Comment: As expected, the market took a hit last week, but the selloff lasted only an hour before the computer algos entered the market with buy orders, and the market went higher. Overnight, geopolitical concerns set the S&P futures back a little but it recovered. Bottom line: The bullish algos are in control. One day the uptrend will change to a downtrend and the algos will change strategies, but until that day arrives, be cautious and conservative with your trades.
