According to the percentage of Dow (Industrial) stocks above their 50 day moving average, I'm paring back my long positions here. In one month's time, we've gone from extreme oversold level of 10% - reached in mid-August - to almost hitting the other extreme (see graph below). That's a very fast turnaround which we haven't seen for some time.
When I asked rhetorically "Was That Capitulation?" (hint, hint).
Now is not the time to jump on the bandwagon for a quick win. I'm still bullish for the long term but in the next little while I think we're in for a bit of turbulence as the market digests and adjusts. Plus, I don't think the risk reward is justified now when you're already sitting on a winning position to push it further from here.
