Bounce Back Bullish Market Update and Scan for April 20

Mon, Apr 20, 1:51 PM ET, by Corey Rosenbloom

And we’re back! Back to the highs of Friday’s activity that is – and should we be surprised?

Price traded down to a key support level, formed positive divergences and power-rallied back higher this morning, almost as if nothing at all happened Friday.

This is a pattern of the current undeniable bull market that has repeated many times.

Let’s dive inside action and note key levels and the trending stocks of the bullish day:

Be sure to brush up on the “S&P 500 Range Planning” post for a broader perspective.

More divergences, more reversals off higher timeframe support or resistance levels.

Today’s session took the price back above 2,100 into the mini-range between 2,100 and 2,105.

The market remains super-bullish above 2,105 and cautious on a break back under 2,100.

Note the negative divergences that suggest a possible turn lower back under 2,100 but wait for the market to tip its hand before jumping back to the bearish side of this ongoing bull market.

Let’s see what our Breadth Chart reveals about current market strength (or weakness):

All sectors – except defensive Consumer Staples – are strongly positive today which underscores the bullish money flow surging back into the market.

On days like this, individual stock selection (perfection in scanning) is less important than just getting into the river of money flow into the market – find a stock in a strong sector and manage risk along the way. Don’t waste time finding the perfect stock on days like this.

We have potential bullish trend continuation plays in the following stocks from our scan:

Hasbro (HAS), Kansas City (KSU), CSX, and CH Robinson (CHRW)

If you’re must be a bear on a bullish day, you can try these bearish/weak names:

Iconix (ICON), Royal Caribbean (RCL), Pepco (POM), and Kite Pharma (KITE)
