Market Looking for Guideance May 6, 2017

May 5, 2017 – Looking at the chart below a few things stick out to me.  The last correction was minor because volume during the small blip down was very light.  Volume did increase (back to about average) on the price recovery.  But . . the last two days has volume falling off, plus the bars this week have had a narrow spread.

It just appears that buying is rather light, but there is also little selling.  Earnings have been OK, a few surprises, but generally good.  This market has priced in good earnings plus a number of things promised too.  I’m still looking for an Up Thrust bar, closing near the Low, on high volume.  So far that’s NOT the case and this market just grinds higher.

I did see a comment by a trader that breath is narrow, that is, few stocks are leading market average / indexes higher.  I would agree.  That bears watching and the longer it continues, the more concerned we should get.  Small and Mid cap stocks have been lagging behind Large cap stocks.  I’ll watch the price bars and volume along with the lower trend line and support levels for clues on further action.  For the time being, I have to stay invested.

Here’s what areas are doing best right now:

That’s it for now.  Have a good week.  …………..  Tom  ………….
