I posted yesterday that the market had to re-capture the 200 DMA in order to start any meaningful bounce and for a minute I thought it was going to happen as futures were up 10 points in pre-market. However, the cash market had its own plan and broke through the potential triple bottom level and ended up the day at an 5 month low. So at this point, I am leaning towards seeing 1.612 of A or W1 or 1335 level and then we'll see where the long term trend is at that point. I continue to think the current panic is just part of a correction but I am not going to find the trend so I am staying out of the market until 1335 hits (if it does). I bought back XIV today (16.88) and had a 5 point stop so I stopped out at 1365 (16.66) so we'll see at what price XIV will be at 1335? This has been so far a persistent decline without any meaning counter rallies so I think if we get deeply oversold, we will get a huge rally/counter rally.
