There was profit-taking a few hours after I mentioned doing the same thing during yesterdays session. Tech took the most amount of profit off the table as this is where most of the gains have been made. In recent weeks I have been referring to the sector rotation and yesterday we saw it in action as Nasdaq closed some 2% lower. Volume was not too far off the usual recent levels though. Healthcare, Financials and Industrials gained the most. From the MaR webinar, you will know that Financials is the area we have been interested in of late.
The market still looks healthy and pullbacks are part of the market staying healthy. The health deteriorates when the support levels are broken. So far most of the trades are holding at support zones.
So today is a stand aside day and we want to see how the session ends.
Lets go trade!
