Seasonal Rally Ahead

Seasonal Rally Ahead

Mid-sized and smaller stocks are struggling to keep pace with their larger brethren. They are not losing much ground, but they are not leading either; broad-market leadership is what we’d like to see if the rally is to be sustained.

I believe that we have seen the traditional fall stock market lows in the form of a W bottom and are setting the stage for a seasonal rally into next year. As a matter of tactics, we are looking to buy the next pullback, an opportunity that may come this week.
