Bearish Aspirations

I can’t believe I’m actually saying this but there may actually be a chance for a short term correction in equities. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we? The current bullish trend isn’t even close to being threatened yet. And although we are seeing bearish divergences on the A/D and other momo indicators equities have proven many times over the past few years that they can stubbornly continue upward for weeks or even months on end. That said, let’s review what we are up against here:

The Quiet Before The Storm

In my recent momo update I was quite adamant about the increasing odds of a major market correction.

Time For Some Insurance

Let me precede this post with a few caveats, just so that we are clear. First up, I’m not really bearish here. As a matter of fact the Zero signal suggests that we’ll see more upside today and we could easily blast higher way above the ES 2000 mark. Second, what I am proposing here is nothing but downside insurance – meaning we are not attempting to nail a top and make fortunes riding the tape to the downside.
