Dang it!!!!  I think I made a mistake.Kevin Hurley


December – Historical Facts of The S&P 500


  • 87 December’s (1928-2015), 64 had positive returns a 74% upside occurrence. The best of any month.
  • The average percentage increase was 3.00%.
  • The average percentage decline was -2.90%, the least of any month.
  • On average December returns 1.40%.

I  do not have downside protection on F or DIS and DIS is down $7 in 5 days when last week I said I should probably protect DIS from a possible rate hike. Did I make a mistake?  Today not sure but I might have been able to protect $7 down even though I do NOT have technical crossovers!!! Next week DIS could be back to $120 in which case I am allowing the stock to move within its “Trading Range”.


Where would you expect DIS to trade from here based on technicals?   A Bounce higher

What’s happening this week and why?

Chicago PMI 48.7 vs est 55.0

Pending Home Sales 0.2 vs est 0.7

Yuan was voted in as a reserve currency in the “basket” of currency’s= It means that they cannot or should not have the ability to deflate the value of their currency as dramatic as they have in the past ie… this past summer.  The vote was yes, even though China lies their butts off on the economic numbers, in hopes of stabilizing the second biggest and possible futures biggest economy currency


Where will our market end this week?

But we’ve had two down week and maybe the market is set for an up week ending up 250 points higher than the close today
