Major Averages Erased Early Gains and Closed in the Red

The Dow hit its low for the day in the final 30 minutes, wiping out an early advance of 126 points on Wednesday.  Lighter volume totals were reported on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, but that did little to ease investors' jitters. Breadth was negative as declining issues beat advancers by 6-1 on the NYSE and 5-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. The new 52-week lows totals still outnumbered new 52-week highs on both the Nasdaq exchange and the NYSE, and new highs totals slumped to the single digits on both exchanges again. There was only 1 high-ranked company from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made a new 52-week high and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, down from 12 on the prior session. There were losses for all of the 15 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page.

 

The S&P 500 appeared set to extend its biggest three-day rally in a month, but the session's early gains were erased and throughout the session the market continually weakened as investors fretted about global growth and signs of discord in Europe. Finland's parliament approved the expansion of the fund, bringing to nine the number of euro members voting in favor of ratification. European markets were mixed after the European Union proposed a tax on financial transactions that would take effect in 2014 and raise about 57 billion euros a year. Meanwhile, investors awaited the results of tomorrow's German parliament vote to expand the European bailout fund.

A report on U.S. durable goods orders was not as weak as expected. August orders declined 0.1%, whereas analysts were looking for a drop of 0.2%. The report showed orders for U.S. capital goods climbed in August by the most in three months, a sign business investment continues to support the recovery.

Amazon.com Inc (AMZN -2.45%) rallied as the company prepared to unveil its first tablet computer, the Kindle Fire, priced at $199. The move takes aim at Apple's iPad. Shares of Apple Inc (AAPL -0.56%) fell.  Jabil Circuit Inc (JBL +8.40%) was a leader in the technology group after the company said it sees profits in the current quarter coming in above estimates. Family Dollar Stores Inc (FDO -1.61%) and technology consulting company Accenture Plc (ACN +0.34%) reported earnings that beat expectations.

Metals stocks took the biggest hits. Commodity prices weakened on signs that demand in China may slow. China's benchmark stock index retreated to its lowest level since July of last year. Oil settled down over $3 per barrel in New York. Silver prices fell -5%, and copper prices were down -7%. Agricultural products were not immune. Soybeans dropped to a ten-month low. The 10-year Treasury note was down 7/32 to yield 2.00%. A government auction of five-year notes drew the highest demand in four months.

The market environment (M criteria) is clearly under pressure and back in a correction after the heavy wave of distributional action last week. The latest confirmed rally may, at best, be considered barely alive by the fact that the Nasdaq Composite Index and S&P 500 Index are still fighting to stay above their respective Day 1 (8/09/11) lows.

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Industrial Average's low last Thursday undercut its 8/09/11 low, officially ending the Dow's prior confirmed rally.

Widespread Losses Hurt Most Groups Worse Than Retail Index

Commodity-linked groups led broad-based declines as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -4.59%) and Oil Services Index ($OSX -4.68%) took big hits and the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -2.96%) fell. The Healthcare Index ($HMO -4.28%) also was smacked with a greater than -4% loss.  The Bank Index ($BKX -3.45%and Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -3.29%) added to the market's negative bias. The tech sector saw unanimous losses from the Networking Index ($NWX -3.97%), Biotechnology Index ($BTK -3.27%), Semiconductor Index ($SOX -2.91%), and Internet Index ($IIX -2.38%).  

Charts courtesy www.stockcharts.com

PICTURED: The The Retail Index ($RLX -0.43%) held up relatively well on such a negative session, ending the day with a modest loss.  It is consolidating near its 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines which recently converged and crossed over, forming a "death cross".

Struggling Near 200-Day Average After Recent News Of Public Offering

Exlservice Holdings Inc (EXLS -$0.11 or -0.46% to $22.56) has been testing support at its 200-day moving average (DMA) line with lighter than average volume on recent sessions following damaging losses with heavier volume that were indicative of distributional pressure. Its 50 DMA line may act as resistance if it rallies again, while a rebound above that short-term average is needed to truly help its outlook, technically. Its Accumulation/Distribution rating has fallen from a B to a D- since it was last shown in this FSU section on 9/07/11 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Gain With Twice Average Volume Lifts Firm Above 'Max Buy' Level". After barely trading above its earlier high, it promptly slumped back near its prior highs and its 50 DMA line. Then, rather than finding support, it gapped down and triggered a technical sell signal on 9/13/11 following news of a new Public Offering. More damaging losses leading to a violation of its 200 DMA and recent lows may trigger another more worrisome technical sell signal. That may prompt it to be dropped from the Featured Stocks list, meanwhile it is already -15% off its 52-week high.

It reported earnings +52% on +40% sales revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 versus the year ago period. Quarterly comparisons (C criteria) have shown mostly impressive sales and earnings increases. A downturn in its FY '08 earnings was previously noted as a small flaw with respect to the A criteria of the fact-based investment system.
