Major Indexes Remain Indecisive
On Friday, ahead of a holiday weekend, major indexes closed basically unchanged on mixed volume. Major indexes are trading at 5 year highs and displaying stagnant action signaling pullbacks may occur near-term. Anticipate backing and filling with a TREND working higher. Orderly pullbacks are welcome to digest gains and rebuild momentum. Numerous leading stocks remain extended. As displayed below, there are only a few candidates close / meeting the criteria. It is a very selective market for purchase considerations. Any current or new purchases should apply a tight stop-loss (3 - 5%) to protect capital during pullbacks.
