Putting the Cap on a Bad Quarter

After holding positive ground for most of the day, the bulls faded badly and put a cap on a very poor second quarter. The weakness into the close was probably partially a function of big funds dumping some losing stocks in what is already going to be a poor quarter. They might as well purge themselves of some baggage and try to start fresh as we kick off the third quarter.

The weakness out there today was primarily in the Nasdaq and small-cap indices, while the DJIA and S&P 500 held up better. That is the reverse of what we saw earlier in the month, and is even more surprising when you consider the weakness in financials today.

Although the market is oversold, we aren't getting the sort of intense selling that washes out weak holders and sets us up for a bounce. Although there is a lot of worry and griping, there isn't any real panic. What we really need is some bad news to shake out the hopeful bulls that are still hanging on.

Keep in mind that the beginning of a new month is often positive, so we may see a little relief in the near term. However, the big picture remains decidedly negative, and until we get a little more fear, a lasting bounce is unlikely.

Have a good evening. I'll see you tomorrow.
