On Tuesday, the NASDAQ worked its way
lower in early trading. However, it soon found its low and began to rally. This
buying accelerated late in the day.Â This action breaks it out to new 5-year
Ditto for the Ps. This action has it clearing
The sectors action was very positive.
The Semis, which had been stuck in a range, broke

Software, which has generally lost momentum as of
late, broke out nicely to 5-year highs.
Retail, which has been questionable lately,
appears to be attempting to break out of its trading range.

Wednesday’s With Dave
It’s that time again. On Wednesday, 11/16/06, at 11:00 AM EST, I will be hosting my weekly interactive lesson. This
week, in addition to current market and sector conditions, I plan discussing the
importance of sticking with your game plan and following your rules. After that, I will take your questions on individual issues or trading in general. As usual, admission is free (and I give money back guarantees if not completely satisfied!). However, the space is limited by the software. Email me if you need instructions on how to join (the same each week) or if you would like the archives for the prior year (covering topics such as money & position management, scanning, picking the best setups, sectors, longer-term trend following and a bunch of other stuff).
Best of luck with your trading on Wednesday!Â
P.S. Reminder: Protective stops on every trade!
