Take away all the noise. Take away the resignations in Europe. Take away the TARP. Take away the printing of money. Take everything away. The most important thing I am seeing right now is a potential wall being built at the 1250-1280 S&P area. Take a look at the vicious selling on 10/31 and 11/1 combined with today's early action and you have nothing more than the potential for serious resistance shaping up at these levels. If that's the case, I expect to see some tough sledding in the near term. Already, I am seeing some of the weaker areas shaping troublesome charts. Nonetheless, this market is going to remain a tough proposition on a daily basis. That has not changed.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
