The major stock market indexes failed to cross over key price resistance levels (50 day moving averages) and then staged negative price reversals today. As a result, our Current Market Outlook remains “Uptrend Under Pressure” with a “yellow” light. While the days action was disappointing for the bulls, there was a silver lining; the sell-off came in lower trading volume lessening the sting of the decline.
Recent technical action has been encouraging as Tuesday action marked a “follow-thru” day in the current rally attempt. However, our proprietary three stage, sell-signal discipline currently stands at stage two and reflects the elevated risk level currently facing the market.
While the markets uptrend is working to reestablish itself, investors should continue to build a watch list of stocks with improving relative performance lines and only make smaller than normal new purchases in growth stocks. It appears that last weeks rapid correction may try to pass as quickly as it came, but historically that rarely happens. Our disciplined market signal process will ultimately keep our clients on the right side of the major trend.
Have a Triumphant day! ®
