1.Advance-Decline Line Is Breaking Out
By Ron Insana
3:57 p.m. EDT The cumulative NYSE advance-decline line is breaking out. While I'd like to see a dramatic uptick in the number of individual stocks making new 52-week highs, the new high in this closely followed breadth indicator is extremely important. If coupled with continued in advances in the Dow transports, a break through the upper Bollinger band and continued leadership from financials and technology, we can stop worrying about whether this is a "real bull market" or just a bear market bounce.
