Closing Market Commentary For 09-27-2013

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.

Follow up:

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.

The DOW at 4:00 is at 15258 down 70 or -0.46%.

The SP500 is at 1691.75 down 6.92 or -0.41%.

SPY is at 169.00 down 0.78 or -0.46%.

The $RUT is at 1074 down 4 or -0.39%.

NASDAQ is at 3781 down 6 or -0.15%.

NASDAQ 100 is at 3230 down 4 or -0.12%.

The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been down and the current daily bias is sideways.
