Another day with 1 sector positive (Golds).

The action this month to me seems like the insiders were trying to create a bounce in the market but failed due to the ongoing problems.

There were not enough shorts in the market to create bounces like before - further there has been no catalyst - only negative news flow.

Hence Goldman's onslaught today to blast the market with downgrades and the urging of short selling on broken stocks like Citigroup.

The thing that concerns me is that tech is only now starting to roll over - and seasonals for tech are weak now.

With the large drop in many troubled companies - no doubt some kind of news is coming out about one or more of them (involvency, a merger, another rescue, or perhaps in some cases realizatin that nothing was wrong at all - simply a bear raid ahead of earnings to create a negative sentiment to expect the worst for those earnings)

Still an odd complacency/lack of interest in the market as a whole - both on the bear and bull side.

Notice how no one was interested in gold/gold stocks - and then wham!
