Our newest technical addition to the family... Lowry Research. As many of you know, I am always in 'learning and growth' mode-always seeking out ways to improve and better the firm, myself and the services we offer our clientele. During a recent article on risk management, the research firm named Lowry was mentioned numerous times, which caused me to investigate them further. This was in part to ensure the legitimacy of the article and in part to see if there is better research to be found o...

Northern Star Newsletter 4/20/2016
Well, these past several weeks have been a reversal of fortune in the markets, ever since the Fed decided to rethink their approach to raising interest rates for 2016. Since the markets in general prefer the known vs the unknown, one can certainly see why they have enjoyed an increase in risk-on investments.

Northern Star Newsletter 4/12/2016
We are seeing the markets seemingly climb, yet the underlying current is not following suit. As a matter of fact, we have seen the market decline since it's high back in May of 2015 when we reference a point-to-point consideration. Many in the media claim the recent 12+% rally off the lows in February as a mitigating action that would-and should-reverse the pessimistic views of a bear market settling in. We, however, follow the evidence and the evidence says something entirely different.

Last week was an interesting one, especially Wednesday when the Fed "reversed" their approach of raising interest rates through 2016 on the view of a slowing economic recovery and concerns globally. Not 15 minutes into her talk, the markets took off and shot almost straight up. This pattern continued the remainder of the week as well giving "hope" to those investors not savvy enough to see what was really happening.

With this rally, we have got to be out of the woods?!? It is "normal market mechanics" to see a short-term rally come on the heels of a significant market correction. From it's high point in May of 2015, the market had fallen over 17% before catching hold and seeing a rally. Jan 25th, our indicators demonstrated a change from favoring stocks to favoring bonds for the first time since Nov of 2007. Since this change, we continue to see a weakening in the equities and strengthening in Gold ...

The markets have been correlated to the movement in Oil recently. With the weekend announcement that Russia and OPEC will be freezing oil production in an attempt to return demand to the marketplace, the commodity seems to be in a stable position for the time being. The stability in Oil has caused the greater markets to attempt to rally these past 3 days giving everyone cause for pause. There are still some headwinds that could continue to cause volatility and the fact that we are not officia...

The recent amount of negativity has resulted in numerous conditional changes in the markets. According to J2 Capital, we have now officially entered into a bear market. We also have seen our mid-term indicator make a change over night from favoring stocks to favoring bonds. This could reverse back but for the time being, it suggests we take a defensive stance as well.

Northern Star Newsletter 1/7/2016
The beginning of 2016 reminds me of the saying "In like a Lion, out like a Lamb". To tell ya the truth, the markets are playing out like their history suggests. As you might remember, dating back a few issues ago, I had brought to your attention that over the past 40 years or so, every year the Fed raises rates, the markets reward investors to the tune of 7-12% in the year following, however, the 5-7 week window over top of that decision is violent and volatile.
