ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR INVESTMENT PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION

April 27, 2017 | Look for the Week to End with an AMZN/GOOG Hangover

Rick Ackerman is the editor of Rick’s Picks, an online service geared to traders of stocks, options, index futures and commodities. His detailed trading strategies have appeared since the early 1990s in Black Box Forecasts, a newsletter he founded that originally was geared to professional option traders. Barron’s once labeled him an “intrepid trader” in a headline that alluded to his key role in solving a notorious pill-tampering case. He received a $200,000 reward when a conviction resulted, and the story was retold on TV’s FBI: The Untold Story. His professional background includes 12 years as a market maker in the pits of the Pacific Coast Exchange, three as an investigator with renowned San Francisco private eye Hal Lipset, seven as a reporter and newspaper editor, three as a columnist for the Sunday San Francisco Examiner, and two decades as a contributor to publications ranging from Barron’s to The Antiquarian Bookman to Fleet Street Letter and Utne Reader.

AMZN and GOOG have taken psychotic leaps following the release of Q1 earnings news after Thursday’s close. This is likely to have little or no effect on the Dow and S&Ps on Friday, since the broad averages would find it difficult to emulate behavior for which there is no satisfying explanation. Call it a mood swing if you will, but don’t expect it to persist for the stock market in general as speculators try to shake off the hangover.
