Still long LVS/XME /VVTV and just wondering about the recent under performance of the EWZ this has been a big dog during the last 12 months and now lagging -
Looking to add to LVS and XME - as I don't see the markets getting crushed anytime soon.

Bought the dip today and now am long XME LVS BAC and small guy VVTV - as it looks like equities will continue the upward move probably taking out the tough 1150 resistance level-
RSI 2 levels not that stretched at under 70 on most major indexes - I suspect lots of folks bought that dip as that has been the money trade for some time.
LOOKING TO DIP

Equities finally working off the over bought levels that were attained yesterday when the VIX was more than 10% under the SMA 10 and the RSI 2 levels on the SPX was at/near 97-
So the sell off starts and I am looking to scale into some XME EWC and maybe some others- don't think today is the end so waiting for later in the week to scale into most of the trades.
Big Mark admits he took roids - not all that shocking - the big news is he said they didn't help him hit home runs- what nonsense- they only helped me with injuries - sure - that is why all these guys took these banned substances - cause they didn't think they would help

Markets overbought at these levels - as RSI 2 was in the high 90's on the SPX - and with the VIX so far under the SMA 10- it was a pretty good bet that the market would sell down from those levels.
