  • Notable risk-off day for equities. Low-float momentum stocks are starting to crater, while the distribution days in the indexes (especially the small cap $IWM), are piling up. It is not the perfect market environment to chase breakouts in late stage bases or open long-term positions. It is more of a “hit-and-run” market, which requires to be especially nimble.
  • The silver lining of red market days is that they highlight stocks with organic demand: $SPSC  and $ACHC cleared new 52-week highs; $MELI made another step towards the $100 roll; $RUTH and $OPEN continue to consolidate above their rising 20dma.
