    Stocks keep climbing as hopes for US-China trade deal rise

    Stocks in the U.S. and Europe jumped Friday as renewed hopes for progress in trade talks between the U.S. and China helped the markets finish the week with another strong gain. Indexes jumped after Bloomberg News reported that China's government offered to buy more goods and services from the U.S., potentially eliminating its trade deficit by 2024. For investors, the encouraging news on trade builds on recent positive signs for the U.S. economy and indications from the Federal Reserve that it will be patient when considering future interest rate hikes.

    Two Small-Caps and One Mid-Cap Stock I Like So Far in 2019

    Last year the Russell 2000, a benchmark for small-cap stocks, was down 13% for the full year. Over the past couple of RMP columns, we have outlined why profit growth among domestically based small and mid-cap concerns should outpace those of their larger brethren that are more exposed to the deceleration of the global economy, the impacts of Brexit and ongoing trade wars.

    Examining the Charts of the Major Indexes

    If you wanted to look at a chart of the indexes you had to use William O'Neil's Daily Graphs (which you then had to update yourself each day since they only came out once a week), or you could look in the Wall Street Journal where they printed a chart of the DJIA, the Transports and the Utes daily. Back then the Heard on the Street column was a must read and the WSJ saw fit to place the charts of the three indexes right along side of that column so you were sure to see the charts.

The House of Commons expressed confidence in the government by 325 votes to 306, meaning May can remain in office. Had the government lost, Britain would have faced an election within weeks while preparing to leave the European Union on March 29.

    Dow, S&P 500 now up 11% from December lows, but still below 50-day moving averages

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 133 points, or 0.6%, in midday trade, to extend its bounce off the Dec. 24 low to 11.0%. But the Dow was still below the widely followed 50-day moving average (50-DMA), which many chart watchers use as a short-term trend tracker, that currently extends to about 24,364. The S&P 500 has gained 11.3% from its Dec. 24 low, but was still below its 50-DMA at 2,629. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite has shot up 13.6% from its Dec. 24 closing low, and closed above its 50-DMA on Tuesday. Elsewhere, the Dow Jones U.S. Total Stock Market index traded above its 50-DMA intraday Wednesday, the first time it's done that since Dec. 4, before slipping back below it.
