Stock Update (Short Trigger), Mega Caps to Watch and 24 Hour Notice – June 13
|June 13, 2012||Posted by admin under Stocks & Stock Market Analysis|
On June 7 I posted an article entitled Buy or Sell the Stock Market Bounce?, but instead of giving a direct answer I instead provided a strategy. If a certain set of conditions developed I proposed it would be a good time to get in–short.
Those conditions have materialized, indicating this market is likely to continue down and I prefer the short side.
The recent trigger was simple, and matched exactly to the trigger I described in the article above. Of course just because the trade has been triggered does not mean the market must go down. I could fly up tomorrow, but throughout my trader career I have enjoyed the reliability of this simple signal as long as it is used in conjunction with the trend.
The trigger, which occurred on June 11, is marked on the chart.
Therefore, I believe there is likely more downside to come. If this trigger is valid the S&P 500 should move down below the recent low at 1266.74. A rise back above 1336 is somewhat bullish but does not necessarily indicate the index is going to test the April high.

Two have been lagging – even when the market was rising earlier in the year – while two other mega caps have been stacking up impressive gains during this correction.
