Stocks This Week: Sell Short Corning And Omnicron
The short sale recommendations have done well in this bear market. This coming week is June post-options (OPEX) week. As we can see in the histogram below, the S&P has historically been bearish in this interval since 1985. Given this outlook and currently weak technical condition of the market, the index is likely to fall further next week. However, this may be the last week of declining prices for some time. The composite of the one, four, and ten year cycles bottoms in late June and rises through July and August. This is the same cycle that accurately projected a weak second quarter. It may be wise to close out short positions at the end of the coming week.
