U.S. Equities Week End Brief: August 18, 2017
Shain Vernier • 1 min read
Unless we see a major rally on the U.S. session close, American equities will retreat for the second straight week. Currently, all of the major U.S. indices are trading in the red on the weekly timeframe. Are we headed into a full-blown correction?
There really isn’t a whole lot on next week’s docket as far as U.S. equities go. But, rest assured there will be opportunities available.
However, it will be interesting to take a look at the New Home Sales reports and the Housing Price Index for the U.S. real estate market. Those releases will give us a better idea of consumer sentiment and the commercial lending situation.

Until then, the intermediate-term future of U.S. equities will be in limbo. Uncertainty creates volatility, and volatility creates opportunity. For some great ideas on how to trade the indices during the most opportune times check out the trading signals on FX leaders.com
