We are now operating under a Dow Theory Buy Signal as the Dow Industrial Average closed at 12,400.03 on Monday above its February 18th high at 12,391.29. Beware that the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index (SOX) is a drag in the opposite direction being down 9.5% from its February high. The Dow Industrials is up 0.1%, Dow Transports is up 1.4%, as is the Russell 2000 versus February highs. The SOX thus questions the sustainability of the Dow Theory Buy.
