Market Sentiment: Another False Dawn

After an initial promising kick in the number of stocks popping over their 200-day MAs, yesterday proved to be a kick in the teeth as market sentiment was scrambled. In effect, sentiment was downgraded from net positive to a trading range (but not outright negative).
