It Won't Always Be This Easy

The consolidation period under 1700 continued Friday. Once again, the intraday sell off was met with more buying the dips leading to a positive close.

My sense is that the consolidation will not be over until it's NOT SO EASY.

Meaning a down day is met with NO buying. And 1-2 more painful days ensue to have people question if there is real bearish intent in the market... AND THEN stocks rise back.

It is in those more painful, almost panic stricken moments, I will use my stash of cash to nab more Zacks #1s for the ride higher. I recommend you do the same.

Investors marvel that it's "like a license to print money." "No benchmark stands a chance!" Why wait another day?
