  • The Iffy Bull
    The Bull has yet get a grip as the gravity of the Bear keeps it in check.

    Lackluster action hasn't given us much a trend to buy into. As price action on the major indexes remains below major moving averages we're in no position to think the upside of this market is the path of least resistance.

    However, it's often a mistake to short a dull market. While the strength of the Bull is iffy, we're holding a Buyer's Caution bias, or Yellow Flag, for lack of more conviction among Bears.

    Stay tuned,

  • Sellers Make Their Mark
    Heavy selling under major averages adds fuel to the Bears' cause.

    The technical picture has given us a new bearish look. But it's not enough to shift our market bias down from Buyer's Caution.

    Let's see how the week closes out. A more extensive analysis of the market is likely to reveal stronger signs of strengths and weaknesses. It's been a mistake to jump the gun too early in this choppy summertime market.

    Stay tuned,

  • Buyers Take It Up
    A heavy dose of buy-volume Tuesday doesn't change our outlook much.

    As the S&P 500 tests its 50-day moving average we don't want to lose sight of the fact that as long as action remains below the 200-day the market need to do more to convince us that it might be a bull.

    We're holding a Buyer's Caution bias, which basically is a neutral stance for us that respects the market's general leaning toward upward drift.

    In order for us to upgrade to Buyer's Edge, we need to see more dominant buying in conjunction with leading stocks hitting new highs.

    In order for us to downgrade to Seller's Edge we want to see that opposite.

    Stay tuned,
