The Bounce Goes Boing!

Thursday, July 13, 2006 | 02:20 PM

I spoke with's Liz Rappaport yesterday about the markets; she very much captured my perspective:

"The bounce [from the June lows] has run out of steam," says contributor Barry Ritholtz, chief market strategist of Ritholtz Research and Analytics and president of Ritholtz Capital Partners, a New York-based hedge fund.

After losing 7.6% from its peak on May 9, the S&P 500 had bounced back 5% through the end of last week from its June 13 low of 1223.69. Ritholtz believes that bounce has run its course and a retest of the major indicies' June 13 lows may now be in order. The S&P and the Dow are still up 2.8% from their respective June lows while the Nasdaq is only up 0.85% from its June lows.

A successful retest of those levels -- of about 10,706 for the Dow, 1224 for the S&P and 2072.50 for the Comp -- is the most likely scenario, but is certainly not guaranteed. A hint of a more serious decline (and bear market) could be seen Wednesday as many exchange traded funds and indices broke through their 200-day moving averages."

Note that the Nazz JUNE 13 intraday low of 2067 is about where we are this moment.

If there is going to be a bounce in the QQQQs, this would be where it should happen from . . .

Selling's Overdone

I think they have overdone the selling on the news out of Israel, and I am in the process of contacting my more aggressive institutions and telling them to do some buying. Based on my index, the TRIN, I am suggesting going against the crowd. I'll have more specifics in my column Friday morning.

...and let's not forget that when the fed stops the markets usually go down. and as of yet I don't think we've seen any significant selling on the part of retail buy and hold 401k types, and at some point, those ugly memories of 2000-2003 are going to start hitting them, and they will, if things get much worse.
