Momentum Monday – What comes after a relief rally

The charts in this video are powered by MarketSmith

The best-performing stocks in the initial stage of a relief rally are typically the ones that were hit the worst during the correction. This is exactly what we saw last week – mortgage investment trusts, casinos, cruise ships, restaurants, homebuilders, airlines went up 30-100% in just a few days. Most started to fade as they approached their declining 20-day moving averages towards the end of the week. The next potential stage of this relief rally is a choppy range-bounce price action during which we will probably see a rotation into the stocks that held the best during the correction.

I continue to stay liquid but I also see good short-term trading opportunities on a daily basis.
