    VIDEO7:1707:17As the S&P 500 struggles, one trader charts where the index could head nextTrading Nation The S&P 500's breakneck rally has hit a wall. The benchmark index has fallen 7% from its record high set early this month and is tracking for its worst September since 2011.

    The NYC Schools Chancellor warned Thursday that the city's schools will not be able to reopen unless another 2,500 teachers are recruited, hired, and trained in the next 12 days. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously said that the city will need to bring in 2,000 additional teachers, bringing the total number needed to 4,500 if in-class and at-home live learning was to be successful.  Chancellor Richard Carranza told parents leaders on Wednesday night that talks were underway with City University of New York to hire laid-off adjunct professors and graduate students, yet no further details were offered on how the mass hiring is expected to take place in less than two weeks. Even if that number is hit,...
    Both LSU and Oklahoma are the only two teams to post seasons above .500 for the past 20 consecutive years and that’s a remarkable stat. Two of the best college football programs over the years have no question been the Oklahoma Sooners and LSU Tigers. Entering the 2020 campaign, both programs have high expectations, and LSU is fresh off its perfect 15-0 season. Things ended for the Tigers with their National Championship win over Clemson. But, just how good have the two teams been over the past 20 years? Believe it or not, they’re the only two programs that have finished above .500 for at least the past 20 campaigns. That stat is head-turning. ???? Only @OU_Football and @LSUfootball have...
    The S&P 500 Index has suddenly been contained within a volatile trading range. Three times the index has tried to break out over 3,425 points and failed each time (the last failure came right after the Federal Open Market Committee meeting on Sept. 16 and followed some strong post-FOMC buy programs that bought right into the top, after which the market failed).

    Golf’s highest-paying major will take place this week. The 2020 U.S. Open features not only the richest purse among golf’s majors, but also the richest winner’s share. The first recipient of that profitable payout is Gary Woodland, who made over $2 million last season by winning the event with a score of 271 (13-under-par). That said, look for golfers such as Dustin Johnson (2020 FedEx Cup playoffs winner), Brooks Koepka (winner of the 2017, ’18 U.S. Opens) and more to challenge for that payout this season. Again, even golfers who finish at the bottom of the cut line will make a pretty penny (by non-golfer standards); last year’s last-place finishers made over $21,000. Below is the full breakdown of...

Such an idea has gotten a strong endorsement from team owners as an “overwhelming majority,” is already on board. Strictly from a marketing and financial standpoint, it makes sense. More playoff affairs mean more televised games, which means more revenue on top of a lucrative TV deal that reels in over $700 million for Manfred and MLB. And that comes in an...
    New York (CNN Business)America's booming stock market is a flawed yardstick for measuring Main Street's recovery from the pandemic. But that doesn't stop President Donald Trump from repeatedly pointing to the V-shaped rebound on Wall Street as proof that most Americans are doing well again."Stocks are owned by everybody," Trump said during Tuesday's town hall on ABC. "Look, we're having a tremendous thing in the stock market, and that's good for everybody, but people that aren't rich own stock and they have 401(k)'s." The performance of the stock market is so disassociated with the economic experience of the vast majority of Americans -- particularly the middle class."

    New York (CNN Business)Recent record highs for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are not indicative of what's really going on with the broader market, which is this: Most stocks are still having a pretty tough 2020.Sure, the S&P 500 is up about 3% so far this year. That's not bad, especially given all the volatility in the market and the severe slump in the economy since March because of coronavirus. However, the index is is weighted by market value. That means that the strong performances of the five tech giants that dominate the blue chips -- Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), Google owner Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB) -- distort the S&P 500's overall return.It's one reason some half-jokingly...
    THE IRS could owe many Americans $500 from the first stimulus – but they need to claim it by September 30.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview Thursday that he would keep an enduring U.S. troop presence in the Middle East if elected president. “These ‘forever wars’ have to end. I support drawing down the troops. But here’s the problem, we still have to worry about terrorism and [the Islamic State],” Biden told military newspaper Stars and Stripes in a phone interview. Biden supports a “small U.S. military footprint” whose primary mission would be to facilitate special operations against the Islamic State in Iraq or Syria (ISIS), or other terrorist organizations, according to the paper. Biden said there should be a “maximum” of 1,500 to 2,000 on the ground, but did not specify where he meant. Trump has...

    London (CNN Business)The United Kingdom, which is one of the few countries to report monthly GDP data, said on Friday that its economy grew by 6.6% in July compared to the previous month — putting it on track for record growth in the third quarter. All good? Not exactly.The growth was slightly slower than in June, when the pace of expansion was 8.7%. And economists say that future gains will be much harder to come by."July was probably the last of the big step ups in activity and a full recovery probably won't be achieved until early 2022," said Thomas Pugh, UK economist at Capital Economics. The trend could be replicated in other large economies around the world. The end...

    In my previous technical post, I reviewed the downside risk for cryptocurrencies of a rebound in the US dollar against a basket of major currencies. Effectively, the US dollar has been rebounding for a week and this fundamental factor played its part in the correction of cryptos, but it is above all the sell-off of the Nasdaq star stocks that has hit the cryptocurrency market. Does the Volume Profile reveal another wave of correction? Since its highs on August 17, Bitcoin’s price has lost more than 20%, taking altcoins with it. The market has stabilized for five sessions on the $ 10,000 and it is working a price area that can be seen as the technical...
    It is fairly obvious that NASCAR races are long, and there is a slight chance of tediousness. To combat that, the governing body has done its level best to implement changes to raise the excitement factor. However, Kevin Harvick recently spoke about 500 mile races. He believes that these kind of races should only be limited to NASCAR’s crown jewel events. “There’s no reason that any race outside of a ‘crown jewel’ race is longer than 500 miles,” Harvick said. “It’s not something that is really even necessary in today’s day and age.” In NASCAR terminology, a “crown jewel’ race somewhat resembles a signature event in the sport. One example is the Indianapolis 500, which is the crown jewel for...
