We gave the market every
opportunity to prove itself and the very next day…yonk!
Any thought
that Wednesday’s action was meaningful should be wiped out of your mind. Just
another noisy bear market day. It meant absolutely nothing to the bull cause.
Why do we say that? For the hundredth time, bear market rallies are sharp,
noisy, make you feel better and then cripple soon after. Bingo!


The NASDAQ/NDX and SOX have already given back everything…in spite of all the
bullish talk. We repeat…these areas lead the market up and they lead the
market down. But that’s not the new problem. That’s an old problem. The new


The TRANSPORTS  are toast. We told you that they recently put in a double top.
They have now rolled over. The TRANSPORTS dumped over 200 points…and we
believe it is just the start as a major top has been put in for the RAILS,
TRUCKERS and the like. 4387 is the June lows…which we believe will be next.
Not good.


OILS continue to roll over with the OIH

now completing a major top.
$131 is good support. A break below and there is only air down to the $120 area.
Not good.


STEEL is rolling over. ALUMINUM is rolling over. COPPER is rolling over. GOLD is
rolling over. SILVER is rolling over. In a word, COMMODITY stocks are now
rolling over.  Not good.


INDUSTRIAL, HOTELS, GAMING and just about every other area…into the ugly pile.
Ignore at your own risk.


What’s working? What’s working gives the market just another characteristic as
to why we are so worried.


What’s working?


Supermarkets, Tobacco, Utilities, Cleaning products, Food, Beverages, Drugs,
miscellaneous Healthcare, and some Financials.


Why would this be? The market is the greatest forecasting mechanism and right
now, this market is screaming a major slowdown, if not a recession, in the
coming quarters. Every one of these areas outperform before a major slowdown or
a recession occur. This is not opinion. This is classic action that we have seen
before so many times. The market is all but guaranteeing that in the next
quarter or two, we are going to get a sharp deceleration in economic
growth…maybe even a contraction. We don’t worry about why. There are a number
of reasons we could put out there. Just realize that it is the characteristics
of past cycles that we have studied that get us in front of things. If you are
skeptical, just keep in mind, we were the ones who in August of last year put
out the impending top in HOUSING before everyone else…and took a lot of nasty
emails because of the call. That call came from the same cycle work that we are
seeing right now.
