NASDAQ - Bearish Engulfment

Today the NASDAQ opened higher but finished on its lows forming a bearish engulfment pattern. A bearish engulfment is a reversal pattern and suggests that we may see a pullback over the next week or so.

The last time the NASDAQ had a bearsih engulfment was in November and the market subsequently sold off as can be seen in the above chart. Given the overbought condition of the market, I expect a pullback here and the bearish engulfment might be the trigger for such an event. The bearish engulfmetn pattern will be confirmed if today''s low is taken out tomorrow.

You have an uncanny ability to be right. You advise that the market would continue to go up. It did - and it went up beyond many peope's expectation. It confirms that traders will go broke by trying to pick market top.

Good call Kevin. Keep them coming. I covered yesterday and reshorted some today. However, I had shorts opened since 1/3/11. Some worked, some didn't.
