The QQQQ short term down-trend completed its 7th day on Tuesday. I remain mainly in cash with some short positions. I read a very interesting comment on the current debate on economic policy by David Brooks. I hope you like it. Meanwhile, all of my indicators are negative. It was so easy to make money on the long side when the GMI was 5 or 6 for so long. Now, I must refrain from taking on any long positions. Many key stocks look very weak right now. Time for me to be very defensive.
There were 107 stocks that came up in my submarine scan on Tuesday night. Below is one that has come up several times. The GMMA weekly chart for WDC below (click on to enlarge) shows that the short term weekly averages (black lines) are now crossing below the longer term averages (red). As a possible short, it is good to find a stock that was a prior leader (WDC quadrupled in 2009) and peaked about 4-6 months ago. The stock also has a lot of high volume spikes (not shown) on weeks in which the stock declined. These are all properties that might lead me to short a stock like WDC. What do you think?
