In the last 3 months Small Cap stocks have had a hard time.  Today 60.17% of the stocks on the     S&P 600 Small Cap Index have lost money in the last 3 months.  However, there may be a bright spot.  Today 72.03% of those same stocks are trading above their 20 day moving averages.  It's too early to say the market is trending up; I'll say that when 50% of these stocks are trading above their 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages.  Till then, on Stock Picks I'll point out a few that are having good momentum.

I'm not a prophet of doom but I'm accumulating cash.  I'm selling any stock that is trading below its 100 day moving average and I'm not replacing anything in my personal portfolios.  I have an optimism/pessimism index and right now that index is at a negative.  I truly believe that in the short run - at least until after the mid-term elections; there is more downside risk to being in the market than there is upside risk to be sitting on the sidelines with your powder dry.  Let me document why I think that way.

Let's look at the Market as a whole:
