The Fed as expected did not raise rates; the market celebrated this event by gaining 1% on the day. As a matter of fact, mostly everything rallied including oil, metals, and bonds. Going forward this combination of gaining 1% and oil, metals, and bonds rallying after a Fed meeting has not been kind for future returns going out 10-20 days as you can see on the chart below. The initial pop was almost always retraced.
With that being said, we still have a decent amount of stocks that are set up properly that one can take advantage of.
XTLY, BREW, MIFI, DXCM, CVLT, Q, IMS, GRUB, TWTR, SAFM, BOFI, MOMO, QTWO, are the stock of interest on the long side if and only if they go through yesterday’s high.
No one has said it better than Stockbee; stocks move in momentum bursts that last typically 3-5 days. Within these short term burst, a small cap can go up 8-20% and large-cap $5 to $40.
My opinion and outlook are subject to change as new information comes in.
