Note: I have an appointment in the morning so there won’t be watchlist for Monday.
Obviously last week was bad for the bulls. There was a lot of technical damage done on higher than average volume. The usual index charts are below along with a bunch of individual stock charts. Sorry that i couldn’t get to all of the requested charts…
Here’s the Nasdaq chart:
The S&P 500:
The Russell 2000/small caps continue to lead the way down:
Here’s Crocs, Inc. (CROX). Are they about to do a Heely’s (HLYS) dive?
Even the mighty Apple Inc. (AAPL) got hit last week:
Ditto for the even mightier Google Inc. (GOOG):
Speaking of mighty, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) has managed to stay above the financial fray and seems to be taking money from all the lesser firms. But even they took a hit last week.
The other day I mentioned that I was stalking VMware, Inc. (VMW). I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I bought some VMW on Friday in my IRA at $89. There was no technical reason, I just thought the selling was over-done (-30% this month). My stop loss is in place in case I was dead wrong.
Here’s Lululemon athletica inc. (LULU)
And eBay Inc. (EBAY)
It’s safe to call Abaxis, Inc. (ABAX) a leader right now:
Garmin Ltd. (GRMN) is no stranger to wild swings… not for the faint of heart. I gave up day trading GRMN long ago because it acts like a thinly traded stock with wide spreads, etc.
It was a wild week in solar stocks, including Evergreen Solar, Inc. (ESLR)
Here’s iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index ETF (FXI), a China proxy:
Here’s Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD). Will the Canadian banks get dragged into the muck with their American counterparts?
And last but not least, an oil play — Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. (DO)
Two more downgrades. We’ve swung from everything up to almost everything down with a quickness.

*** I’m simply using the indices’ relations to their 200, 50 and 10-day moving averages to tell me the long, intermediate and short-term trends, respectively.
