Major Averages Posted Gains But Volume Lacked Conviction

The major averages dug in their heels and showed signs of halting their latest correction, finishing with unanimous gains on Thursday. Advancers led decliners by a 3-2 ratio on the Nasdaq exchange and by an 11-4 ratio on the NYSE. The volume totals were reported lighter on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange versus the prior session's totals, whereas gains on heavier volume would have signaled more serious accumulation of stocks by institutional investors. New 52-week lows outnumbered new 52-week highs on the Nasdaq exchange yet on the NYSE the new highs and new lows totals were almost evenly matched. There were 15 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, down a notch from a total of 16 on the prior session. On the Featured Stocks Page there were gains from 11 of the 19 high-ranked market leaders currently listed.

 

Economic reports showed improvement in the U.S. job market and a continuing rebound in manufacturing. Initial jobless claims declined 16,000 to 385,000 last week, in line with forecasts. Ongoing claims dropped to the lowest level since October 2008. A gauge of manufacturing in the mid-Atlantic region jumped in February to the highest point since January 1984. The survey from the Federal Reserve's Philadelphia branch showed new orders soared. Industrial production unexpectedly dropped in February, but the decline was due to the impact of milder weather on utilities. February consumer prices rose 0.5%, slightly above expectations.

Stocks were rebounding from three days of losses. Energy stocks gained as the price of oil rose and closed above $101 per barrel.  FedEx Corp (FDX +3.15%) rallied after its fourth quarter earnings forecast beat estimates.

Hopes are high that workers at a damaged nuclear plant in Japan will be able to connect a power line to restart damaged cooling systems. Meanwhile, G-7 finance chiefs will hold talks on financial markets and Japan's economy on Friday. The US dollar had dropped to an all-time low against the Japanese yen late Wednesday, reaching 76.53 yen to the dollar. Friday's session will also mark the quarterly options expirations day known as "quadruple witching" which typically results in higher volume totals on the exchanges. 

More damaging distributional action has the potential to lead to a much more substantial correction for the major averages (bad M criteria). During a correction investors should raise their cash levels and reduce stock market exposure. New buying efforts should be avoided until a new rally with a follow-through day (FTD) provides a fresh confirmation that buying demand from the institutional crowd is returning again.  Even after a FTD, marked by an expansion in volume and stocks hitting new highs with higher volume, buying efforts should only be cautiously and carefully made when all of the investment system's key criteria are met.

PICTURED: The S&P 600 Small-Cap Index recently violated its 50-day moving average (DMA) line.  The 410 level defines the next chart support area.

Energy Group Led Gainers

Energy-related shares were strong gainers as the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +2.80%) and Oil Services Index ($OSX +3.67%) led widespread gains.  The Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +1.40%) and Bank Index ($BKX +1.44%) also helped to underpin the major averages, however the financial groups' recent weakness has previously been noted for having raised concerns and hurt the near-term market outlook. The Healthcare Index ($HMO +1.01%) and Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +1.24%) provided modest gains for defensively positioned investors.  The Semiconductor Index ($SOX +1.34%) led the tech sector while the Internet Index ($IIX +0.32%) and Biotechnology Index ($BTK +0.48%) posted smaller gains, but the Networking Index ($NWX +0.03%) finished flat and the Retail Index ($RLX -0.15%) edged lower.

PICTURED: The Oil Services Index ($OSX +3.67%) was a standout gainer on Thursday after halting its slide at its 50-day moving average (DMA) line.

Pyramiding Technique May Have Minimized Exposure To Loss

The headline to the article linked to below will take you to the last article from this FSU section on a high-ranked leader in which we outlined a strategy is known as "pyramiding".  The pyramiding approach is extremely useful when used properly, as it lets the market action help to dictate how heavily you invest.  Disciplined investors who may have made an initial purchase of a half-position would not have added any additional shares before the latest pullback likely prompted them to sell per the -7% sell rule. Thus, the loss would have been minimized versus a scenario where one had immediately jumped into a full position. Keep in mind that at a future point, if the market (M criteria) and the stock show renewed strength and bullish characteristics, another opportunity to accumulate shares within the system's guidelines may eventually present itself. Meanwhile, losses must always be limited in order to avoid the possibility of more substantial erosion of your precious investment capital.

Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. (CTSH +$1.20 or +1.65% to $74.13) halted its slide today after 3 consecutive losses violated its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and its previously noted chart low ($73.25 on 2/23/11). Its color code was changed to green after the damaging technical violations. Any subsequent violation of its latest low of $70.53, which closely coincides with its earlier 1/28/11 low, would raise more serious concerns and trigger more worrisome technical sell signals.  Meanwhile, a prompt rebound above its short-term average would help its outlook greatly.

Its Relative Strength rank fell below the 80+ guideline and Accumulation/Distribution rating has slumped from a B- to a D (see red circles) and CTSH obviously didn't ever manage to rally beyond its "max buy" level following its last appearance in the Featured Stock Update (FSU) section on 2/08/11 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Minimal Volume Increase With Gain Just Above Pivot Point". At that time it had posted a gain with +40% above average volume while rallying from a short flat base above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line. That helped the high-ranked leader hailing from the strong Computer-tech Services group rise with the bare minimum volume required for a new buy signal as it closed the session above the pivot point cited in the 2/07/11 mid-day report (read here). As the 2/08/11 analysis stated - "In recent months we have seen articles in the paper refer to a +40% above average volume threshold, after primarily standing by a +50% above average volume threshold as the minimum for a proper technical buy signal for as long as this analyst can remember. Additionally, it has been emphasized that the investment system's biggest winners identified in past models commonly showed an undeniable surge in buying demand with volume spiking many-fold over their typical daily volume totals while they posted meaningful gains."

Y - Color code is changed to yellow with new pivot point cited based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents after consolidating for the past 5 weeks above support at its 50 DMA line. Volume-driven gains above its pivot point and a new rally with follow-through day from at least one of the major averages (M criteria) are necessary first in order to justify new (or add-on) buying efforts under the system's guidelines. Its recent chart low ($112.95 on 2/23/11) is the next important chart support to watch below its short-term average.

G - Down today with heavy volume after reporting earnings per share +60% on +53% revenues for the quarter ended January 31, 2011 versus the year ago period. Volume and volatility often increase near earnings news. It is again testing its 50 DMA line, a classic chart support level. As previously noted - "A close below a significant prior high close ($73.51 on 12/21/10) would completely negate its latest breakout, raising more serious concerns."

Y - Holding its ground today. It triggered a technical buy signal after noted in the 3/15/11 mid-day report - "Finding support at its 50 DMA line this week while still holding its ground stubbornly in a tight trading range since a considerable 'breakaway gap' on 1/12/11 for new highs. No resistance remains due to overhead supply. Color code is changed to yellow with pivot point cited based on its 52-week high plus 10 cents. Market conditions (M criteria) argue against new buying efforts until a new confirmed rally with follow-through day, meanwhile it is poised for a possible breakout. Recent quarterly comparisons showed solid sales and earnings increases versus the year earlier." See the FSU analysis for additional details and an annotated graph.

Y - Color code is changed to yellow after it has formed a sound new flat base pattern of sufficient length. Volume-driven gains above the new pivot point cited and a confirmed rally with follow-through day may eventually justify new (or add-on) buying efforts under the investment system guidelines. Important support to watch in the meanwhile is at its 50 DMA line and prior chart highs.

Down again today with heavier volume indicative of distributional pressure, slumping further below its 50 DMA line after violating the prior low previously noted ($30.80 on 1/10/11). Its Relative Strength rank (now 69) has fallen below the 80+ guideline required of proper buy candidates. It faces overhead supply up through $33 now after 3 months of trading at higher levels. Based on weak action it will be dropped from the Featured Stocks list tonight.

G - Perched at its all-time high today after overcoming early weakness on the prior session and finishing strong. Repeatedly noted - "No resistance remains due to overhead supply, but it is extended from a sound base pattern. Its 50 DMA line defines chart support to watch."

Y - Up today after testing prior highs near $35 and its 50 DMA line defining chart support to watch. Color code was changed to yellow with new pivot point cited after a new 5-week flat base pattern was identified. However, the negative market environment (M criteria) is an overriding concern for now arguing against new buying efforts until a rally with follow-through day occurs. See the latest FSU analysis for more details and a new annotated graph.

G - Down today, testing support at its 50 DMA line and matching its recent chart low ($22.87) earlier in the session. More damaging losses would raise concerns and trigger more worrisome technical sell signals.

G - Pulling back from its all-time high today after a spurt of volume-driven gains. Its recent 4-week consolidation was too short to be considered a sound new base pattern. Support to watch is at its 50 DMA line and recent chart lows near the $40 level.
