The market started the week opening higher, but then took on the character that had started on expiration Friday: sell growth stocks after the opening. During the week the market had three gap up openings, no gap downs, and still ended the week lower. For the week the SPX/DOW were mixed, the NDX/NAZ lost 2.5%, and the DJ World index rose 0.8%. Economic reports for the week remained positive. On the uptick: Q4 GDP, FHFA housing prices, consumer confidence/sentiment, durable goods orders, personal income/spending, PCE prices, the WLEI and weekly jobless claims improved.
