My indicators are giving bullish readings for the second week in a row, and I think a bullish trade on Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE:C).
The other prominent theme has been investors' ongoing affinity for inexpensive ETFs. While not all of the best ETFs are extremely cheap, there are plenty of strong funds out there with low expense ratios and those fees are falling. Additionally, basically every brokerage firm of note eliminated commissions on ETFs this year, so the asset class is becoming even more cost-effective to embrace.
This quarter has been an especially good one for Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC).
As winter comes, bears are hibernating, giving way to a bull market. Want some evidence? Just look at the performance of small-cap stocks.

Fintech stocks are set for decades. This bodes well for SQ stock. In spite of the geopolitical messes, demand for SQ services will persist.
Two weeks ago these SPDR ETFs told me that the rally was over. This is what they are telling me now. There are reasons to be bearish.
Earnings were mixed for the big bank stocks, but that could mask opportunity. Here are three big banks worthy of picking-up from the wreckage.
The market has rewarded shareholders as GS stock has continued to climb throughout the year. With more consumer initiatives like the much touted partnership with Apple credit card ahead, GS should again deliver strong earnings in the third quarter.

As the market looks to bounce back from Monday’s selloff the fiscal stimulus talks are still at the forefront, even though there is no tangible progress.The cyclical sectors are three of the top four best performers ahead of trading, with the SPDR Financial Sector ETF (XLF, +0.7%), the SPDR Energy Sector ETF (XLE, +0.7%) and the SPDR Industrials Sector ETF (XLI, +0.5%) all higher.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin have “continued to narrow differences” on stimulus negotiations, according to a Pelosi staffer.This morning, President Donald Trump said on Fox he wanted a bigger stimulus package than the Democrats want, which indicates that it’s the substance of the House proposal rather than the dollar amount that is a sticking point in negotiations. Trump also said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would be on board with a deal if Mnuchin and Pelosi can come to terms. Not long after, though, Senator Ted Cruz said he was skeptical about a deal before the election.The messages coming out of the Senate may indicated some pessimism about the president’s reelection prospects.
