Sorry, please try again

I am NOT at all  impressed with today’s bounce. Even though I mentioned yesterday I was making selective buys, I suspect today’s rally does not mean the end of the downward action.

As of 3:00 pm, internals are only fair, with the OTC advance/decline at a mere 16/14, and up/down volume barely over 2 to 1. Over at the NYSE, A/D is 17/15. while the up/down volume is even less impressive at 7 to 5.

With an hour to go, the volume is completely unimpressive — under Billion shares (814m) on the Nazz and barely 1.23 on the NYSE.

What would make me more impressed with today’s bounce? Broader participation, a significant volume thrust, and much much stronger volume.

Even if we do not see a late day sell-off, my takeway is that today’s move is simply not all that significant . . .
