Thought for the day, plus some posts on the Stock Market, Finance, Politics, and Life!

Below is a nice chart of how our markets ended up trading after the first month of 2016 (S&P -5.04%, DOW -5.07%, Nasdaq -7.86%)!
After a choppy week (up one day, down the next) for the S&P, it formed a bear flag. However, Friday's action let it close above the bear flag and the 20 SMA (red line) on chart below. This is a good sign that we may head up from here. Of course time will tell us for how long this bounce will last, but I'll be looking for some swing trades next week. I'm currently in XLI with a nice gain, but had 2 failed trades earlier this week with FDN and VOO.
