    Even though the indices acted fairly well yesterday there were some signs of weakness under the surface. Most notable was the poor breadth and relative weakness of small-caps. It wasn't anything terrible profound or intense and could be attributed to a hangover following the close of the first quarter.

    Nonetheless, it was a little troubling and it is a good time to be a bit tougher with the stocks we are holding.

    To be tough with stocks is to demand exceptionally good behavior. If they don't do what they should, we are hard-nosed and simply cut them. You can't be forgiving of poor performance in a market that is as challenging as this one.

    That not only pertains to the stocks you are holding but those that you are considering buying. When things are strong the market will often bail you out of marginal stock picks. You don't have to be as selective or demanding to make money. In a bull market that is showing signs of age like this one, we have to raise the bar and only hire the best stocks to work for us. That means solid charts and decent numbers to back them up.

    Although I believe that now is the time to tighten up stops and be more selective, I'm not turning negative on the market. It still has not done anything to crack the uptrend, so I'm still giving it the benefit of the doubt and am not anticipating an end to the rally. On the other hand that doesn't mean that we shouldn't tighten up defense and be tough with our stocks.
