July 18, 2000After a few days off, I expected to come back and see something different in the charts and statistics. After not checking the market for three trading days, it doesn't look much different than it did when I left it last Thursday morning. It needed a rest then; now it looks like it needs a good night's sleep. Sure the S&P is now almost 20 points higher, but the indicator that contributed to its improvement and recent rally, the breadth of the market, managed to gain a measly 47 issues during that same period. That's not what makes the foundation for further rallying on the NYSE.
