Large caps is where the action was yesterday. Nasdaq had a high volume churn. The number of breakouts is below 100 , indicating lack of buying. Number of recent breakouts from 100% plus list have failed after 2 or 3 days, which is a troubling sign.

Possible longs:

News play like AVNR are best bought as early as possible because bulk of their move happens on the day of the news. Plus it has 38 million float. The Biotechs have done well recently, so now every news in the industry is being bid up.

The market action is showing lot of divergence and it is not clear at this stage whether this is a pullback or possible reversal on Nasdaq and technology stocks. So I have reduced exposure, but earnings lead opportunities will work irrespective of market conditions. Any serious deterioration in market is most likely to be post earning or mid way through earnings, once earnings trend become more clear.

As a newbie...Can you explain to me what a 'signal' is. I had went to barcharts.com and noticed a section on Signals and stocks in the top 1%....but I did not understand. Thanks!

If you are complete newbie, I suggest you go through the FAQ and Learning center at Barchart.
The signals on barchart are derived using a combination of ADX, Moving Average vs Price,MACD Oscillator , and Bollinger Bands.
