Sentiment update

We have a mixed picture in sentiment some reading below suggest we have reached bearish levels ( which would mean its time to get bullish) but they are not time sensitive at all and after such a severe correction a regular thing to happen. The crucial ones like the Citi and Rydex are nowhere near a bottom level hence plenty of downside scope. Also the MA of the ISEE are not at red flag levels yet although the 10 and 20 day MA are in the mid 90 levels. The bottom line is we are by price and sentiment at a volatile levels where 5 % swings in both directions are very likely for the time being as we also have astrologically a very volatile pattern right now, one we had that last time 83 years ago but the overall picture is rather heading for the worst in 200 years this summer scenario. Therefor the mantra remains sell into strength as we can expect much more downside with my SPX target at 900-25 ( which is not the worst case scenario).
