Market Roundup

Posted on 2/28/2008
  • Market breadth has steadily improved over last month
  • Breakout based strategies like Double Trouble and IBD 200 work better in such environment.
  • How long the bullish phase will last is not clear and there was some profit taking today.
  • However as everyone is skeptical of the rally, it might persist longer.
  • Number of new leaders (stocks with high IBD EPS ratings) are breaking out.
  • Most of them have 2-3 month bases or consolidations and you will see number of cup with handle breakouts.

The worst is behind us

Posted on 2/25/2008
Market Monitor: Bearish

* The market continues to be volatile and rallies are still finding it difficult to break out of range.
* However the intense selling pressure phase is over. Market Monitor readings have shown steady improvements.
* Most probably we are putting in a bottom. Market may not immediately start rallying, but most of the weakness is behind us.
* The McClellan Summation Index is also confirming the same.
* The worst is most probably behind us.
