Weak bounce does not a bottom make

Buyers step up to the plate and recover some of yesterday's losses, but buying volume was down on Tuesday's for some indices - and there were some losses end-of-day to keep the gains in check. I wouldn't expect much from indices tomorrow. but slow, steady gains over coming days would be good.

The S&P did manage to register an accumulation day but technicals are net bearish.  If there is going to be a 'bear trap' it will need to do alot more.  Bears hold the advantage in the near term. 

The Russell 2000 ($IWM) finished with a 'spinning top', which is a more neutral outlook for the index.  With the undercut of the May lows in the S&P and Nasdaq, the likelihood for the same happening here is increased. Today's close also saw a lose in relative performance to the aforementioned indices.

We can't say a whole lot about today. The candlesticks were neutral and volume was on the light side.  This has the look of a weak bounce, which means to reverse this we have to see an increase in buying volume and ideally, wide range candlesticks.  Lets see what tomorrow brings.
