As much as one can be, I was a little impressed that the NDX reached down to hit the support level I had drawn last Friday, some distance from where it had been. And the SP has also fallen to clear support.
These short term trends are now a bit extended, but the eyes will be on the economic data, especially the NonFarm Payrolls on Friday, and not the buffoonery in Washington with the Tea Party and the bought and paid for politicians.
There really is only one solution, and the prerequisite is political campaign reform. Partisanship is poison. But change cannot occur in times of influence peddling, bribery and corruption. So things must get worse before they get better.
The Banks must be restrained, and the financial system reformed, with balance restored to the economy, before there can be any sustained recovery.
