Quite amazing markets. all 3 indexes making new highs despite an earnings recession

95% have reported for Q2 2016, the blended earnings decline for the S&P 500 is -3.2%. The second quarter marks the first time the index has recorded five consecutive quarters of year-over-year declines in earnings since Q3 2008 through Q3 2009.

And Q3 does not look much better with more than double giving negative guidance . For Q3 2016, 72 S&P 500 companies have issued negative EPS guidance and 30 S&P 500
companies have issued positive EPS guidance.

Another reason we are coming to a place here like Playstocks, unless you have 750K to invest you 2nd rate. These idiots keep killing the goose that once laid the Golden eggs.

Clients with less than $750,000 are now considered "mass affluent," meaning they may not get the same service as top customers because their financial needs are simpler, said Kendra Thompson, who heads the wealth and asset management division of consulting firm Accenture. Industry sources say that figure was closer to $250,000 before the financial crisis.

Markets could take a hit with a Brit exit vote. The rally today mostly on some positive news they would stay in EU, but I think it is too close to call, could go either way

Now don't go blaming it on Oil
Tech companies' earnings are down nearly 6% this quarter. Embodying the trend is Google (GOOG). It got pounded by the strong dollar, which hurt overseas sales. Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) also lost overseas revenue due to the strong dollar.

And the Apple is bruised too

This earnings period is looking bad, amazing the market is holding up. Long the S&P, the big stocks, not a bet I am making

Overall, S&P 500 earnings so far this quarter are down 8%. That marks the third quarterly decline in a row and the worst since 2009, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence.

The US market rally has me worried. Here is one reason why. Investors have more fear of missing a rally.

CNNMoney's Fear & Greed Index, which measures seven gauges of investor sentiment, hit Greed territory earlier this week for the first time since December 1.
And the index is only a few points away from moving into Extreme Greed mode. We haven't seen that in more than a year.

S&P 500 below January 1860 close, looks like it might be trying to find a bottom, but a drop below 1820 would not look good
