Due for a Rally, But Bears Still In Control

I’m gonna keep it real short this week and stick to the meat and potatoes of the technicals.  After all, it is Father’s Day and the US Open is winding down.. :)  Hope you’re all enjoying a little BBQ.  The market continued to deteriorate last week with distribution still going on, but this market is due for some kind of short term oversold bounce as indicated by stochastics.  Of course no indicator is perfect by itself and stochastics can remain in oversold territory for quite awhile, but the odds are there for a bit of a spike next week.  However, bears are still in control and outside of some short term trading opportunities on the long side, it’s probably best for most people to sit on the sidelines for a bit longer.  Keep an eye out for a rally in the indices to test resistance levels (Nasdaq – 200dma, Dow and S&P – 50 day moving averages).
