Bottom Callers of the World Unite

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On May 19, 2006 @ 4:00 pm In Technical Analysis,Trading | Comments Disabled

Why has the market failed to bounce (or bounce much, anyway) ?

My guess is that everyone is calling for a bounce.

Technicians, value players, macro-economic observers, traders have by and large been looking for a bounce (present company included). Me, Jim Cramer, Cody, Bob Carver [1], Dick Arms, BCA, John Roque, and many many others all asked for a bounce.

Hence, we didn’t get it.

A few people deserve credit for not guessing the bottom: in particular, Alan Farley [2] and James Rev Shark DePore.

BCA ran this chart:

Bca_20060519_1 [3]


A Technician friend sends this chart along:

Nasdaq_gso_chart [4]

Until we get more disbelief, there will likely be no bounce . . .
