Bearish Engulfing Bars Warrant Caution

Following gains of more than 7% in just a dozen days, today we saw the market averages tag new recovery highs and then reverse sharply to finish in the red.  The bearish engulfing bars which resulted on the daily charts aren’t pretty, especially given the elevated volume which accompanied them.

It hints that this market is finally showing us a little fatigue, and that perhaps more than a few buyers morphed into sellers – at least for today.

If we did see a pullback begin to develop here, it wouldn’t at all be an unhealthy thing.  Several dips have occurred since the March lows were set, with each of them being bought.  Now, at some point that is going to change – it’s imperative to understand that – but we don’t yet have enough technical evidence to jump to conclusions at this point for anything but the next few days.  And on that note, caution is warranted after today’s action.

Just a little while ago over on the trading videos site, I posted the following video. In it, I discuss what took place today, and offer up a few levels on the downside we could see tested if Wednesday’s selling pressure sees follow through.

Let me highly suggest clicking the “HD” on the video player and then going full-screen for best quality.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you here soon with more. Until then…

Trade Like a Bandit!
