Last week's brutal stock market sell-off was rough on bullish investors. Technicians like to view the first five trading days of January as an early warning signal for the month. Traditionally January's performance has a decent chance at forecasting the yearly direction.
Right now the outlook is rather dim.
TRV and UPS both graduated from our watch list to our play list.
ALK, CLX, COST, CRM, DHI, EA, FB, HD, UPS, and V were all stopped out in last week's carnage on Wall Street.
OA, RHT, and SWHC have new stop losses.
Note - some of our positions have been adjusted for the cost of short-term protective puts.
