Market Glance

The 5 least correlated positive return ETFs show numerous markets cracking critical support and making new lows. S&P 500 indicators are bearish across the board. The market remains fahklempt, buyers beware.¬† The only positive things I see are emerging markets holding above the November lows, and Treasuries failing to make new highs, despite ominous news…

Looking at DB in the charts gives me little faith in the banks debt, but so long as the market believes in these awesome debt instruments, I will certainly go along for…
