Knocking Down a Bear With Legs

This 24-second video pretty well sums up the situation with my bearish position...

So, I believe my shot is hitting the right mark ... but the damn thing has legs holding everything up. Yet by an increasing look of fatigue and by gravity ... I still believe the market will give and hit the floor.

OEX 5-min

A counter-trend rally following last week's initial, 5-wave decline (5.20 - 5.21) continued today. Similarity to last Wednesday's (5.20) counter-trend rally persists.

Any moment now the market's legs look to give out. A growing number of technical indications continue suggesting gravity likely will have its way. By the simple manner decidedly weakening technical conditions are persisting a large thud just as well could come sooner rather than later.
