Stock Market Outlook & Thanksgiving 2016 Holiday Schedule

November 20th, 2015 - Issue #810

In This Issue

1. Stock Market Outlook by Carbide Capital CTA

3. Economic Calendar

1. Stock Market Outlook by Carbide Capital CTA

What we like about Carbide CTA is their relatively low volatility of account equity and the non correlation to stock market performance

CTA Highlights:
• Discretionary CTA providing non-correlated returns through a long/short S&P options strategy
• Portfolio manager was previously the head trader for a multi-billion dollar hedge fund
• Comprehensive investment process incorporates fundamental data, technical analysis, and volatility into trading decisions

Carbide Capital outlook by CIO, Aaron Wallace

Market Outlook:
• Further upside in S&P 500 likely in near term, but volatility could increase
• Higher rates do not necessarily mean bull market will end
• Negative earnings and revenue growth remain headwind
After a significant correction occurred in August-September, the equity market experienced a sharp V-shaped recover during October. Now that the S&P 500 is approximately 3% from its all-time highs, it seems likely that equities could continue their ascent.
