TABELL'S MARKET LETTER The technical action of the past week has been mosDt igbeyn4c-41o41uraging. The decline of Monday and Tuesday brought both the short term and intermediate term gauges to a point that has corrected the overbought condition first registered in late August. On Wednesday, the short term gauge gave a buy signal. On Friday, the intermediate term gauge was very close to signalling a buy indication and confirming the shorter term gauge. The longer term gauge was strengthened by the fact that the industrial average, at the week's low of 177.63, had made a near testing of the two hundred day moving average at 175.25. The rails also are showing better action. At Friday's high of 47.93, the rail average fractionally bettered the August 10th high of 47.88. The rail average, however, is still considerably below the January high of 54.93 and the larch high of 49.86'. Ability of the market to give further constructive signals would not necessarily indicate that the market is on the verge of another important upmove of equal scope to the June-August rise. The inference to be drawn from the recent favorable action is that the market appears to be much less vulnerable to a severe decline than at any time within the recent past. Some more time may be required for some individual issues, to complete their potentially bullish formations, but there are many individual issues that have built up sufficiently constructive patterns to indicate a further rise with only normal corrective reactions. Such issues will be added to our list in followin6 letters and wires. I would switch out of the following issues in our recommended list Last Price..
