That was the text the came through this afternoon from my younger brother, “Abandon Ship?” He was referring to his positions in his IRA, wondering if it is time to sell his stocks. My reply was, “I’m not sure.” With Interest rates falling, where else will people go for yield? But, with stocks just off all-time highs and currency wars at hand, now is not the time to be a hero.
A lower open likely gets ugly fast as people ponder this question, then Abandon ship. So watch for things to get fast should we see a red open. A green open likely gets sold as well, so I’m not looking to sink my teeth in a bunch of oversold plays. Also, we are still in earnings season, here are a few notable companies reporting:
