Russia-Ukraine continue to dominate and that has stocks tumbling again today but Home Depot Stock (HD) is definitely not helping. Home Depot Stock (HD) is tumbling over $30 today despite excellent earnings and a 15% dividend hike. Obviously investors just wanted an excuse to sell. This certainly is working out well for my trade setup on Friday ahead of those earnings. I think the selling is overdone and plan to place a trade. Members have access to that trade.

Presidents Day Sale now into its final two days

Don’t forget, the discounted membership prices for both new members and existing members looking to renew, end tomorrow at midnight, eastern standard time. I hope investors will take advantage of the discounts.

Let’s look at the stats as markets head out of the lunch hour..

New York Stats:

Volume is average at 2.4 billion shares traded.

New 52 week lows are at 240 while new highs are just 29. This is 9:1 to the downside. This is again very bearish.

New 52 week lows are 595 which is high. New highs are 30. This is 20:1 to the downside and very bearish.

TSX Composite Index – Canadian Stock Market Outlook

For those who follow the smaller Canadian Market, the TSX is down 158 points. The TSX is back below 21,000. This has been a yo-yo level for the index as the TSX can’t get enough buyers to keep the index above 21,000. This also advises investors to be careful as above 21,000 much of the market is overvalued or certainly fully valued.
Volume is above average at 238 million shares traded.  Of volume 66% is to the downside.
Only 17% of all stocks are rising. Even Canadian banks are lower today. There are 12 new 52 week highs and 95 new 52 week lows which is quite bearish considering the index has held up well over the past several weeks.
The outlook is negative for the afternoon. The TSX will close lower. I am focused on the weakness in Canadian banks and looking for some Put Selling opportunities.
