  • as a result of the US and Euro sanctions. What O'bummer failed to mention is that the US had NEGATIVE 2.9% growth in Q1, well below expectations of all the economists who predicted positive growth. Same downside surprise is about to be reported for Q2. FED already knows the Q2 advance GDP number and is on damage control at their two day meeting and losing sleep tonight. Sorry Janet. Now what?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • IBD tomorrow's edition

    D C C on major indexes

    "Volume rose across the board,
    which resulted in a new distribution
    day for theS&P500.
    That made it six days of highervolume
    losses in recent weeks for
    the index."

    although the R2K was up slightly today, that critical average is still mired below its 200 dma and downward sloping 50 dma that is about to cross below the 200 DMA., the dreaded DEATH CROSS!

    and "E" on the IWM ETF.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • note the small caps closed down yesterday 0.50% and firmly below both the 50 and 200 dma's. The IBD MF index also closed down 0.27% although the broad market was up. This indicates further deterioration in most stocks. fewer and fewer companies carrying the indexes are like a ticking time bomb! Then one day, we start a weekly 30% decline. BE PREPARED. They know nothing! The biggest FED experiment ever. the rich get far richer and the lower and middle class get poorer. Thanks Obama and the FEDERAL Reserve for hooking up the big banks. Short with everything you got or simply go to cash because this crash could be far worse than 2000-2003 or 2007-2009. go back and see what the strategists target for the indexes were in late 2007-late 2008. they were ALL WRONG by 40% of more! and will be wrong again.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Monday and Thursday making July a down 10% month, then the collapse really accelerates into august and September. We are in a world of hurt. WMT doing bad, AMZN etc. so folks are upgrading to Target and Nordstrom??? and The Demoula's/Market Basket grocery chain may simply go under because of their stupid employees on strike over who they want for CEO. John Hussman says biggest stock Market Bubble ever! Right now. The MB folks will simply need to drop out of the labor force after they lose their jobs and do the LT disability stuff and Obama Care. No one will hire folks that strike. that's a fact.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • between SPX and IBD MF Index, small caps and NYSE advance/decline line heading down and not making new highs with market. Same deal as Oct 2007 and Sept 2008, "Uptrend under pressure" raise cash. It can't continue. a big event on US soil is imminent. Hint what happened with the white flags on the Brooklyn Bridge? They're here!!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • IWM - $96
    IBD 50 $130
    IBD Mutual Fund Index 870

    Better buckle up for the summit plummet. And that will just be the beginning of the carnage as the new recession gets under way. They have no idea how bad it is, no idea.

    and Obama speech writers at it again for his 10:50 am reading of a teleprompter. He is way over his head. BHO has no clue what he's dealing with. Putin is 100 times smarter than our president.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • re-read "How and when to sell stocks short" by WM O'neill. IWM is back below declining 50 DMA and on the 200 DMA. the death cross is imminent and three test of 50 DMA after the initial break off the top. The R2K collapse will bring the entire market with it like the NDQ collapse in March 2000 brought the entire market with it. the R2K bubble is far larger than the NDQ bubble in 1999-2000. Look at the R2K's trailing and forward PE's and make sure you are looking at the correct PE that includes all the components that are losing money every quarter.

    yep.....was correct as futures declined as the night wore on.....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • PS AAPL and MSFT will miss estimates (even the whispers) and downgrade outlooks when they report.........

    get to all cash!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Futures will be at Lows of day by the US open tomorrow. complete global stock market carnage this week. The Israeli TA-50 was down 1,87% today alone. Another big International event will occur this week that drives the markets down. This will be a larger event than the Russian Airline massacre and it could be on American soils. Be prepared and get to cash now. The S & P 500 could be down 20-30% in a week or less with no warning! But who knows, Billionaire John Cary could save the day.

    IBD Uptrend Under Pressure but .....

    Here’s a quick question for you. What do the following years have in common:

    Interesting article on Drudge Report tonight from MarketWatch

    1853, 1906, 1929, 1969, 1999

    Pass the question around your office. Call your money manager and ask him or her, too. Post it on your office notice board.

    Give up?

    Those were the peaks of the five massive, generational stock-market bubbles in U.S. history.

    Investors who bought into stocks around those peaks ended up earning terrible returns over the subsequent 30 years. Forget “stocks for the long run.” They ended up with “stocks for a long face.” The bigger the bubble, the worse returns.

    And, according to a new research report, we are back there again.

    U.S. stocks are now about 80% overvalued on certain key long-term measures, according to research by financial consultant Andrew Smithers, the chairman of Smithers & Co. and one of the few to warn about the bubble of the late 1990s at the time.

    The five dates listed at the start of this article, he says, are the only times since 1802, when data began being tracked, when stocks have been 50% or more overvalued according to these measures. And only two of those bubbles — 1929 and 1999, both of which were followed by disastrous crashes — were bigger than today.

    That’s right: According to Smithers’s data, we are now in the third biggest bubble in U.S. history.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The IBD folks should have probably switched to Market in Correction after today's very negative action. But didn't because NYSE volume did not increase from yesterday. However, on the widely traded "Institutional favorite" small cap ETF, IWM slid 1.5% dropping further below its now declining 50 dma and volume spiked 31% . Other Institutional quality ETF's with massive daily volume experienced disturbing action: SPY saw volume increase 57% over prior day and QQQ volume increased 37% with both showing steep declines and significant institutional distribution. Market could crash 30% tomorrow if Obama/Biden drops a Nuke on Moscow. More likely it continues a series of lower highs and lower lows as the small and mid cap space is experiencing. Study the IBD 50, 85/85, New America and IBD Mutual Fund Index of the best and brightest in the business with proven track records getting clobbered. Don't let CNBC and the other talking heads convince you to hold the the impending carnage. Remember, Individual Investors can exit in a few minutes and go to 100% cash but the large pension, hedge and mutual funds could take weeks or even months to unwind their positions in individual stocks and ETF's.

    1145 just breached next support 1080 then crash. Russell 2000 will lead this massive downdraft. broad market to follow. be careful with all the hype of dow and s & p 500 at all-time record highs. one day we could be down 20% with no problem. just need the EVENT. ultimately down at least 50% across all indexes and there is nothing the FED can do.

    getting worse. IWM down another 0.27% today, the IBD 50 down 0.4% and Mutual Fund index also down. Underlying deterioration taking place. don't be fooled by the Dow and S & P 500 hitting all time highs. the crash of 30% will be so swift when the EVENT occurs. Be PREPARED! You will see soon. will be nowhere to hide. Hint: it has to do with the FEDERAL RESERVE.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Massive H & S patterns in daily on IBD 50, IBD 85/85, and IBD New America Indexes as well as the IBD Mutual Fund Index. and a double top on the Russell 2000? Uptrend under pressure with 5 distribution days on NDQ and NYSE indexes. This could be THE END of the 5.5 year BULL market. EXTTEME Complacency with record Bull-Bear spread at Investors Intelligence. all Bulls very few Bears. Major Top! don't be fooled by the Dow. Crash is Imminent. What will the catalyst be? The Midwestern cold snap, an attack on American soils? White House Down? N Korea attack on Capitol? al-Qadia in DC social group? ABC News' turn on BHO? sell now and ask questions later. the US consumer is tapped out.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • JPM GS, INTC and Yahoo and miss and downgrade their outlooks. Buckle up for the stock market plunge.

    really? 90% of the time when a country wins the World Cup their stock market drops 3-5% the next day. There goes that argument. If Argentina would have won it would be 20% down since they are bankrupt like the USA. So the US inflated/manipulated market will crash. It's over, 5.5 years "long in the tooth" bull on false hope and change. GDP will be negative in Q2 and Q3....just ask Walmart...unless of course the Feds double count the Boeing planes that feel off the train into the river.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
