Good Feelings Come to an End

The good feelings over the past week generated by a big bounce in banks came to an abrupt end today. A lot of folks wanted to believe that the huge move in banks were signaling that things had gotten too negative and it was safe to jump back in. While things might have gotten too negative, the ensuing bounce was too euphoric, and that invited the profit-taking we saw today.

Outside of financials, it continues to be a sea of pain in the energy- and commodity-related stocks. However, just like the financials a week or so ago, thing may be getting too negative out there, and conditions are getting ripe for some sort of oversold bounce. We just need a good catalyst like the banks had when a few earnings reports were better than expected.

If you are looking for upside action, that is your best chance in the near term because almost every other major sector looks terrible. I see absolutely no upside leadership right now, and the major indices are setting up for possible retests of recent lows.

I'd really like to be more bullish, and I'm hopeful we'll get a good upside trade in energy- and commodity-related stocks, but the state of leadership in this market is abysmal, and that is going to take some time to correct.

Have a good evening. I'll see you tomorrow.

There is very little working right now, outside of extremely short-term trades.

A failed bounce attempt once again puts the sector on alert as the race lower continues.

I see little to recommend on the long side.
