Selloff was not a surprise

Sell offs like what we are witnessing consists of clustered days with extreme weakness. So there might be few more ugly days. Then the market will stabilise again. The sellers exhaust themselves at some stage.

Panicky sell offs like the current ones have higher probability of rebound moves. Slow methodical sell offs are different in their behaviour.

I went to lunch with one of my vendors and when I got back to my desk the DOW was down 200pts and I was stopped out of a couple of my favorite stocks. I do have a defensive play working but not enough leverage. I'm thinking I will sit this one out and wait for lower prices. Looks like that is the path of least resistance.

Pradeep:
What stocks are worth looking at, with large Indian exposure and (Indian) ADRs which can withstand the current hiccup? Thanks in advance.

A better opportunity on long side should present in few weeks or months. Panic selling always leadsto rebound.

None of the Indian adr's currently have the relative strength necessary to rebound vigorously.
