Marketline Report for Wednesday, September 4th
SHELLADY ... "Unless we get some new bullish news, and we've heard that thing before, you gotta feed the bull every day, right? Well, we haven't been able to feed the bull every day and, anecdotally, the evidence coming from the crop tour has been more of a black cloud. Things look to have caught up, or at least look better than they were. The dollar is still pretty strong. That's another black cloud, right, and the funds being as short as they are, that's another black cloud. So, just seeing all these black clouds, it doesn't mean there's a guaranteed move lower, it just means that when you take a bigger view at this you kind of have to look things from that point of view and there's enough black clouds out there to say, that unless we get something out of China or we get some surprise or some bullish, fundamental news, not technical, this market looks to be trading on its heels and a little bit more of a defensive posture rather than being aggressively to the upside."
