- New Trades -


Editor's Note:

(August 11, 2013)

No new trades tonight.

I remain cautiously bullish on the market. The larger trend is clearly higher. Yet short-term the market is starting to see a little profit taking. Seasonally we're inside the worst two months of the year (August & September). Q2 earnings season is over. Investors are still worried about the Fed tapering their QE program too early. Add it all together and stocks could be lacking a catalyst to move higher. Now consider that we're still close to all-time highs and it might be time for a pullback.

We are adding two new candidates to our watch list tonight (DD, FLR).
