Hello Eizell.



Days First Debates = 1


YESTERDAY: September 25

SPX 3298.46 +51.78

The day started with the SPX falling -18 points for the first 30 minutes before bouncing to the unchanged line. From there, the market started to climb steadily the rest of the day and into the close.

At the close, the SPX tested 3300 (again) before closing a smidgen under. AAPL closed higher by $4.06 at 112.28. TSLA closed higher by 19.55 at 407.34. Travel stocks also bounced with BA higher by 9.98 at 156.03.


TODAY: September 28

TODAY – Higher open testing 3300 again. Closing above it?

Friday, we attempted to close above 3300, but closed just under. This is normal as the market attempts to break through a big number. This is typical when the next day (today) the market closes higher. We have the debates Tuesday night, and that will be interesting for the markets.


Sept 29 – Presidential debate #1
October 15 – Presidential debate #2
October 22 – Presidential debate #3

I am still standing by my prediction (made December 31, 2019) that we will be positive for the year and making new all-time highs by the end of the year. I maintained this stance even when the SPX was down -36% for the year (this has been here since January 1).
