Charles Green here, Senior Market Analyst here at Traders Agency.
Here’s today Market Pulse 360.
Market Pulse 360 for November 2, 2023
As I expected, the Fed leaves interest rates unchanged.
This is the second consecutive pause.
I believe the Fed is done raising the Fed Funds rate (the short-term interest rate).
The 10-year Treasury yield has plunged after the announcement – falling below the 4.75% level (it was close to 4.95% just before the announcement).
This bodes well for the market, and makes it more likely we get back above Nasdaq 13,000 this week – depending on a benign Non-Farms Payroll number on Friday.
This is good news for the market, but we must get back above Nasdaq 13,000 for confirmation the market has stabilized.
Insider Effect – While we wait for confirmation the market has stabilized, it’s worth remembering we’re still neck deep in earnings season, which always presents opportunities no matter what the larger market is doing.
A Bit More About Me
My specialty is understanding financial markets and the drivers that influence longer-term direction. I’ve been an active trader focusing primarily on stocks for over 20 years.
- Been an adjunct finance professor for nearly 20 years
- Worked as a financial consultant with Merrill Lynch managing millions of dollars
- Earned a Master of Science Degree in International Business and Finance from Georgetown University and a Bachelor in Arts Degree in International Studies from George Mason University.
- Spent 14 years as a Marine (I enlisted at age 17) traveling all around the world
My education, work and life experience gives me a broad view of the world, financial markets, and life in general that informs my trading and investment decisions.
My passion is helping others to take advantage of the best market opportunities to achieve their financial goals.
This gives me the greatest satisfaction, and it’s the reason why I continue to teach in the classroom and outside of it today with every activity in which I engage. I believe that I succeed only if clients succeed.
I am a very unlikely success story. And this is only because I believe that anything is possible with the right knowledge, focus, and winning mentality! When you have that, success is just a matter of time.
