Still Waiting

It was a lackluster session today. Volume was weak as most traders do not want to take a position especially an overnight position for fear of the worst.

Yes, the market is still waiting to hear the final details (if any) from the bailout plan. Until then I expect to see similar price action going forward, with a downside bias.

The major benchmarks have yet to move in a oversold state which is a bit surprising, so I am still sitting patiently on the sidelines.

As I mentioned yesterday, there are a few oversold reading in the Sector ETFs I follow, namely consumer discretionary (XLB) and retail (RTH). While the two have amde it through my initial screen they have yet to come close to a signal in my proprietary overbought/oversold indicators.

I am under the weather today so I apologize for the short post. Hopefully, this nagging cold will leave soon.

Have a great night!
