Sentiment Analysis

04/13 - Nasty week, but it looks like a short term bottom. Strong reversal bars, possible double bottom on QQQ. Expect bounce and possible retest. Russia risk is still real and large. L/S is best here

04/10 - Another nasty day, but overall market still trending Long. (rotation continues - see page 9). I have been L/S and happy

04/04 (EOD) - Well, that was a nasty surprise Friday. Model is still long, but I will look more closely this weekend. Still primarily a rototation out of junk (QQQ and IWM - especially Internet and biotech) to the better companies, +/- some panic selling

04/03 (EOD) - Still Long. Overall Market looks strong, in spite of the correction today. (rotation from overpriced junk to good stuff is going on). Russia is getting under control - soon to be a non-event. Slow realization that they are intimately connected to the rest of the world's economy - in spite of their right-wing nuts. (much like ours in may ways).

XIV has a >>20% upside in the next 30 days.... (Inverse $VIX)

03/31 - Long
03/30 - Cash or L/S. Looks like a bottom may be forming, so time to de-risk the short positions. See Co-Cq on page 4, plus AMEX, which often leads. Gold dropping, so fear is decreasing.
Also, Russia has a plan - federalize the Ukraine - which will take time to play out. The troops will go home shortly. Back to Business as usual.

03/26 - still Short. Looks nasty.

03/13 - Short. Model turned short this AM

(Still) Continued huge political risk from Putin. Russia is massing troops on the Ukraine border, NOT a good sign. I expect that additional Ukraine states - Russian speaking at least - will follow Crimea. This is NOT GOOD, as it says treaties are worthless - and giving up your atomic bombs is a bad idea. Very destabilizing. Not a great investing time. Money moving to safe havens - gold and US $

Hold your stomach. This will likely get worse

OK, I am back.

I took some time off from this market timing approach, as the market has been green for some time
