Market Strategy Weekly
December 1, 2023

Strategas Investment Strategist Ryan Grabinski talks through the better-than-expected third quarter earnings season before discussing the state of the U.S. consumer and labor market on the heels of another strong Black Friday.


Market Gauge

Gauge shifts lower as the U.S. Dollar and the Technical Picture both move to the "Unfavorable" column.  

U.S. Dollar: A strengthening dollar could pose a risk for American exporters and emerging economies at a time when geopolitical uncertainty is heightened. 

Technical Picture: Only 41% of S&P 500 firms' share prices are above their 200-day moving average, which is not a favorable indicator for the market.

See the report for more information about the Market Gauge and how it works.  (last published October 16).
