There's one going on now.

The hurricanes are interrupting the decline of some very important business cycles.

Prices have traded higher in recent days but remain, so far, below the declining 50-day moving average line.

Rallies led by the financials and backed by the transports are rallies that have genuine staying power.

Take today's news about Norfolk Southern (NSC) . The quarter really was terrific, with solid cargo growth all the way down the line. But when the Q&A came on the all-important conference call, it was all rather long-knived. Instead of talking about the excellent intermodal growth and the strength of coal and so many other cargos Norfolk Southern shipped, the focus was all on auto and how bad auto will be. When we talked about auto last night with Magna (MGA)  , the biggest auto parts and assembling company in the world, we had to deal with GM (GM)  CEO Mary Barra's comments about a pretty drastic decline in auto shipments. Ford's F not giving you all that much hope today for a turnaround, either. I continue to believe that, despite some optimism about the charts of auto company stocks, that the car manufacturers are value traps.

Most airlines are flat, give or take 3-4%. The truckers are terrible.

Consider going long here and on strength.

The rail stock may need more repair work before chugging to new highs.
