Closing Market Commentary For 06-11-2014

Most investors are concerned that today's losses could become more serious if this is more than a consolidation for an overbought condition.

By 4 pm there was a minor sell-off with some quick on the button BTFDers saving the session from further losses. The big loser of the day was the DOW and the least affected was the $NDX. Volume at the close was low to moderate and didn't reveal what action tomorrow might have.

Follow up:

Again, be careful in making any 'drastic' moves and be alert for sudden reversals.

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 flat, but remains above zero at 18.63. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although shows a 32 % buy. (up from 16% buy this afternoon) members' sentiments are 68 % bearish and Investors Intelligence sets the breath at 67.2 % bullish with the status at Bear Correction.
