Here’s Why The Stock Market Is A Sloppy Mess

The bulls got caught looking higher this week…

While many investors have had high hopes about a successful retest of the February stock market lows, I have been exercising caution.

Though I believe that the broader bull market is still alive, I am concerned that this correction may need to see new lows before a durable rally to new highs can begin.

To sum things up, my indicators have been anything but certain about this retest. And it’s showing up in the price action – it’s been a sloppy mess out there!

Many technical indicators that I follow support this as well. And I’ve been sharing these thoughts on Twitter all week:  follow me at @MarkArbeter.

Below are several tweets and charts that I shared yesterday and today to illustrate this:
