Market Interpretation:

The general market indices have bounced back up near highs.  The trend could go in either direction, at this point.  Two weeks ago, the indices experienced a level of Distribution that would lead to a market top, in a typical market cycle.  However, last week the indices rose for 5 consecutive days, including support at the 50 Day MA’s for the S&P500 and the NASDAQ Composite.

If there is to be a resumed uptrend, at this point, we would expect to see more market accumulation.  April 23rd was interesting as such, because it had the potential to be a Follow-Through Day.  Yet, it lacked in magnitude and volume was fairly quiet.  The end of last week had signs of stalling.  Still, this close to highs, earnings or Fed decisions can steer the market in either direction.

Joel’s Take:

Regardless of the eventual market direction at this point, market analysis suggests a defensive stance.  If the trend resumes higher, there will be plenty of time to increase exposure.  However, the end of April, the Fed meeting, and earnings are certain to shape market action in coming sessions.
