Below the Surface

On the surface stocks were basically breakeven on Monday. So it appears that nothing happened.

Below the surface was turmoil. Massive winners on one side. Massive losers on the other.

What does it mean?

Monday was a classic rotation day. Profits taken in one group are plowed back into another. The trick is that tomorrow a different group may take the beating while others are glorified. What usually emerges after a rotation period is that the market will spring forward in the same direction it was already headed.

In this case it means that we will likely take one more rush higher. I suspect that will be up to 1700 and then a consolidation period will emerge as we trade in a range of 1600 to 1700.

The market has to rest sometime. I sense there is one more push higher before that happens.
