BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- As Monday's trading kicks off this morning, investors should be expecting a fairly muted week for Mr. Market. We've been on the receiving end of "investor overload" for the last several months, so a quiet week isn't necessarily a bad thing -- especially since the market is still in "correction mode" this week.
If there's a single word that best describes the rally we've been in since the start of June, it's "orderly." Stocks have bounced upward in a well-defined channel for those last three months, giving investors and traders a predictable range that the S&P 500 is likely to stay stuck in.
Now the S&P is cooling off a bit from the top of the channel, but not for long.
