September 2023 Core Commentary Posted at: September 8th - 3:14 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Welcome everyone. Markets are in a seasonal pullback mode right now. Several factors come into play next week. First will be AAPL with the new Iphone 15 rollout (typically a sell the news situation) on Tuesday. Next is news for GOOG and MSFT under antitrust, a UAW strike looming Friday, and finally getting ready for the Fed on 9/19-20. All this will lead to market jitters so I choose to go the way we have and wait till Monday to look the field over. I will update this Commentary Monday before the market opens. Our pre-trade analysis shows our week as being very strong over the past 20 years so we have that and an oversold Nasdaq that could give us a short rally.
