Closing Market Commentary For 06-09-2014

The large caps came off their noontime highs and fell into negative territory for brief moment, mostly just to alleviate an overbought condition.

By 4 pm the markets had climbed back up into the green, but remained flat on lower volume. Both the DOW and SP500 had new closing highs, but that has been the norm after gaining new highs. Today the bears rolled over.

The more the media cry the markets are going to fall, the higher the markets rise.

What Is Driving The Market Right Now According To Mainstream Media






The short term indicators are leaning towards the hold side at the close. 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 18.38. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although shows a 24 % sell. members' sentiments are 66 % bearish and Investors Intelligence sets the breath at 66.1 % bullish with the status at Bear Correction - chart is on a p&f sell but is rising without having moved above 68%.
