As we observed earlier, Summer started with  the US stock market picking up momentum. Economic indicators have, as predicted,  helped: April New Home Sales, April Pending Home Sales , and April Durable Orders and GDP growth all  beat expectations or were close. And now, the job market is heating up, with the employers facing a challenge, good for those seeking jobs: worker shortage. The  persistent weaknesses in the internationa markets have been factored into the market performance:  oil markets, the slowing Chinese economy, the never ending Middle East wars and refugee crisis and the growing uncertainties and sometimes chaos in once promising developing economies, such as Argentina, Brasil, Venezuela, and South Africa, Angola, Saoud Arabia, and Nigeria remain major concerns, all are known factors.  Investors appear to have shrugged off these nuisances along with  the risk from the pending decision by the FED to raise short term interest rates. Result: Since January, Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOJ) has jumped from a low  of  15766,71 to 17,865.34, or  13%.
