I think this is the point where retail buy and wholesale sell
And what does that mean? If it's that retail always get it wrong and wholesale always get it right then one wonders why there's been some pretty spectacular losses from the wholesale guys over the years.

Do you think Wall Street would sully the remembrance of the dead by selling off stocks.

Oh wait a minute they are b@st@rds aren't they.

Two words...
Leverage & greed
...and how much retail money actually finds it's way to the real market? The trading retailers are mostly trading against their brokers who might lay off their net imbalance to reduce their risk overall, but it's not going to amount to much in the overall scheme of things.

The investor retailers are probably doing most of it via funds etc and the amount of direct purchase/sale is small beer compared to that.

To me, it's always seemed a pretty far-fetched idea that retail traders can throw enough money directly into the real market to cause sufficient of an impact for the wholesale brigade to benefit.

bullish for sp500dec 1800 target 1784.8/85.5 trendline

I really don't care what he says, I only go with what chart says.....

If it goes above 60 I close my position in loss else if it oscillates between 25 - 45 I will still be short.
