Last week looks a lot like the week before. The small cap Russell 2000 index and the Dow Jones Transportation index continue to hit new all-time highs. The S&P 500 index extended its gains to seven weeks in a row. Yet bullish momentum in equities is fading fast. Leadership is also narrowing. The VIX is trading near multi-year lows. Stocks are overbought and due for a correction.
Readers will want to double check their stop loss placement and make adjustments based on your personal risk tolerance.
