  • Stocks Selloff Notching A Gnarly Distribution Day 2 comments
    Apr 28, 2010 3:50 AM | about stocks: PCLN, AAPL, BIDU, GOOG, GS, CREE, GMCR, DECK, CMG, AMZN, PNRA, V, MA, ISRG, NFLX, PCP

    For some odd reason market commentary was not updated by the person that updates it on my site tonight. I am not sure why and now I can not log in to my chat room (first time in at least six months). So I will post something I posted intraday. I sincerely apologize for this. The bottom line is that we had signs we were coming to this point today and I would be very careful with going long stocks on this pullback if volume remains heavy. I want to point out that it is also not time to go short yet either. A series of lower highs and lower lows on distribution is first needed before you can safely enter the market on the short side. Anything can happen and it is possible that this might be a small pullback that will be followed by still higher highs.
