Is It Time To Take Profits In Stocks ?

Bookmark and Share

S&P 500 Futures--- The S&P 500 in the December contract settled last Friday in Chicago at 2589 while currently trading at 2641 hitting record highs this week once again as tax cuts look to be approved by the Senate in today's trade continuing its bullish momentum. I've been extremely bullish the equity markets for months as I still remain so, but I am advising some clients to take some profits at these levels which I rarely do as I think all of the euphoria is already reflected into this market, however I certainly am not recommending any type of bearish position as I believe 2018 will be bullish once again, but the easy money has been made.

The S&P 500 is trading far above its 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the trend clearly is higher as today we experienced a 45 point trading range today due to the fact of Michael Flynn possibly testifying against Trump about the Russia collusion sending prices sharply lower only to come back significantly as the trend still remains higher, but if you decide to take profits I do not have a problem with that depending on your situation.

If you think prices are moving higher continue to place the stop loss under the 10 day low standing at 2567 and in Tuesdays trade will be raised to 2579 and in Wednesday's trade that will be raised once again to 2589 as the chart structure is finally starting to improve as I still remain bullish the entire equity market and commodity markets in general. TREND: HIGHER CHART STRUCTURE: --IMPROVING VOLATILITY---INCREASING
