SPXS Add Opp

The SP 500 is running into trouble at the first opportunity this morning, this despite news from China and the Greek rumor mill that might have been looked for as short covering excuses......oh yeah there aren't any shorts.

What is troubling is Corrigan's revelation that " Goldman Sachs was by no means the only bank involved with countries in these types of transactions... These transactions were not limited to Goldman Sachs and Greece . " Just whose debt numbers will be put under the microscope next? It's taking a long time but the Greek people are finally doing what any entity thats been defrauded by corrupt management has a right to d

INDU Chart Weakness

The good old Dow Industrial s points the way : click to enlarge Another 40 pt.s and it will be at the lows of the last 2 months, trapping a lot of longs. Another 200 points and it's new lows vs 4 months. It will be shocking if there is no race to save this here by the Central Banks.  click to enlarge
