Yes. I'm starting to question the previous bullishness I've had the last couple of days. Today's rally didn't seem healthy at all. Financials need to lead the way - or at least show some stability. Unless, there is a turn around in the financials (quickly), then my case for a bear market rally goes out the window.

I'll be going in mostly cash tomorrow. Tech can't lead the way out of this. Especially when Goog and others are at short-term overbought levels. I'm still not ruling out a possible bear market rally, but today's market action wasn't healthy, regardless of the Dow being up over 100, and especially when the put call ratio points for a bearish case.

BOTD, I think we can get ready to short RIMM. It is losing strength.

Nice call!
