Good Friday, Positive Week, Fed Countdown...
         for Week Ending 12/4/2015


All the major averages closed strong Friday pushing them all into positive territory for the week with the Dow up 49 pts or 0.28%, the S&P 500 was up 1.58 pts or 0.08%, and the NASDAQ up 14 pts or 0.29%, all approaching their summer highs (see graph below). Expectations for a Fed rate increase grew as the economy added 211,000 November jobs, while the Labor Force Participation Rate crept up to 62.5%. Will our economic forces stay strong & keep the markets positive or will the dark side show up after the Fed meeting Dec 15-16? Until then have a good weekend! Paul
