The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 18544 on 8/5/16, as the stock market soared today.  The jobs report came in better than expected but I remain cautious going into fall.  At some point, the S&P 500 will see a correction back to its 200 day moving average now located at 2045 and rising.  Keep an eye on earnings from Shake Shack (SHAK) on Wednesday night.   We will be watching that stock closely in the stock picks group.

As of the close today, MGT Capital Investments (MGT)  is the top stock gainer in 2016

As of the close today, Vista Gold (VGZ) is the top stock gainer of 2016 above $2
