At this writing, the averages have halved their declines from the lows. The price action continues to be volatile but supportive of my view that the August lows will be intact. The hardest trade is to buy the dips for fear of a market collapse and breach of the aforementioned lows. Am I super confident? No. But putting together fundamentals, sentiment and "gut feel," this remains my baseline expectation and best guess. The Russell 2000 continues to underperform -- something of a worrisome signpost. S&P cash at 1915 now, or about 25 handles above my "Fair Market Value." Credit got crunched today, but acceptance of this as a norm (like the master limited partnership throw-up this week) seems to mark the end of a down trend, not a further collapse. Remember, defaults are still contained. Governments are about unchanged after the 10-year challenged 2.00%. The iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT) was much higher, now virtually unchanged. Gold stinks but other commodities seem stable and could be bottoming near term (let's keep a vigilant eye on this!) I am close to doubling up on Twitter (TWTR). Goldman Sachs (GS) looks like it will be the first to rally in a broader market advance. Gut feel here, too, but looking at price action. Autos geared up today. I added to General Motors (GM) and Ford (F), and thinking about sizing up both. As has been the case over the last month, I am trading aggressively in size and
Some of the broader market's recent weakness has stemmed from the fact that many companies are blacked out from doing share buybacks a few weeks prior to their earnings releases.
