Last week proved to be an eventful one, although you wouldn’t know it from the net changes in the indexes from the prior week. What started out as a relief rally quickly turned into another nightmare selloff for the bulls, before a late surge Friday erased much of the damage. In the end, the market lost more ground and the correction continued.
Bounces are still getting sold, and that’s a reminder that the character of the market has changed in a big way over the past few weeks. The January highs now tower high above current prices, and we still have yet to see a meaningful bounce take place since the downside turn began. At some point it will arrive, but until then there’s still plenty of reason for caution in the current environment.
As we head into a brand new week of trading, let’s examine some important levels in the indexes to keep an eye on in the days ahead. That will have the greatest influence on how individual stocks are going to move, so it’s where the trading week begins.
This clip was also posted over on the Trading Videos  site (as always), and perhaps you’ve seen it there – but in case you didn’t, I wanted to put it here on the blog for you.
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!
