Below is a summary of of the video. Please feel free to comment or hit us up with any questions:

The U.S. equity markets bounced back today after several sessions of selling. Many of the U.S. stock indices, including the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA: SPY) and Nasdaq (NASDAQ: QQQ) continue to trade above rising 30 day moving averages and all four major U.S. equity indices have a bullish intermediate posture according to the Market Forecast indicator.

–  Long term moving averages continue to support a bullish thesis

–  The U.S. Dollar remains strong and continues to pressure commodities and foreign stocks

–  Consumer Discretionary was the leading sector today and remains one of the most bullish sectors from an intermediate term perspective

–  Retail stocks within the Discretionary space were today’s big winners after traders cheered Tapestry’s (TPR) earnings

–  The retail industry ETF (XRT) closed at a new yearly high

–  The trade application example highlighted in today’s video featured a moderately bullish trade on Tractor Supply (TSCO) as it continues to drift higher
