BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Last week wasn't exactly a good week to be a stock investor. The S&P 500 shed 4.3% between Monday's open and Friday's close, erasing all but 3% of the gains that Mr. Market had earned year-to-date. But if the week was bad, this month has been worse.The Dow Jones Industrial Average, for instance, has lost ground in 12 of the last 13 trading sessions. That's the worst 13-session losing streak for the index since back in 1974. But with this morning's price action looking decidedly bullish, chances are the big indices are going to be earning back some of those lost points in today's session after being oversold for so long. That should provide an opportunity for buyers in the broad market right now.
