    True life is lived when tiny changes occur.
    -- Count Leo Tolstoy

    The market has been undergoing some significant changes in the last few days, once again stirring up hopes that the "worst is over" rally is back on. The bullish case at this point is that oil has topped out and the dollar has bottomed. The Fed is apparently now in the ideal situation of having an economy that is just slow enough to keep inflation in check but is strong enough where no further rate cuts are needed.

    In addition, the financial sector has bottomed, and we now are undergoing a transition to new leadership from cyclical growth groups like steel and oil and into technology, retail and biotech.

    These changes are causing some real chaos in sector leadership but have the big-picture bulls feeling quite excited. The key here is that oil does top and the dollar does find support. If those conditions do not persist, then the bullish case becomes much more problematic.

    Good earnings from Dell (DELL) and Marvell (MRVL) last night are helping the argument for technology as new leadership, but we already have oils bouncing back this morning, and I don't believe that the group is going to go away without a significant fight.

    What has really made the market tricky recent are the sharp swings in leading sectors. Solar energy is a particularly good example. On Wednesday, the group was up strongly as oil prices continued to rise. Yesterday the group was hit hard on a downgrade by Merrill Lynch, a sharp drop in crude and rumors that German subsidies would be cut. This morning the group is up sharply again as news hits that Germany is supporting solar energy after all.

    Trying to trade that sort of action in a coherent fashion is nearly impossible, and it isn't just solar energy that has been jerked around recently. Steel, mining, oil, fertilizers and all the other groups that have outperformed the market lately are undergoing similar volatility, which is not seen if you just look at the major indices.

    The key today will be to see if the rotation out of cyclicals and oil and into technology and retail can continue. There is good news in the technology sector to support it, but the indices are now running into technical overhead, and end-of-the-month window-dressing pressures will start to ease today.

    Like many other traders, I've been having a very difficult time lately navigating the sector swings and have sold down positions significantly. My game plan is to simply wait until I see some clearly trends that last longer than a day. Right now we are in a state of flux, and it's too easy to be whipsawed if you are overly aggressive.

    We have a positive open on the way, but oil and gold are bouncing, which is going to determine which way this market goes.
