NASDAQ OMX Weekly Market Pulse - Markets Pause to Assess Economy, Valuations, Tapering & Holiday Season Sales

U.S. market indices were marginally lower after hitting multi-year and, in some cases, record highs. Bulls are looking for a catalyst for the next leg up, while bears fret the speed of the recent moves higher and potential Fed "tapering."

"With the holiday shortened trading week and end-of-year portfolio considerations, some traders took profits while assessing current market levels," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director of NASDAQ OMX Global Information Services. "How investors are viewing valuations across the global markets will be an interesting catalyst for the start of 2014 as the spread between U.S. and emerging markets has increased significantly in 2013."

The NASDAQ EM Europe Index (NQEMEU) fell 4.3% as Eurozone GDP and Spanish Manufacturing PMIs data caused concern. Deflation anxieties in the region have some calling for further ECB action.

The PHLX Gold/Silver Sector Index (XAU) and NASDAQ Commodity Silver Index ER (NQCISIER) declined 6.1%, continuing a yearlong downward trend. These indices are falling in part because inflation has not yet presented itself in the data and also because potential monetary actions would make precious metals less attractive.

The NASDAQ 100 Index (NDX) which tracks the top 100 non-financial stocks rose 1.5% as a number of technology and communications companies outperformed.
