The dip-buyers did their thing for a third straight day but they weren't as enthusiastic. Fortunately for the bulls, AAPL kept us in positive territory. Although the bulls managed minor gains, breadth was slightly negative and we closed a little soft.
The market continues to hold up remarkably well, which may be due in part to so many folks looking for a pullback. Every time it looks like we may finally see a little downside momentum, the dip-buyers jump in and put the squeeze back on. Any bear that feels confident isn't paying attention to the action.
Even if you are bullish and don't expect a top to occur soon, it is a challenge to keep chasing higher and higher. Many bulls are rooting for some downside to get a better opportunity to put cash to work.
