Technical Market Action The market continuos to back fill and, in the .rriter's is in the process of forming a bas, or accumulati.on aren prior to a !'uly -.,hat rill retrrce one-third to two-thirds of the decline frOl the bull market hlghs. This process may take some further timc bafore emelging out of the posfible base formation on the tipddc. The background u5ulllly found in nccumulatior, periods is pn'sent today, namely, nervousness and general bearishness, lOll volume and lck of )Jublie interest. In the process, some further time may be consumed tmd prices may work r. little lower. However, continuod backing and filling within the con1'ins; of thG nccumulation increc.ses ,.he rally possibili ttl'S.

Even if tile stock declines i.o the 32 or 31 arce., the base vould still suggest a rally to 39-41 if 3( is reached.
