Position Statement: In our Prime Recommendation Letter we attempt to identify the recommendation with the highest probability of moving higher.  We recommend that stop orders be placed at the time of purchase,  and once the position has moved profitable we recommend a stop be placed a minimum of $0.375 above the purchase price and moved higher as the position moves higher.

There was strength in the Broker/Dealers, Banking, Natural Gas, Commodities, Cyclicals, Oil & Gas, Disk Drive Manufacturers, Networking, Transports, High Tech, Insurance, Pharmaceuticals, and Consumer indices. There was weakness in the Airlines, Biotech, Healthcare Providers, and Retailers. There was strength in bonds as interest rates moved slightly lower.
