I don't want to kill you, and you don't want to be dead.

So a 4% selloff from the expiration high is what the market gives us. I am still looking for increased volatility during the next 3 weeks to shake out both the new longs, as well as those shorts who have still not covered. Once that happens, we should see that move to 1000 SPX that I have been looking for.

If you have been leaning from the overbought camp, today get us back to the top of that 815-835 SPX range from 2 weeks ago. My play here is to get the shopping list ready, and start to place some bids at some names that have truly showed a bottom. Watch your charts, and keep tabs on the new leaders. We know the true rally will not be from the dead money banks. Not sure if energy or natural resources will have the juice, their charts are not looking so well. Large cap tech seems the next logical sector, so I will come up with a QQQQ strategy to follow.

Be careful out there.

NBA and NHL playoffs in action. Spurs need a win tonight or else they are done.
