The market is rolling over. Internals on all indexes have rolled over and are in a downtrend mode. Every bounce is a selling opportunity. Seasonal weakness in September October. Fed taper guaranteed now. Retail investors are euphoric, pouring record amount of cash into stocks. Margin borrowing at all time highs. SPX earnings estimates keep coming down, while PE's keep going up. Greed isn't going to pay off.

I think this is a good time to use bounces to build longer term short positions.

are you long or short? I presume LONG?

I added to longs yesterday on the flush. Nothing bearish around yet. Had a 20 point sell off, which is nothing in the context of the strong and POWERFUL rally we have seen IMO.

sorry, market sell off was 7 points :) As I say, nothing alarmist and I presume you are long.

No I'm short now. Russell and SPX.

Sell signals are in place. I posted charts over the past couple days. Why would I be long ?

How do you expect to profit from shorts when retail stocks like Victoria's Secret are bursting to new highs?

Speculation and maniacal chasing of leading stocks hasn't really slowed down yet.

You'll see.

Btw, speculation and maniacal chasing, aren't bullish things.
