June 15 2011 - More Downside To Come?

Today's selling just confirmed my suspicions as per my market comment from yesterday. It is impossible for the market to have any sustained upside until the financials join in. They do not need to lead, but they must definitely stop falling. I also read today a great article by Jeff Miller over at about what it takes to be a successful investor.  His article, combined with my article on treating your investing like a business, makes for compelling reading.

Below is the past 10 days. Predominantly lower highs and lower lows. Today, yesterday's rally was wiped out and the S&P500 ended up lower and closed near those lows. The March lows are getting closer but the 200 day has not yet been broken. Once that happens I believe there could be more selling.

The past few weeks has seen some of the higher volume levels for the past 12 months. This could be a good sign that many of those who want to sell, have sold, or it could be bad sign that the market is going to drift lower.


Just remember that selling naked puts on stocks you do not want to own is a bad idea in a down market. Stocks can fall further and faster than many investors realize. But for myself, I look forward to fire sale prices, however many stocks are nowhere near fire sale prices yet. I believe there is more selling ahead. I read an excellent article today discussing why the European Union will not allow Greece to default or leave the union. It made a lot of sense, so who knows, perhaps things will work out in the end. I just never can see how piling more debt on to debt is a solution. .
