After a five week winning streak in the portfolios since the election, this past week was a down week. Overall the ranges in the market were more narrow as the FOMC raised rates by 1/4 point on Wednesday. There was a pause in the Trump Rally this week as well. Is the Santa Claus rally over or will it continue? That is the big question with two weeks left in the year. This market is quiet and dull during the pause this week. We all know how hard it is to put on a major longer term short in a dull market. Follow your strategy.
