  • Market Notes: A Minor Correction In 3...2...1? -- February 13 1 comment
    Feb 13, 2013 1:34 PM

    1:25 pm ET: There's really not much to say about this market other than to repeat what I wrote yesterday: The major averages are looking tired and today are showing signs of cracking. The market leading Dow Transport Index (DTX) has been falling from its early morning high and a close in the red would be a strong sign that the market is ready to take a small correction. As one CNBC Fast Money trader said earlier, if you're sitting on "obscene" profits (his words), now would be a good time to book them. In spite of his interesting choice of words, I couldn't agree more with his sentiment. Moreover, I do think this impending correction will be a minor one and as such it is NOT the time for bears to initiate any long-term short positions. Right now, parking cash on the sidelines is the most prudent play.

    That's it for now.

    Note to Subscribers: There are no new entries but a new Stock of the Day was added a couple of days ago, in case you haven't checked it out.
