DecisionPoint Report (1:12:12): On Monday Erin analyzes DP indicators to give us a heads up on the market conditions as we start the week. She also reviewed the "big four": Dollar, Oil, Gold & Bonds. Don't miss the DecisionPoint Weekly Wrap by Carl Swenlin on Saturday morning to get the scoop on market action the prior week and find out what the indicators are suggesting for the future. The indicators are turning around which suggests more upside to come, but the market seems toppy and Carl noted the SPX is running on a nearly straight up with an angle of ascent that will not be able to hold.
Tune in on Wednesday at 12:00p - 1:30p EST on 1/9. Tom and Erin will be doing another Ten in Ten segment as well as a SCTR Report update!
