NASDAQ and Russell 2000 on Hold
The NASDAQ Composite and the Russell 2000 have signaled a
hold mid-week with the Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500 still long.
This was anticipated on August 21st as the indexes where not
climbing but trading in a range and the news around the market was not bullish.
The continued decline in oil should be pushing the averages
higher but it is not. The financials continue to weight on the market over a
year after the initial credit crunch began. Continue to monitor the indexes and
base your overall portfolio upon the trend in the main four.
