I have a short position against the S&P 500 and despite Friday’s EoD reversal and yesterday’s down day, as noted to subscribers in an update, I don’t feel very good about its prospects. I am net long the market, and that is for a reason; recent signals have been more bullish than bearish.

Greece? Ha ha ha… was Greece 1 bearish? How about Cyprus? How about the litany of other meltdowns around the world since? In the price obsessed casino (where patrons checked any concept of value at the door), it seems to be all bullish because even when backing out the 24/7, 365 inflationary global policy hoses we realize that over bullish sentiment keeps getting reset by these anxious events and the bull eats that for breakfast.
