 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ Composite underperformed the other two major indexes with a drop of 6.8% for the week (Friday to Friday close). The index is now underwater for the year for the first time and is officially in a correction with a drop of 10% from its most recent high. The drop has been precipitous but some analysts have said this was overdue. We need only look back a year to see a similar correction, and while history doesn't necessarily repeat itself, we may see a similarly rapid rise as short sellers rush to cover.

All our market trend indicators are down, which augurs ill for the number of breakouts that can be expected in the near future. This would be  a good time to sit on the sidelines and wait for a recovery. Note that this can happen before our trend indicators turn up, as  they are lagging indicators, but signs  of a steep rise would be an opportunity to begin reentering the markets.

 Weekly Breakout Report  

The number of breakouts fell to 22 this week.  gains were in general meager and the average gain was  negative by Friday's close. This reinforces the point made above,  that staying on  the sidelines  is a good short term strategy.
