Volume is Light but Traders are Remarkably Positive

Traders are dealing with the news from China and today's job's outlook in a surprisingly positive way. Prices are flat and volume is light so we don't expect major shifts in the market until next week but a break out to the upside could be coming in the near term. In today's Ask the Expert we will look at some of the key risk measures we are watching to provide some guidance for where we think prices will go in January.

We will also be digging into a great question I got last Thursday about leveraged funds. The question was about what would cause a leveraged ETF to outperform its index when we would logically conclude that this should be impossible. The answer may surprise you and it presents both unexpected risks and trading opportunities of which many investors are probably unaware. I am looking forward to discussing this topic as I think it will also provide answers to other commonly asked strategic questions.
