Stock Market update -Dec 6th

The market was down this week, but recovered everything with a big rally on Friday. Seems like traders liked the Jobs report, and maybe the ECB action too. The Dollar dropped, along with Bonds (and Oil, on OPEC). Gold rallied, as did the Euro, catching traders off guard. This has been a very difficult and unpredictable market to trade.

Don't be surprised to see the market rally above 2100 on the S&p500 into the year end. The Small-caps probably have the most to gain if there is a rally. Gold & miners (GDX, GDXJ) seem to be in rally mode for now too.

New all time highs:  KR, LUV, MCD, TSN, ULTA, COST, CH, XRAY, ALK, ADSK, NTES, CLX, HRL...  
All time lows:  GPRO, FEYE, DYN, KMI, NRG, SDRL, 
Pops:          Drops:
