Market Analysis for May 25th, 2005

I commented in the just-posted chart text that the decline has been extremely orderly... almost stubborn- and this is happening after an upmove from 1146 to 1199 since May 13th! So the sellers (hedge funds?) still are not around. Where are they? Well, just maybe they are already short, very short... and either do not have the firepower, or the confidence to get shorter- and just might be a hair from taking the hit altogether- and covering the remainder of their positions. And that could mean higher prices are directly ahead. The only question might be how much higher? And of course, we are heading for a 3-day weekend at month-end, which usually implies a bullish seasonal factor... So, let's be aware (and at the very least, out of our short positions) that the odds may overwhelmingly favor the bulls after tomorrow's AM session.
