April 19th Daily Market Comments

The markets remain in an indecisive trading mode. The NASDAQ is showing a good strong Bullish Chart, as well as the transportation index. The transportation index is currently forming a trend kicker signal. If it closes above the T-line today, the prospects of a Scoop Pattern set up is highly probable, indicating more upside. The Dow is the weakest of the indexes but it is having a drag put on it by the much lower trading of IBM. Obviously the long positions are working well today but do not abandon any short positions in the portfolio that has not illustrated a confirmed reversal signal. The trading prognosis remains the same, have both long and short positions in the portfolio.
