COMMENTARY
US equities found some support on Wednesday, providing a needed pause to the almost daily selling that we’ve experienced in January.  Prices appear to have reached a near-term bottom.

Price/volume action improved a tiny bit, but we’ll need to see a lot of high volume buying to change the market outlook.

As mentioned on the OEW blog, expect a short-term rally and use it to “bearify” your portfolio.  This means short positions, buying put options, selling covered calls, or just selling your positions and sitting on the sidelines until conditions improve.
