    Stock records aren’t enough to make investors feel bullish on the market

    The U.S. stock market is back at record levels, but investors aren’t in a celebratory mood. According to the weekly survey of sentiment conducted by the American Association of Individual Investors, market participants are feeling somewhat tepid about the market, despite a lengthy move higher that took both the S&P 500 (SPX) and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) to records on Thursday, a move that represented the first such milestone for the Dow since January.

    Nobody Will Even Guess What Stocks Will Do After Mid-Term Vote

    Reading market forecasts for the November congressional elections, you get the sense something is missing. While Wall Street is awash with efforts to frame outcomes as the vote approaches, there’s a discernible vagueness when you get to the part where strategists say what stocks will do. You may recall a certain trepidation in the air over how markets would receive a Donald Trump victory in November 2016.

    S&P 500 Price Forecast – stock markets quiet through quadruple witching

    With the quadruple witching on Friday, there are a lot of options expiring. Because of this, I think a lot of people simply stayed out of the market, which quite frankly was probably the best move.

    Industrials led the Dow to a new closing high on Friday ahead of Monday's major sector reshuffle, capping a week that largely shrugged off trade worries.

While the Dow closed higher, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq ended the session in negative territory.

    US Treasury Yields Dip Ahead of Next Week’s FOMC Rate Decision

    On September 26, the Fed is widely expected to raise the federal funds rate by a quarter-point.

    The Score: The Business Week in 7 Stocks

    The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite also surged on Thursday, but weekly gains were more modest. The stock market’s upward trend has coincided with a pause in the U.S. dollar’s climb and a recent spike in government-bond yields, a signal investors are viewing next week’s expected increase in interest rates from the Federal Reserve as a testament to the strength of the economy. Among individual stocks, Hennes & Mauritz AB shot up 17% on Monday after the parent company of fast-fashion retailer H&M posted stronger-than-expected quarterly sales figures that validated its turnaround efforts.
