In looking at the charts from Friday’s market activity I noticed three (3) things that really stood out. The first thing I noticed is that a majority of the sector indices I looked at had negative chart patterns. This is generally a precursor for a broader market pullback. The second thing I noticed was very few of the stocks setting new yearly highs had average daily trading volume above 1 million shares. To me, this indicates that the larger companies are not participating as much in the recent market rally. The third thing I noticed was the majority of the stocks with heavy volume looked to be moving lower. This is generally a bearish trading signal.
