 Market Interpretation:

Friday’s option expiration catalyzed a Distribution Day.  All indications are for a lower open this morning.  Another short-term correction, like the one at the end of February might be constructive, at this point.  Still, the Cyprus bank levy, which is apparently the catalyst for the global sell-off, would seem to be somewhat small, even if it is extreme.

Observing leading stocks when the market is under Distribution is a powerful way to observe which leaders remain highly in demand.  In periods of potential trend change, rules are of the utmost importance.

Joel’s Take:

In the first quarter, many stocks have offered opportunity for solid profits.  Financials, consumer technology, medical, construction, and commodity stocks have all contributed to market leadership.  If the current uptrend continues, then the action that we are seeing right now could manifest as a sector rotation out of some leading groups into new ones.
