  • S&P 500 In 'Buy The Rumor, Sell The Fact' Mode [View article]
    I am starting to think instituions and hedge funds are planting stories and BS data to drive up this market so they can sell off everything prior to year end. We all know this cliff thing will not be done, or at least not be a good solution either way come Dec 31st. There are many ways the funds can drive momentum and prices to new highs so they can then throw a short attack and wipe all longs out.

  • Rumors Of A Deal Come And Go [View article]
    Hedge funds planted all the news today to drive up the market. Then the BS Harry Reid thing right at 2:30 (C part of the day). Perfect timing as the market is at a top technically and looking to rally more. They played the same crap a couple weeks ago at the exact same time. They knew Stops would trigger like mad down to support, then they allowed it to be bought all the way back up to the top in a short squeeze. Today was total manipulation and makes me sick. Best to stick with futures trading so you can get in and get the hell out with your profit fast.

  • ECB Announcement Makes The Rally Even More Unsustainable [View article]
    Good luck on the shorting. Not sure why you don't wait until actual selling starts to heat up and bad news comes in droves to sell short. Seems you will only get back to even when it's all done. I don't bet against a market no matter how irrational it is.

  • Why The Market Feels Like It Is Topping Out [View article]
    I agree with your view on the markets. Unfortunetely this market is controlled by traders that appear to want a true double top at 1419. The market rallies on good and bad news, more so on bad news it seems. September could be one great month for the bears.

  • 6 Reasons Why Monster Stock Rally 2012 Is Right Around The Corner [View article]
    The market is being pushed up right now by extreme low volume. Everyone is on vacation in Europe. They are not going to do a thing in the next month. And the Fed, not gonna happen, ever. They have signalled already many times, the congress needs to fix this mess. I have a feeling the market could keep at near highs until this BS late August FOMC meeting. Then sell off huge when Uncle Ben does nothing. The market now is textbook example of an Irrational Market. And the charts look exactly like the summer of 2007.

  • Daily State Of The Markets: How Did We Get Here? [View article]
    I have seen this pattern before. The market is rallying too much and expecting major moves from the fed, but I really doubt they will do a single thing at all. Maybe something minor. The probably is the market is priced for something really huge in order to rally further. The reward should be on the downside (short) going into Wed afternoon or Thursday after the market digests the results. Just last week Uncle Ben said that congress needs to get their act together and the Fed really is not the issue here. Do you think that changed in a week, I don't think so?!

  • Is Herbalife Now The Trade-Of-A-Life? [View article]
    Sorry, I don't trust anyone with a name like 'Einhorn' It reminds of that man turned to woman in the movie Ace Ventura's Pet Detective. You know the one with the winky stuffed between his legs.

  • 2012 Is Beginning To Look Like 2011 [View article]
    I disagree with going short right now. From a technical standpoint the market is selling off and holding support lines as one would expect without any major news. I think the bottom may be in and we may double bottom next week (very near current level) before heading higher into the end of the month. My other guess is that traders are selling shares to pay '11 taxes. Yes, some of us made money last year. I know that's why I am not buying this week :(

  • Daily State Of The Markets: The Great VIX Debate [View article]
    I like this article. Thanks for not making too many opinions but just stating the facts. I hope this pull back comes in the next week. The market has changed trends to a steeper climb up this week normally signaling a top of some sort coming.

  • Vivus: Another Potentially Safe Short Play On Likely Drug Rejection [View article]
    Michael this is a lousy article as other comments state. When to short is also important, Not yet... VVUS should rally to 30.00 prior to Apr 17th. This is a time to buy the stock, not short it.

  • Beware The Honey Badger Stock Market [View article]
    The question is where do we go from here. The Greece thing is baked into the cake, as coming out positive. I would not be surprised to see a big rally up in a steep manner on good news and that will finally bring out the bears and cause the correction (or maybe the high oil price being a drag on the recovery).
