Bears took yesterday’s screen game with 38 sell signals and 10 buy signals. That reverses Monday’s output, which I neglected to post. That score was 32 buys to 20 sells.
We’ve had a couple days of 45 to 56 sell signals over the past 10 days, But that’s still well below the the thrust of the 155 buy signals that started the 6 month cycle up phase back on March 28. That was the Big Kahuna. That wave has waned, but there’s no big counter wave yet.
The 5 day total is 84 buys to 127 sells. Weak, but not intermediate term thrust territory. Good chart reading and picking should allow for gains in both directions. Bad reading and picking will lead to two way losses. That’s the problem with rangebound markets. When it comes to swing trading, strong trends will cover for a multitude of sins. Trading ranges are meat grinders that can chew you up.
Just a flesh wound.
This is swing trade buy signals vs. sell signals from yesterday’s action. I screen all stocks and ETFs from the NYSE and NASD, excluding those with less than an average of 1 million shares per day traded, and selling for less than $6 per share.
Here is today’s output.
