Atlanta Wealth Expo

The market is poised to open higher with the February jobs data coming in around the consensus levels. As we’ve come to expect, forecasts of a goldilocks economy again dominate the coverage this morning. Earlier this week I noted that in my opinion the market will be range-bound for the next few weeks, with intra-week gains sold off to profit-taking on Friday afternoons. Today will be the first test of that theory.

If the pre-market rally carries through to the close, and the un-winding of the yen carry trade continues to lose significance, there’s reason to believe that the market may be poised to move higher next week. If that’s the case, we will obviously analyze our model portfolio allocations and make any adjustments if needed. In my personal opinion, last week’s correction didn’t go far enough and we need to at least test the low’s again.

On a side note, we’ll be speaking next Saturday, March 17th at The Wealth Expo in Atlanta on adding alpha to an investment portfolio. Our presentation will cover how investors can use the Alpha Advisor Service, LLC bi-weekly newsletter to select alpha-generating investments based on our proprietary quantitative analytic.
