WALL STREET CRAPS STOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR FEBRUARY 17,2014

February 16th, 2014

craps front coverSTOCK MARKET OBSERVATIONS FOR February 17, 2014: The stock market quickly reached overbought levels by the end of last week. While this rally has been impressive by its straight-up action, it could still stall out in this current price range. The lagging performance of the Dow Jones Transportation Average is setting up a classic Dow Theory Sell Signal should the DJIA reach new highs while the Transports clearly don’t. It’s probably too early to short the market (I don’t recommend this as a wise strategy) but it certainly isn’t a time to go long the broad market.

Key underlying market indicators show the following

***********

My advice for traders and investors for this week is this: look for a chance to sell on any strength during the coming week. The majority of internal indicators are in overbought positions now. The optimal time to sell is when the majority of indicators have started to come down after reaching their highest points. That means that  some additional rallying could occur over the short-term. But selling into strength after an extended rally is usually a good strategy. If a small correction starts this week, then you may have another chance to hop on-board the long side in well-chosen individual stocks. Remember that “overbought” does not necessarily mean “sell.” It means “do not buy now.”
