Sunday, March 17, 2013


Friday was the first down Friday of 2013 - according to Jeff Hirsch ( of the legendary Stock Traders' Almanac) markets tend to sell off after St. Patty's Day, especially when they fall on  a Sunday. Part of the rationale is that people are amassing money to pay their Income Tax next month; we saw in the previous week a huge selling of MMFunds, but last week it again reversed to adding $5B to money markets.
CEO Insider Selling was over $1M last week, reaching 44:1 over Buyers.

Here are the numbers - more commentary on them can be found at my column:
