However it seems fairly obvious that there are powers at work here pushing the market up with volume to back them up. After reviewing hundreds of stocks over the last few hours there are also many stocks that look decidedly bullish.

Keep in mind all it takes is for the right words to be said from the right politician or the wrong headlines adversely to send the market sharply in either direction so this makes us feel extra cautious and to search for trades where there is terrific risk reward and as many technical factors supporting the trade as possible.
So as we all know. Money is usually not made in the market by trading what you feel but what you see. Right now I see a lot of potential longs versus shorts. However we will still be looking at tight risk discipline on any trades we look at while the Index sits on this precarious perch.
Hub Group(NASDAQ:HUBG) appears to be trading right into its 200 day Moving average resistance at the $33.00 mark. After a significant rally over the last couple of weeks HUBG’s steam seems to of slowed today with only 127,408 volume reported so far today as compared to 501,500 yesterday. This could indicate a potential pull back to lower levels and the short players may be eyeing this up. If however HUBG was able to break the 33.00 resistance area it could actually be a candidate for playing out the next leg of an inverse Head and Shoulders pattern which many technical traders would suggest could see it rallying towards the 36.50 area.

Savient Pharmaceuticals INC(NASDAQ:SVNT) is also likely to be under the microscope for many traders after its impressive rally to a high of $2.95 on September 24th , 2012 saw it to mostly come apart closing at 1.15 yesterday. SVNT now appears to be stuck in a tight trading range between 1.10 and 1.20 and could be an interesting trade from a technical basis if it were to be able to break the 1.20 resistance with some conviction. Watching for a break on volume also can be useful to confirm potential opportunities such as this.
