An example from today

Here is what I was seeing today in the S&P vs 6 stocks that I follow:

The S&P gaps down on the open, trades to a bottom at 8AM PDT, then comes a complex test of that same level that bottoms out at 10:30AM, and then drifts upward.

I am looking at an E&P (APA), an engine manufacturer (CMI), medical labs/testing (LH), consumer finance (V), branded apparel mfg (VFC), and appliance (WHR) company.

There are points of correlation. Four of the six end up drifting higher with the market towards the end of the day - but two do not. The bottoms of each are pretty close to the 8AM & 10:30AM bottom of the market, but I see price action set ups that would have worked independent of what the market was doing at the time.

I have been hurt at times where I have three longs on in three names; something negative happens in the market; and I get three losing trades in short order. I have also had the opposite. I try not to get take similar set ups across names. If I miss read one, I may misread the others. But if one name is trending down and another bumping off support, the it is tough for the market to work both trades against me.
