Yesterday's market action was neutral.

The Nasdaq Composite fell 0.88% in above average trade indicating institutional selling (Point A).

It may have been a day of professional selling, however it was constructive to see the US technology index find support at its 200 day moving average (Point B).

It was also good to see the S&P 600 finding support at its 200 day moving average (Point C).

Leading stocks action was negative.

My opinion remains the same - the recent 5 week correction (Point D) will turn out to be a temporary dip. It would not surprise me if the market found a bottom yesterday when it bullishly rebounded off its 200 day moving average.

However, if the market does fall further, there is comfort in knowing it has a thick band of support starting at its 200 day moving average which runs all the way down to 2942 (Point E).
