It’s easy to be bullish in this market environment. Buying pullbacks is certainly the thought on everyone’s mind. That being said, the bears do have a valid argument, that being the widening triangle forming on the top-line figures. This coming week is heavy on the economic news so stay on your toes and remember rule #1 PRESERVE YOUR CAPITAL!

We are looking for a break of the trend line in the top-line figures to the upside, but are hedged for a pullback.
