Volume totals were reported higher on the Nasdaq and the NYSE compared to Wednesday’s total which was not an encouraging sign. Decliners trumped advancers by over a 10-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and over an 11-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq exchange. New 52-week lows outnumbered new 52-week highs on both major exchanges. There were 0 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 3 issues that appeared on the prior session.
