That was quick!


Well, I ain't often right but I've never been wrong.
It seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.

The two sides of the Hump Day tetherball...

Reasons for ursine optimism?

  • While two days do not a month make, Boo mapped out a defined risk game plan yesterday.
  • Google got thumped, leading to some N's under S's. Beta led the performance anxiety higher off the October lows.
  • Some non-confirmations emerged during this latest spike higher.
  • Extended tapes and lopsided sentiment often lead to trap doors.
  • Gap fillage (and downside reversal) in the homies.
  • Alotta firms close their '05 books today, potentially altering the supply/demand dynamic into year-end.

Resaons for bovine faith?

  • A pullback to S&P 1245 would be a healthy retest of recent acne.
  • No news is good news when performance anxiety manifests.
  • The brokers, banks and trannies, despite signs of recent supply, are a strong day away from all-time highs.
  • Corporates.


Overbought tapes can become more overbought, particularly when emotions are running rampant. I sense a meaty pullback but the timing has yet to crystallize in my mind's eye. It could be sooner (S&P 1275 is a relatively tight stop for those looking to play that way) or it could be early '06 business (after the performance fee checks clear).

Good luck today.
