Good Start to the Year, Beware Bear Wedge

In an excellent start to the New Year, the NYSE Composite (NYA) broke up thru both the last swing high and the now flat 50 day EMA (red line). The last few days of 2008 included both a Major Accumulation Day (Dec 17th, 2008) and a small cluster of ‘minor’ accumulations. Volume remains anemic and needs to pick up quickly to validate this bounce.

We could easily bounce to one of the first Fibs and 'undo' the forced, panic liquidation of the last few months of 2008 (Oct, Nov).

Beware, that this rally is already looking like the notorious Bear Wedges that occurred frequently throughout 2008.

Welcome back Ben, and hope you had a good festive season.
Please keep us posted on this possible bear wedge. I can't wait to get set short and everyone seems to think we are in for a bull move at least until Obamama has his honeymoon. I suspect a lot of longs could get caught with their pants down, because he won't get much of one !
