Markets were down for the day, marking the fourth day in a row that the SP500 CLOSED DOWN below 1700 - a very bearish signal.
By 4 pm the averages were down in the -0.40% area completing 7 days trending downward another bearish indicator of more to come if the government gridlock comes to fruition. This house of cards is ready to topple. It isn't a matter of when so much as when.
This lack of recovery, Fed indecision and government gridlock is having a negative effect on investors. Today's market wanderings only add to investors misgivings about jumping in knowing full well this market 'house of cards' is built on a weak supporting foundation and could collapse without a moments notice. Short term indicators remain at 65% to 75% sell and hovering around 25% buy.
