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.

Today's Comments: The overall market moved moderately lower sharply lower again on Monday in a broad based move that saw every index I track move lower on the day as well. The weakest sectors were the Oil Services, Oil & Gas, Natural Gas, Commodities, High Tech, Cyclicals, Banking, Transports, and Broker/Dealers. Oil was lower by $1.39 to $72.58 per barrel, and Gold was higher by $12.60 to $1,224.80 per ounce.

The overall market continues to look weak. I am looking for the Dow Jones Industrial Average to continue to move lower. I see the next level of downside support at 9,908.39. If the Dow fails to hold that level, then the next support level (and downside target) is 9,712.73 on a closing basis.
