below that level at one point only to close above that critical area while then experiencing a tremendous rally in Thursdays trade so continue to place the stop loss at that price & let's see what next week trade will bring.

Next week is Thanksgiving which generally is very quiet & positive as I think that will be the exact same situation this year as prices still are above their 20 and 100 day moving average, but we need to break the November 9th high of 2594 to continue the bullish momentum as I do think the tax cuts are not only bullish the S&P 500 but bullish the commodities across the board & if you look at Friday's action we had breakouts in many different sectors as this is good news in my opinion as we head into 2018 and as I've talked about in many previous blogs I will not take any bearish positions.

The tax cut for corporations is massive as it will be lowered to 20% which means these companies will be making even more money than they are at the present time as there is still room to run to the upside in my opinion.
