Tuesday Recap

Markets attempted to recoup some recent weakness Tuesday, but that rally faded by the end of the day. The action was the hallmark of a bearish move with indexes opening upon their highs and closing hard on their lows. Both the Nasdaq and S&P 500 closed fractionally lower, but gave up intraday gains of almost 1%. Further evidence of the weakening economy was witnessed by the follow though losses on FDX and UPS. Both of which pierced their 200 day MAs yesterday, a very negative sign (and more of this topic discussed below), and continued their slide today closing down nearly 1%. Big caps have joined the chorus of poorly performing stocks with AAPL ORCL WYNN BIDU IBM feeling the pain. We can certainly see a snap back dead cat bounce, but this market seems destined to move lower. So do not short blindly, here. Pick your spots and utilize your discipline as always. PLL reports earnings Wednesday after the close and the Fed reports its Beige Book at 2pm.

I will be vacationing in Montauk for the rest of the week, so no blog posts will be written.
