The market is way oversold but it continues to get weaker. It was a 500 plus day to the downside on Market Monitor, that indicates very high selling pressure. This is 5th day of 500 plus selling after a brief one day upside last week.
The futures are indicating bullish open like yesterday. The overnight markets were up on speculation about new Chinese stimulus package.

The sectors leading to the upside currently are:
MG352,Tobacco Products - Other
MG738,Auto Parts Stores
MG741,Sporting Goods Stores
MG852,Internet Information Providers
The sectors leading to the downside currently are:
MG313,Housewares & Accessories
MG523,Health Care Plans
MG712,Resorts & Casinos
