The market has oscillated like a 60s go-go dancer this morning, only now settling into a tighter coil formation. Indeed, the early morning pop on the BAC TARP pay-down faded fast on less than stellar retail sales and ISM Services reports. In fact, all of the leading sectors that I follow are down, save the Semiconductors. However, internals remain flat to slightly positive, and with a higher-high and higher-low put in thus far, I have to categorize this as consolidation over resistance for now in spite of the many building momentum divergences.
