|Includes: SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), QQQ, SPY
The market had a relatively quiet day as one would expect before the jobs report tomorrow morning.  However, many individual stocks are experiencing selling and/or struggling at key moving averages.  The DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA) and S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) traded above our resistance levels intraday but closed below them.  The Nasdaq Composite (QQQQ) never reached its next resistance level intraday.   With the current state of the stock market direction uptrend we continue to believe the prudent strategy is to not put new money to work in new stock positions and to protect profits and limit losses.
