WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR OCTOBER 27, 2013

October 26th, 2013

craps front coverMARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR October 27, 2013: The stock market has been marching upwards for the past 13 trading sessions. During this coming week, the time of this rally will have matched the previous downleg and thus, be ripe for a pullback. I would not be surprised to see a new closing high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average sometime next week which would mark the high of this phase of the rally. But current readings of key breadth indicators show that the general market has already begun its correction. That could mean that the correction will be sharp in terms of price, but short in duration.

Key market indicators show the following:

For now, my advice for traders is to be on the sidelines as the stock market peaks this coming week. Since I don’t see a good way to participate on the downside, I’d prefer to wait until the market becomes oversold and then play the next rally. Retests of highs and lows has not been characteristic of this market. Instead, the stock market goes up until it runs out of time and then retreats into a similar reversal. Playing the extremes in breadth oscillators seems like the best way to go….. especially to the upside. And in this market, playing the downside has been a study in frustration and capital loss.
