Leadership in Sectors that Normally Lead Bull Markets

Larry Connors

The market is overbought and we’ll likely see a pause/small pullback within 1-3 days. The level of bullishness is very high (even higher than June) but outside of that the market is seeing leadership in sectors that normally lead bull markets.

Few Edges in the Major Indices Today

Larry Connors

The market is slightly overbought and yesterday’s Fed decision was in line with expectations. There are very few edges in the major indices today and we’ll wait patiently for the markets next move (it always comes). For today’s official Daily Battle Plan set-ups click here.

The Fed will take Center Stage Today

Larry Connors

That was a healthy rally yesterday and it allowed the Daily Battle Plan Model Portfolio to lock in gains in SPY on the close. The market is slightly overbought and the Fed will take center stage today. Obviously the main movement for the day will reflect their decision.

There is Nervousness Out There

Larry Connors

The overall market is now moderately oversold. Yesterday’s selling was more traditional of a pullback with QQQ and IWM declining sharply and the higher quality S&P 500 stocks, rising for the day as seen in SPLV (S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF). There is nervousness out there and another 1-2 days further of a pullback will [Read More]

High Yielding Stocks Oversold

Larry Connors

The overall market is slightly oversold. The main selling on Friday came into the lower volatility, high yielding stocks and many stocks in that universe are now very oversold. Another down day will offer a good opportunity to begin scaling-into US indexes. Today’s Potential Opportunities on Further Pullbacks: ETFs: EWA For today’s official Daily Battle [Read More]

Look at EWA

Larry Connors

The market is neutral but yesterday’s reversal was very good to see especially in looking at the leaders. If you are looking for an oversold country fund ETF, look at EWA. We don’t often see Country Funds with ConnorsRSI readings in the 1’s. So this is a rare event (EWA also has options). Today’s Potential [Read More]

The Next Up Wave Could be Substantial

Larry Connors

Yesterday I pointed out the market was oversold and you could see from the large number of ETFs on the list that a bounce was due. Interest sensitive stocks are still adjusting to the prospect of higher rates while the consumer cyclicals are on a tear. All signs are pointing to expanded US growth and [Read More]

Low Volatility Companies are Seeing a lot of Selling

Larry Connors

The market is oversold and the bigger concern is that like in July, the safer, low volatility companies are seeing a lot of selling. This fact is partially due to many having high dividends and the market is adjusting to reflect the potential for higher rates. It may take a few more days to get [Read More]

This Should Make for an Interesting Day

Larry Connors

Apple Live Event Day is today and as it goes, so goes the Nasdaq (and possibly the entire market). The S&P is neutral, the Nasdaq and IWM are overbought, and many country funds are oversold. It should make for an interesting day. For today’s official Daily Battle Plan set-ups click here.

No Great Short-Term Edges in Either Direction

Larry Connors

Friday morning’s slightly oversold market has now moved to Monday morning’s slightly overbought market thanks to Friday’s rally. At this point of time there are no great short-term edges in either direction and we’ll let the market play itself out today. For today’s official Daily Battle Plan set-ups click here.
