It’s Just Like That


The broader market is in bounce mode. How long it lasts is any fool’s guess. It’s just like that.

This is where Bulls want to see new leadership take shape.¬†We’re paying special attention to the Russell 2K small cap index as this leader down has also lead the reversal and now faces key technical resistance at the 1110 level. Decisive closes above this level would boast a strong vote for a key achievement for the Bull. But we won’t be surprised to see a failure at the level given the the higher risk associated with small caps and the heightened fear out there. The stock market is long due for a correction, and we just don’t assume we’re putting in a new Bull leg here. Wait for multiple signs of strength for tells. We’re just playing it as it is. The market tells us what to do.

Only a handful of Growth Stock survivors maintain bullish trends¬†against a field of mostly broken chart patterns and severe price deterioration. We’ve taken note of the following from our master list of top stocks. These are what interest us, for better or worse.
