Closing Market Commentary For 04-10-2013
Low volume and the HFT tried to push the averages higher but bursts of profit taking kept that from happening.
I said yesterday if the SP500 would go above yesterday's red line in the chart AND stay there, it would be a very bullish signal. However late trading just before the market bell, there was considerable action on moderate volume where a lot of profit taking transpired.
The markets closed up and many bears were left with their mouths hanging open. Not much to add as the new numbers tend to be the headlines.
Again, my proprietary indicators are barely bullish contrary to market sentiment and signaling strong caution.
What we read this afternoon.
