46 Week Rally Ends; Market In A Correction

The major averages and leading stocks are now in a correction as the major averages sliced and closed below their respective multi month upward trend lines and their 50 DMA lines on Friday. So far, the market’s reaction has been tepid at best to the latest round of economic and earnings data. The recent series of distribution days coupled with the deleterious action in the major averages suggests large institutions are aggressively selling stocks. The market just ended its 46th week since the March lows and we are now waiting for a new follow-through day to be produced before resuming any buying efforts. Until that occurs, patience is key, and the path of least resistance is down. Trade Accordingly.
