A month ago only 3 of the 21 stocks we follow was trading over its 50 day moving average, today 16 of 21 are trading above their 50 day moving average. In addition a month ago NONE of our stock had positive momentum, now 20 of our 21 stocks have positive momentum. It looks like the market is really starting to discount the slower growth projected for 2009 and looking ahead to a strong 2010 and 2011."
