Dow makes new low, but not Nasdaq

October 2, 2013 // 0 Comments

  Dow makes a new low today and I caught a nice short on the early rally.  But the Nasdaq is not declining in synch – and this is what keeps me from being full-on bearish the Dow (yet).  I still believe the nonsense around the US shut-down is just an excuse for bulls to take profits, and eventually, the Dow will work higher.
