Although the Insider Selling Indicator I have followed for years is not the best signal of market action, one hopes that the Key employees - CEOs- know what their company stock might do. In lieu of the Oct. deadlines ahead, that number blew up from a month ago's 13 to 1 Sellers to last week's 180 to 1 ! That is almost as high as the multi-year record of 235, and higher than the 108 number which occurred in mid-May 2009 - just as this 4 year Bull market was underway.

Even with today's 3-digit drop in the DJIA not much panic has set in for traders/investors. Au contraire, the Nasdaq to NYSE Volume shot up (speculative) to a high 2.76 to 1, near its record high of 3.15. 36B moved into Money Markets last week, which is exactly the same number that moved out of Equity ETFs for last month. Bond and In'tl ETFs remained the same, as did many other Indicators.
