Broad Market Weakens

by Michael Cintolo on September 22, 2014

This is an excerpt from Cabot Top Ten Trader, which features the best trades to make every week.  Designed for experienced investors who want even more great growth stock ideas, this advisory recommends the best 10 stocks each month for short-term investment by aggressive investors.

The major indexes continue to whip around, with last Monday’s dip followed by a strong recovery, and now a renewed drop. By our measures, the intermediate-term uptrend is on the fence, and it’s clear that large chunks of the broad market are falling apart (gold, silver and oil shares are especially weak). And, at the very least, it’s obvious the environment remains very choppy and making big money is difficult.  

Of course, we’ve seen repeated shakeouts followed by recoveries, but the evidence tells us to pull in our horns; we’re shifting the Market Monitor back toward neutral while we wait for the buyers to return.

When doing buying, the key is to focus on what’s working and this week’s list has a good batch to consider. Our Top Pick is a steady grower in the medical testing field that is just getting going after a couple of big corrections during the past year.
