Midday Market Commentary For 06-23-2014
The averages have melted off the morning highs and recorded a new session low for today, but will it stay? Not to worry as ‘Stock Market Tuesday’ is tomorrow and the averages will gain. The ‘Wall Street Crooks’ are lowering the prices today so they can buy low and sell high tomorrow. Ah, the slaughter of ‘Sheeples’.
By noon the volume was anemic, averages were melting downward and I am about to fall asleep – where are those volatility move that were to happen today?
News is quiet, investors are sitting on their hands and the HFT algo computers are gearing up for their next move. Investors playing in this fixed market place do not have a chance it seems sometimes.
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 16.83. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although Barchart.com shows a 0 % hold. Investing.com members’ sentiments are 60 % bearish and Investors Intelligence sets the breath at 68.5 % bullish with the status at Bear Correction.
