Small Cap Stocks Along with Big Cap Leaders like AAPL stock and BIDU stock lead stocks higher
Big technology stocks lead the market with AAPL stock breaking into new highs. BIDU stock was another big technology stock breaking into new high territory. Another big day of gains for the market as we saw the S&P 500 break above resistance with volume coming in higher on the index than Friday’s inflated from options expiry. This sign of strength does not come often and today proved the market’s strength. The key has been the ability to hang onto your leaders for big gains. We are enjoying this market rally and it appears we have plenty of room to run.
There have been plenty of market pundits, including Doug Kass who have called for the market to consolidate. Just last week Doug Kass called for the market to pull back and began shorting the market. If the market was that easy we would have many more people making big money in the stock market. However, it isn’t easy as support and resistance as today proved. Doubting this uptrend has come at a hefty cost as we continue to move higher.
We are sticking with our stocks as we are seeing continued strength and with this market cooperating we have more room to run. Perhaps we see this market pull back for a few days but we could see a 1998 scenario when the market did not consolidate for months. We are setting ourselves up for quite a run just make sure you are not chasing stocks by buying at proper entry levels.
Throw out the overbought indicators at this point as we have blown through resistance levels and now we have entered into a new realm. If we do see a pullback, make sure to pay attention to your stocks, the leaders. Stocks are allowed to have natural reactions, but as long as they do not breach major moving averages.
Leading stocks continue to act well and this market continues to show strength. It is very difficult to cast too much doubt on the market. We will stay true to our discipline and remain in control of this market.
