Stability Does NOT Mean A Rally
The markets are showing signs of stabilizing. For the third day, stocks moved in a much narrower range and internals showed signs of improvement:
1) New lows drop dramatically
2) VIX decline continues
3) Libor rates down 15 days in row
4) elections ending
What we need to see now:
--consistent decline in selling pressure
--more real buying interest
--more stability in credit--no good to have lower LIBOR if no one is lending!
Stability does not mean a rally—even bulls expect a trading range. For example, consumer discretionary, materials and energy were the biggest gainers last week, but traders did some old-fashioned profit taking today as those groups were among the biggest decliners.
