September 7, 2021
Near-term Market Forecast: The market environment is modestly favorable for appreciation of these stocks in the weeks ahead.
A poor jobs report and more tax talk from Congress caused the S&P 500 to pull back just a bit today as the large cap index is down slightly since last Mondays close. The Nasdaq was up slightly as large caps continue to be in a strong uptrend. It was good to see the small cap Russell 2000 make a strong move back above the 50 day moving average and hold above there over the past few days. Still a few percent off the highs but getting close to a breakout for the small cap index. A poor jobs number is giving hope for a delayed Fed taper but supply chains are stressed and others are predicting tapering in the months ahead. The S&P 500 dividend yield continues to be around the ten-year treasury yield but the ten-year treasury yield gapped higher today and held those levels. The NYSE advance/decline line continues to move sideways but tested the highs last week. The vix volatility index is starting to move back higher off the low of its multi-month range. Lets see if it moves higher to test the top end of the range in the days ahead with a market pullback. In any case, the strategy is calling for holding the following 3 stocks until the next update:

Stock #1 – GOOGL
Optional Protective Stop-loss Point: $2274.00 (Be aware that a tighter stop-loss will likely severely reduce performance over the long-term based on back-testing for this strategy. See upgrade and performance video for further information and insight on optional stop-loss orders.)
Stock #2 – CTRN
Optional Protective Stop-loss Point: $72.38
Stock #3 – NTR
Optional Protective Stop-loss Point: $51.49
Some more progress last week with less than a 1% gain as the S&P 500 was down slightly.
September is considered the worst month for the market. A lot of that has to do with election years where the outcome and implications are unclear heading into the election.
