But how much more upside can there be?
My most important take is that the normal correlations between asset classes -- stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies -- is not holding today; this should concern Bulls in the next day or so , if it continues. Most importantly, bonds closed near their highs -- and that is not a RISK ON message. I took the road less traveled buying on Tuesday afternoon and I took the road less traveled shorting on strength today. I am struck by so many low-quality stocks -- which have been schmeissed -- are rallying in rather large percentage terms today. Again, not the best of Bullish signposts. It seems, in watching the business news channels that EVERYONE caught the bottom ... and are again complacent. Ignored in that observation is the monumental technical damage of August 2015 and the fact that the global economy is wobbly and valuations are rich. Ignored is that the market mechanism is broken and Monday is not the last of it in all likelihood. Raise your hand if you think this market is healthy. Lazlo? Brian?Jeremy? Thomas? Bueller? As I have written, Tuesday was a near-perfect capitulation bottom after two -90% days.

I added aggressively to my Facebook (FB) short (over $89 today) and materially increased my short exposure through SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) shorts all day on strength. As I posted in Columnist Conversation, were it not for a trip to the West Coast I would have been even more aggressive on the short side today.  (Medium-size short SPYs now). Banks are the world's fair. I like my early week pickups in this sector. A lot of technical analysts who were predicting another 10% drop on Tuesday are now looking for a rally towards the old highs. This provides little value-added to anyone as the rear window always has 20/20 vision. The close will be a function of the
