Crash Scenario in Place

By on August 3, 2011

The stock market is currently collapsing after the S&P 500 closed below its 200 day moving average yesterday.  The Dow is on track for its 9th straight down day; the first time since 1978.

Previously, the S&P 500 approached the breakeven mark for the year in March and June.  Both times marked a bottom and the market recovered significantly.  This 3rd time may be the charm for the bears to overwhelm the bulls.

There will be a rally at some point.  The problem is that it may be from much lower levels.

    I’m betting on a rally sooner rather than later. The usual suspects have emerged with their doom and gloom prognostications.

    Yeah, Cramer cracks me up. On Thursday he gave the viewers of Mad Money the all-clear for buying 1/2 positions on Friday, with more later if the market fell further.

    Today when the Dow was down 150 he said he could see no reason to buy stocks now!
