Midday Market Commentary For 06-11-2014

Morning negative action could be working off overbought conditions due to recent climbing markets. Whatever the reason, I would be cautious in setting any plan of action into cement as there are way too many negative's out there.

By noon volume was low but not anemic, averages were mixed with the $NDX in the green (for a moment) and everything else in the red in varying degrees of losses with the $RUT off the most. The bull hasn't rolled over and the bears out there are still cowering in the dark shadows ready to pounce. I would be careful at this time.

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 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 18.77. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although shows a 16 % buy. (down from 32% buy this morning) members' sentiments are 68 % bearish and Investors Intelligence sets the breath at 67.2 % bullish with the status at Bear Correction.
