July 29 MTI

VECTORVEST DOES NOT ADVOCATE BUYING STOCKS AT THIS TIME. Yesterday the MTI fell briefly to .59 before rallying to close at .61. Historically when VectorVest is near 0.60 and especially if it falls below 0.60, it signals we are near a market bottom. It’s often the safest time to buy when the market rises from that bottom and we get either a Primary Wave/Up or a Green Light in the price column for more confirmation. However, despite our 2-day rally, we still do not have a PW/Up. VectorVest does not advocate buying any stocks at this time. We could get a PW/Up tomorrow if the price of the VVC/CA rises just 0.025 cents.  However, Tuesday is the earliest we can get a green light in the price column since the color guard price cannot turn green if there was a red five days earlier. Finally, notice in the above graph, resistance as shown by the upper trendline is not far above. If we can break through that level we have more chance of a longer, more sustained rally.

The table below shows the trends of our VectorVest at a Glance market information. Notice the number of Buy Rated stocks, while increasing the last two days, is still low that last week, 136 to 165.
