Market Outlook entering the Week of March 8th = Uptrend @ Risk

With the exception of the NASDAQ, all the major stock market averages ended the week below their 20-day moving averages.

U.S. equities struggled to increase in price this week, and high-volume selling dominated Friday’s trading session for the second week in a row. Not the market action investors want to see during an uptrend. Adding a sell signal from the 20 DMA tells us that it’s time to be cautious with new and/or additional stock buys.
Intermediate-term Elliott Wave Analysis support and resistance levels fell slightly, reflecting the past week’s weakness:
