The Dow Industrial Average has regained more than the normal one-third to two-thirds retrace- ment of the previous decline. It would seem that the next correction should hold above the lows of late August. However, as reiterated so many times before, the action of individual issues will be quite diverse. I visualize a Wide trading area over the near future with selective strength in the secondary issues and in the more specu lative stocks, and a further resting period for most of the higher grade ,share — … –….o; ,- ,,……… …–.-. Periods of market weakness should be used to add to holdings in recommended issues. Recent action tends toward the conclusion that the 335-330 area will be a strong support zone.
