U.S. stocks fell even as the euro rallied after investors digested a slew of economic data. Volume totals were reported higher on the Nasdaq and the NYSE compared to Tuesday’s total which was not an encouraging sign. Decliners trumped advancers by over a 3-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and the Nasdaq exchange. New 52-week lows outnumbered new 52-week highs on both major exchanges. There were only 3 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made a new 52-week high and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, lower than the 15 issues that appeared on the prior session.
