The NYSE Advance/Decline (A/D) line, which tracks the cumulative reading of net advancing stocks minus declining stocks, closed at further new highs Friday, confirming the action in the major averages. The A/D line broke out to the upside on September 2 and has made a series of new highs over the past two months (see arrows). It is well above its uptrend. On a short-term basis, I would not be surprised to see a pullback as short covering likely contributed to Thursday’s upward surge, but a correction should be a buying opportunity.
