By Michael Gable 

We maintain our negative bias to the overall market and believe that the S&P500 Index needs to head lower before we see the type of bounce that is worth trading.

Although it is not worth buying anything right now, it is definitely time to make a short-list of the potential buying opportunities. Generally speaking, a stock that holds up well despite the broader market weakness is a stock that produces the best results when the market recovers.

In today's charting section we have a stock that appears to be holding up very well and may provide some very good upside at the next bear market rally, being ((CAR)).

The chart for CAR is a bit messy, but some recent price movements have stood out. Last Friday, we saw CAR put in a higher low before rallying very strongly off that low and closing at the highs of the day (circled).

This is known as a bullish reversal. Volume was also very large on that day. It is too early to treat that as a buy signal, but it is a sign that we might see some good buying support step in down here.

Ideally, CAR should go on to build a base now and we don't want to see it trade under $18 anymore. If it can do that for a few weeks or so and then push above major resistance at $20, then we would be comfortable that it is on the way back up. It is early days though, so CAR is one to keep an eye on for now.
