Midday Market Commentary For 06-05-2014

At noon the SP500 set a new high at 1939.33 followed by the DOW at 16838 under moderate volume as the $VIX plunged to 11.60 just above the support at ~11.58. The BTFDers and 'Sheeples' are out in mass grabbing all they can so as not to miss out of the bull rush. I do wish them well, but do not share their exuberance into what looks painfully like a topping.

Follow up:

The short term indicators are leaning towards the hold side at the midday, but the session trend appears to be down. The all important signs of reversal, up or down, have not been 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 and that is not enough for me to start shorting. The SP500 MACD has turned up, but remains above zero at 14.84. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although shows a 56 % buy. members' sentiments are 67 % bearish.
