It Makes Little Sense Going too Heavy Here

Larry Connors

Thursday was the pause day, Friday was the rally today. In bull markets, Monday would be the follow-through day and it was very good. The market is now slightly overbought and due for a pause but the behavior for the past three days has been constructive. There is a lot of money that was moved [Read More]

We Now get the Chance to See the True Health of the Market

Larry Connors

Daily Battle Plan subscribers should have locked in their gains in the full position in SPY. Thursday was the pause day, Friday was the rally today. In bull markets, today would be the follow-through day. We now get the chance to see the true health of the market. For today’s official Daily Battle Plan set-ups [Read More]

If There’s Buying Demand Out There, it will be Seen Today

Larry Connors

Another day of hedge funds meeting margin calls. Yesterday (and the last hour of Wednesday) was about selling the winners and covering the shorts on most beaten down stocks. This led to the solid defensive companies getting sold and the junk being covered (see symbol XONE as one of many possible examples). This same scenario [Read More]

Sentiment has Completely Changed

Larry Connors

Good Morning. The market is short-term neutral today. The VIX broke above yearly highs and when this occurs it begins touching many things. The market has lost over 8% since mid-September and no one can give a concrete reason why. This coincided with record levels of bullishness by equity advisors (many who were as bearish [Read More]

I Keep Writing this Message

Larry Connors

The market is short-term neutral today. In a bull market, yesterday’s gains would have carried through. In a transitioning market, yesterday’s reversal down was normal. I keep writing this message and will continue to do-so; please use caution here.

Too Many Attractive Prices Available

Larry Connors

Good Morning. The market is now fully oversold. There are bargains galore this morning and I would expect the value players to begin stepping in with size. With SPY and many other indexes below their 200 day ma, it may slow the buying a bit (a small amount) but there’s too many attractive prices available [Read More]

Be Cautious Here

Larry Connors

Oversold, overbought and oversold in three consecutive days. The good news is that the swings have provided some wonderful opportunities, especially for volatility trading. The bad news is this much daily movement is often a prelude to a transitioning market. This is not assured. All bull to bear markets occur as volatility rises. But not [Read More]

The Two Concerns I Have

Larry Connors

Tuesday saw 94% of the S&P stocks losing value along with 97% of the Nasdaq 100 stocks declining. Wednesday essentially the opposite. Short-term oversold to short-term overbought. And that’s the way markets work. Today the market is slightly overbought. The Fed sent a major message that they’re going to step in whenever needed just as [Read More]

The Market is Either…

Larry Connors

Today the market is now extremely oversold with 94% of the S&P stocks losing value yesterday along with 97% of the Nasdaq 100 stocks declining. There was panic selling in the last few hours and when you add it all up, the market is either transitioning into a bear market or it’s getting closer to [Read More]

Not a Good Sign Friday’s Rally didn’t Follow Through

Larry Connors

Today the market is now neutral but it was not a good sign that Friday’s rally didn’t follow through. I’ve mentioned since July that the scope of the market is changing and with volatility quick to rise, and one day rallies being followed by declines, the market at a minimum is looking to correct at [Read More]
