Here’s a chart for my shorter-term trading friends:


The breadth indicator that I follow just gave us a buy sign – this indicator is for a week or two ahead, so its basically saying that through Thanksgiving we should see a net positive change to the market. It is based upon the moving averages of the Advance/Decline line (the net of stocks moving up over moving down) so gives a feel for what should be happening with individual stocks as opposed to the market averages.

No indicator is perfect, but this one has a pretty good track record.

Don’t rock the boat, baby, the trend seems to have at least a couple more weeks left in it.
