MyTrendTimer : Russell 2000 analysis of September 26, 2007
Weekly Comment about this asset/index
Last week, the Federal Reserve decided to cut its interest rate by half a point. Many investors were surprised because they expected a smaller cut. This move was meant to soften the impact of the housing woes on the overall economy. On Tuesday, realtors say sales of existing homes drop for sixth consecutive month, to lowest level in 5 years. Still on Tuesday, the Conference Board said its Consumer Confidence Index fell to 99.8, an almost 6-point drop from the revised 105.6 in August. The reading was below the 104.5 that analysts had expected. Trend changed last week. Details available on the news page.
