Thoughts & Comments
  1. Candlestick count is back in Bullish territory.
  2. We got a little bit more of a pull-back today as expected.
  3. XLI has broken to the down side of a rising channel it has been in since June.
  4. UUP has formed a bullish harami.
  5. There is a wave count emerging in the market. Watch for a rise into wave 4.
