Indices Gained Ground But Ended Off Highs of Session

The major averages gained ground on Tuesday but finished off their best levels of the day. The volume totals were reported higher than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by an 8-7 margin on the NYSE and by nearly a 3-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 31 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up from a total of 15 stocks on the prior session. The list of stocks hitting new 52-week lows outnumbered new 52-week highs on the NYSE while new highs again outnumbered new lows on the Nasdaq exchange. There were gains for 15 of the 16 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. The market (M criteria) is technically still in a "correction", and historic studies suggest that no new buying efforts should be made during market corrections. An ideal turning point to watch for would be a solid follow-through day of gains greater than +1.5% from at least one of the 3 major averages with higher volume totals and an expansion in leadership (new 52-week highs).

   

The major averages initially rallied thanks to better-than-expected economic data. The ISM manufacturing index unexpectedly increased further above a two-year high and construction spending rose to the highest level since June 2009. However, the early advance faded as fears of an imminent attack on Syria resurfaced after President Obama received support for military action from the top two Republicans in the House.

Overall, eight of the 10 S&P 500 sectors gained ground. Financials and Consumer Discretionary paced the advance, led by Citigroup Inc's (C +2.15%) gain Amazon.com Inc (AMZN +2.78%). Meanwhile, the Technology sector eked out minor gains despite Microsoft Corp's (MSFT -4.55%) big loss following the announcement it will buy Nokia Inc's (NOK +31.28%) handset business. Telecommunications lagged behind as Verizon Communications Inc (VZ -2.8%) fell after agreeing to acquire Vodafone's (VOD -1/05%) stake in their Verizon Wireless joint venture. 

In fixed-income, Treasury prices dropped. The 10-year note fell 20/32 to yield 2.86% and the 30-year bond lost over a full point and a half to yield 3.79%.

The Dow and S&P remain below their respective 50-day moving average lines, and rebounds above those short term averages would be another encouraging sign to watch for before one can truly consider those indices in "healthy" shape chart-wise.

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Industrial Average posted a small gain on Day 4 of its rally attempt. Losses must not undercut the indices' Day 1 lows, which would technically end the brief rally attempt and signal that the correction was worsening, The outlook is somewhat encouraging. It and the 3 major averages should be trading above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line. It is important to watch for a proper follow-through day (FTD) to signal convincingly that a solid rally is at hand before new buying efforts in stocks may be justified under the fact-based system. Patience and discipline remain paramount.

Consolidating Above Prior Highs and 50-Day Moving Average

Biotauto Hldgs Ltd Ads (BITA +$0.23 +1.68% to $13.95) is consolidating above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and prior highs. Disciplined investors always limit losses if any stock falls more than -7-8% from their purchase price. BITA was last shown in this FSU section on 8/07/13 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Found Prompt Support After Undercutting 50-Day Average", after highlighted in yellow with pivot point based on its 5/08/13 high plus 10 cents in the earlier mid-day report (read here).

This China-based Internet-Content firm reported Second Quarter 2013 financial results +109% on +41% sales revenues. Its quarterly and annual earnings (C and A criteria) history has been strong. It spiked to new highs with above average volume gains clearing its choppy 13-week base pattern on 8/08 and 8/09. The volume-driven gains triggered a technical buy signal and it quickly got extended.

Its small supply (S criteria) of only 13.9 million shares in the public float can contribute to great volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling. There are 25 top-rated mutual funds that currently own an interest in the company, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.6 is an unbiased indication that its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.
