Do you want to buy dips now


Now finally you see some mild fear scaring the dip buyers and stubborn bulls. You want to see people too scared to carry any position overnight.

I'd wait til BX and $XBD have stabilized and there's more capitulation in the IBD top 30 stocks.

Working thesis....a low volume rally in August, another downturn/test of lows in September and who knows what in Q4.

then again....it looks like today will be a 90% down volume day on comp.

perhaps buying some QLD/UWM into a gap down tomorrow or monday for a quick flip?

S&P 500 reports that intraday, only 16 of 500 are in the green. Will be a 90% down day in all likelihood.

Intraday, we're down from 193 of 500 above their 50 dma yesterday, to only 112. Also, only 266 of the 500 are above their 200 dma. When was the last time that happened? Take your pick, the Oct 2005 correction or the Jun 2006 correction.

Low RSI, high VIX in relation to ATR. Looking more attractive to me as we go. Will run the models when I get home. I will NOT be nibbling until (at least) after I see the reaction to the GDP report tomorrow. I'll probably buy the index tracker or leveraged tracker until I figure out the leadership.

Now with this further swoon in afternoon, we have enough scare, panic and fear.

there's nothing to fear but (no) fear, itself?

So Pradeep, I was wondering when did you start babysitting as a side job - by the look of the photo you need more practice.
