Momentum leaders are faltering

In last few weeks  a clear theme is emerging, the momentum leaders that lead the advance in last one year are faltering. Many have broken down on high volume. Some are in longer term range.

Not only are the momentum leaders faltering . but other stocks which did not have spectacular rallies but had been up for the years are also faltering.

A narrower group of stocks continue to lead the advance. As we have seen many times this year such divergence has not been uncommon in last 12 month. It has not been a rally killer so far.

Every time the market starts selling the momentum leaders you see some small group of stocks emerge as new leaders and we see same thing happening now.

If you look at the Market Monitor number yesterday, 228 stocks were down . That tells you the sellers were dominating the action.  But if you were trading some of the below mentioned stocks you would not feel that way.
