Early on today it appeared the market was going to have another material selloff but staged a comeback in the afternoon.  However, the gains didn't show strong participation from investors.  Once again, we are leaving the support/resistance levels the same for the DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA), S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY), and Nasdaq Composite (QQQQ) (see below).  Stocks appear to be at a reflection point looking for a catalyst to resume the stock market direction uptrend or a reason to go into correction mode and possible establish a new base safer for opening new positions in stocks.  We continue to believe the prudent approach is to not open new positions, take profits and cut losses quickly.
