mss, Great chart. The lows above lows in the RSI are also quite compelling. Thanks for the post.

This does not look good for tomorrow. TWT, but consolidation is very likely and another 20 point day is not suggested..............unless it's down.

I certainly don't think it is wise to chase longs here. The question is do you buy the pullback or watch and wait to see if another big leg down is coming? We should mark a little time here and consolidate/successfully retest the lows if another big leg down is to be avoided. And that is pretty much what I expect from here. We'll see.

I like those charts. How do you find the time? I've got young kids off on school break and I have very little time right now to follow the markets.

cheers,

john

:) A trip down on the ratio would be nice IF it did not go below the other lows. I think we see several days of chop as suggested before, but in a consolidation mode, rather than a declining channel. How do I have time, too old for young kids, grandchildren live 2hr away, and my days are filled as I wont to fill them. Make pretty good change position trading, and when bored, will day trade some. :blush: Consult to some accounts and a few board mettings, but mostly do as I darn please. :D :cat:

$SPX bottoms today. I added my last tranche of Oct. 149 calls. :ninja: If I'm wrong, we are in a heap of trouble. cheers, john

So, are you saying, "We're not there yet, but we're getting into position where we may be close?"

Mark


I'm saying that 1420+/- should/might hold. If it does not then 1375/85 next level of holding.
Yes we will get more bounces as we are in a choppy decline of some sort, not yet defined, time wise nor depth wise.

The sad part, I did not really believe my own post. I was sure 1420ish would hold so I bought some stuff, back in cash, bought, back in cash.
Well after today 1355/60 is starting to look in play, and I'm paying attetion this time. B)
