Last hour of Trading, will shorts tip their hand?



March 20, 2009 – Comments (6)

Will they cover ahead of close or gamble on bad housing numbers to continue on Monday.

If they start covering then I will assume they know something ahead of the numbers on Monday. On the otherhand if they start shorting more then the numbers could be bad.

Listen to the guy who is short-term this way or that, or listen to the guy with 12k caps points, an 87% accuracy, and someone who, had you listened to 2 years ago, would have made you money and you'd have beaten the market by 50% or more. 


I will not become even short-term bullish until many of my brethren who see the bearish reality see the markets as fundamentally bullish, as opposed to "Candy Mountain" bullish where your sweet little unicorns will lead you into a trap that will cut your kidneys out.

4th week in March is hostorically known as the start of Tax refund season which ends in May.

Hence you get the term sell in May and go away.
