Gilead (GILD) and Salesforce.com (CRM) started this route. They can end it.

This is just a quick note to remind you how important those stocks are to the bottoming process (that is if there is going to a bottom).

After that you have to watch for Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR) and Google (GOOG), all of which have been hideous as the market has rotated to Microsoft (MSFT), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and even Intel (INTC).

I have always been a believer that there are a couple of key stocks that people watch and wait for a signal from.

These are the stocks.

Watch them.
