This week saw a huge shakeout in the leadership stocks with numerous tech and healthcare stocks dropping up to -20% in a just a few days from their highs. However, there is a chance that it was just a shakeout by the markets in order to let the larger players load up on the stronger stocks at a lower price. But this opinion now needs confirmation, as although some traders jumped back in immediately on the assumption of a shakeout. The price action of many stocks that got hit failed to recover with much strength, and still closed the week significantly lower than the previous week, even though they recovered half or more of the drop.

So there's a lot of leading stocks with weekly bars that have long tails. Which is a reversal pattern that shows the stock found support. But this will now need confirmation, by price making a move above last weeks high, and then a daily close above it, which should be accompanied by stronger volume.

The market breadth recovered from the weakness that I highlighted a few weeks back with the shakeout this week, and so is back on mostly short term bullish signals, with the longer term data continuing to improve
