Stocks Quiet Ahead Of The Hurricane
The stock market remains very strong. The major indices slid last week but were quiet as the country waits for Hurricane Irma to hit Florida. and parts of the East Coast. Stepping back, the action remains healthy as the market continues to trade just below record highs and sellers remain at bay. From where I sit, the market action remains bullish. The fact that the market refuses to fall in any significant fashion illustrates how strong the bulls are right now. Additionally, it is bullish to see volume dry up as the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq sit on their respective 50 day moving average lines. It is important to note that the Transports and the small-cap Russell 2000 continue to under-perform their peers which is not ideal. Stepping back, until we see any heavy volume selling, the bulls remain in clear control.
