Nov 16 Bizarro World Market Update and Weird Stock Scan

Nov 16, 2015: 3:50 PM CST

With horrific terrorist attacks in Paris and beyond, and news of Japan officially slipping into recession, naturally stocks would be bullish and rise in a powerful trend day higher.

Of course they would!  How logical!  How simple!  Get rich by doing the opposite of what you think should happen.

In our bizarro world, that’s exactly what happened and the chart strongly suggested this bullish outcome.

Let’s update our levels for the S&P 500 Index and note the big trending stocks today:

In-depth analysis is always provided to members of the Premium Daily Reports – I hope you’ll join and benefit.

We were bullish in Friday’s member report based on short-term positive divergences into a key support target.

Here are today’s strongest trending (intraday) names – candidates for pro-trend continuation:

Flir Systems (FLIR), L3 Com (LLL), Raytheon (RTN), and Northrop Grumman (NOC).

Bearish downtrending candidates include the following stocks from our “weakness” scan:

Priceline (PCLN), Starwood Hotels (HOT), Urban Outfitters (URBN), and Hilton (HLT)
