Midday Market Commentary For 04-15-2014

Morning falling volume soon ramped up to moderate red volume that wiped away all of the mornings gains and sent the averages falling, The NASDAQ was off over 1 percent.

By noon the bears have once again taken control as we witnessed a classic 'pump-n-dump' and will probably see some more as the 'Sheeples' get sheared.

Follow up:

The short term indicators are leaning towards the hold side at the midday. The all important signs of reversal, up or down, have not bee n observed so we are mostly, at best, neutral and conservatively holding. The important DMA's, volume and a host of other studies have not turned, only a past 6% correction (and recovery) and that is not enough for me to start shorting. The MACD has turned down slightly, but remains at zero. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although shows a 8 % buy. (Remember this has been negative for weeks.)
