There are many positive signs for the market, but it's still tough to find a good entry. Positives include a strong volume pattern underlying positive price action. This is a sign of accumulation by the "elephants" or big money. Price shows a bottoming formation and is making higher lows and highs.

The problem for entry is that stochastics, while not extremely overbought, are still above 50. A better entry would require more of a pullback.

Those looking to enter still have a low risk setup. Entry on weakness today (Tuesday), with a stop just under Friday's low, provides a 3:1 reward to risk ratio if using the recent high as a target. Note that because stochastics are above 50, I don't consider this a high probability trade. Still, the good risk ratio makes it a justifiable trade.
