Simple. When the technicals turn, the fundamentals take over. The shorts don't really know, and are trying to distort, the fundamentals. Every attempt they have made is woefully inadaquate and easily disputed. The won the battle, the war rages on.
Current reaction to the sharp runup was predictable by the increased top volume and signs from the market in general. Questions would be about turnaround of short term down trend, e.g. will a santa rally help to push drys to new highs or are technicians like tower correct with a retracement into the sixties...I think the market will tell us coming Monday / Tuesday
