The morning began with the Dow Jones Industrial Average slightly down. As the morning progressed a lot of buying came into the market and at one point the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up well over 200 points. At 3:00 we started getting massive selling in the market and the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 82 points. This is showing me a topping pattern. The market is having trouble holding any rally. I am looking for the Dow Jones Industrial Average to push up into the 17800-18400 range. With only 14 business days left in 2015 I am hoping it can push up above the 18000 level before the end of the year. If I was a long term investor I would look to sell into that rally, be 100% in cash, and look for opportunities to reenter in 2016. Today crude oil made a new low, trading down to the 36.50-36.60 level. While the lower heating oil and gasoline prices are great for the consumer, the decline in crude oil is putting a damper on the S&P 500 oil stocks. The weakness in oil stocks is leading to a wave of selling in the overall S&P 500 index. There are no clear patterns in crude oil and I am on the sidelines waiting for a pattern to setup. Gold was down about 5 dollars today. Yesterday gold got up to the 1085 level. I was looking for gold to get into the 1090-1100 range where I would look to get short. Gold is in the 1040-1090 range. There are no clear patterns in gold and I am on the sidelines waiting for a pattern to setup.
