Battle Royale: Bulls vs. Bears

Tuesday was another day when most investment news outlets seemed out of sync with each other. That is because there is no clear cause and effect that would lead to the 1% decline of US stocks.

I am not saying they won't try and make some kind of explanation... like pinning it on QE or the Japanese. However, how is that story truly different than the end of last week when stocks rallied over 2% in 2 sessions???

What does it all mean Reity?

Forgive me for repeating myself, but welcome to the range bound market. That is because stocks have already rallied mightily to a point where bullish and bearish interests are balanced. Now they will wrestle for supremacy.

As we get lower in the range towards 1600, Bulls will take the upper hand. Then as we climb towards the highs at 1687, then the Bears will assume control.

In the end, I expect the bulls to win out as there is no reason to assume the 4 year bull rally is over yet. Trade accordingly.
