Profit Takers Still In-Charge

The Dow started the month optimistically, closing up by 76 points on better than expected ISM index.

The strong follow up that we are hoping to see did not happen,instead, all we saw was that profit takers were still very much in control of the situation, beating down the market right after today's FOMC Announcement. Yes, profit takers were merciless in securing positions in cash even though the Fed did everything right, destroying what is to be a strong follow up day. Yes, if the market ended as strong as it was before the Fed announcement, investors might have enough confidence to start coming back in again. That didn't happen. This puts the Dow in an extremely perilous position jammed sideways between its 30 and 50MA. The good thing about today's market action is that it left the Dow with a reversal of its short term bearish momentum so its pretty much neutral now. There are obviously bulls in the market but they are just not as shrewd as the profit takers.

For now, the Dow remains in short term neutral trend within an intermediate and primary bull trend.
