Sleepy Suckers Still See Sunlight

Honestly, we could be on the verge of seeing the entirety of this year's gains evaporate in a heartbeat. Yet there apparently exists little concern for this possibility...

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many a song?

We could say go to sleep little babies, but this would be blind to the fact they already are well into dream land. How many still have visions of buying the dips, too! As for background noise coming from today's general strike shutting down much of the European continent? Who needs Europe! A Congress complicit in shutting down the physical economy is being greased to cut the social safety net, too, so strikes and violent mayhem soon coming to the U.S. likely will prove just as bullish here as in the euro-zone, no? Where do they find these people? Ah, the Ivy League.

Now, really, we are probably not going to see the market violently collapse before the end of the year. Still, it appears a fairly safe bet selling pressure will persist over coming days. Major index lows of late-May are squarely in the cross hairs.
