This is an especially grueling tape because micro capped biotechs are again running alongside oil and chemicals, making it increasingly alluring to those wanting to partake. The simple fact of the matter is, those industries can be rugged at any moment. Look at the divergence between small biotech and large, vis a vie $LABU — hammered to dust.
Along the chain of market cap performance, tera caps are doing best — off by 0.2%, which is great in comparison to the small caps -1.35%. Bear in mind, breadth is decent at 52% because of widespread gains in financials, oils, gold, and other commodities.

Some of you have managed spectacular gains the past two days, while I sit here down 0.5% MTD. Admittedly, I am behaving like a sort of pussy, cowardly watching from the safety of cash.

It seems to me the easy money has been made and I am more likely to screen myself a deeper hole than escape from the pangs of mediocrity.
I do have a plan and will execute it after 3pm.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
