The Slide Continue For AAPL

Downtrend Continue

The US dollar continues to strengthen due to 'flight to safety' caused by the uncertainties from the Euro crisis and the direction of the US economy.

All the major sectors appear to have turned downward. Until the current uncertainties are removed from the market, the market will continue to be very news driven. Unless one is shorting this market, it is best to move to the sideline and wait for the dust to settle before start looking for long positions. Presently, it is best to be 'out of the market wishing you are in' than 'in the market wishing you are out'. Capital preservation is job one right now. Do not be tempted by a dead cat bounce that will likely to happen in the near term as the market is getting to the oversold condition. Wait for confirmation from the market that the end of the downtrend has occurred before moving back into the market.

Beware Of Today's DJIA New Closing High

Today, the DJIA closed at a multi-year high. But more importantly, neither the SP500, Nasdaq 100 or the Russell 2000 closed at a new high along with the DJIA. This non-confirmation reinforce the Dow Theory non-confirmation between the DJT and the DJIA. If today's closing high does not turn out to be the top for this uptrend, then this will at least serve as a signal to the market participants that the internal market has topped out and longs beware.

The following chart of the closing prices for the DJIA, DJTA, SP500, and the Nasdaq 100 shows the non-confirmation.

Until the DJIA closing high is confirmed by other indices, I would rather be "out of the market and wishing I am in" instead of "trapped in the market wishing I am out". I have scaled out most of my longs before today's close. For now, I will move to the sideline and watch patiently.
