Monday Recap

Markets Monday surged higher on reports Europe may look to rectify their current economic woes. The S&P 500 led the way with a 2.3% gain, compared to the Nazz 1.4% advance. Volume was not as impressive as the days price action. Some of the better performing sectors of the day were banks and retail. JPM advanced 7%, MS 6%, USB WFC both 5%. Retail winners included JWN up 6%, LTD WFM both up 5%. Laggard groups were casinos. WYNN LVS both lost 200 day support intraday, but WYNN managed to reclaim it by the end of the session. Some leaders are in the process of developing bases. 6 that need one more day for a legitimate handle (handles must be at least 5 days in length) are IACI TSCO CBOE CPHD DECK VFC. Of course we already identified cup with handles UA 80.90, EBAY 34.00. Cup with high handle is BBBY 61.01. Some individual stocks are giving you good setups with definitive stops. DE is one which has now found support at 66 twice recently. A move below that number would be your out. Even with todays move, a skeptical stance must be maintained. The amount of negativity is pervasive, which is a concern, but the clearly defined trend is downward. Lets not get in front of a moving train here. If the market wants to move higher, let it prove it on solid volume. If not look for spots of resistance to initiate shorts soon. ACN PAYX report earnings after the close Tuesday.
