Current Market Update

From Cabot Top Ten Trader

We’re a bit more encouraged than we were a week ago and, if you had a decent cash position, we think putting some of that to work makes sense. When you combine the positive vibes from the overall market (trends are up, very few stocks hitting new lows, etc.) and improved tenor from leading stocks (growth or cyclical), there’s no doubt the evidence has taken a step in the right direction.

That said, we’d still go relatively slow for now—investor sentiment has gotten a bit bubbly (which often coincides with further shakeouts), and let’s not forget that the Nasdaq (which has been the leading index all year) has still yet to exceed its Labor Day high. That’s not bearish, but the point is there are still a lot of crosscurrents out there, so pick your spots carefully and remain flexible.
