Growth company Google resumed market leadership after the last substantial market
correction way back in 2011. A stock with a decent beta, it corrected sharply earlier this year
along with about 60% of the total market. GOOGL Daily Note the test of the 200 day m/a in
early May. Lots of technicians watched that action with baited breath. Note as well the action
of the intermediate term MACD. About 60% of the total market fell into a similar MACD
pattern including the fact that probably less than 50% of the market has experienced sufficient
price momentum to cross the zero line on the way up. You will note that Google like most stocks
has yet to cross over into positive territory on MACD. That tells you that despite the rally in the
SPX, there is still above average risk in the market.
