Tread Lightly

Today was active at the open, and we were able to jump on signals in several stocks. JNJ, PFE, TEVA, CRON, CGC, and others moved sharply higher, BUT they also were difficult to manage due to relatively severe pullbacks. Some stocks, such as CRON, appeared to be ready to trend upwards all day, but suffered very sharp selloffs towards the middle of the session. As with last week, we are dealing with difficult conditions that are yielding smaller gains than would be typical, so we are keeping our risk small as a result. Here’s an overview of the session.
