Rotation

For months on end we have seen a rotation out of technology and into consumer staples and other defensive sectors. Today, we are seeing technology leading and staples lagging. That is quite unusual for a big down day. This is a small incremental positive.

WTF happened today

The EU reached an agreement with Greece on an austerity plan. The weird

leaning the wrong way.

There was a lot of call buying heading into the Fed announcement and the
bulls were caught leaning the wrong way. Today the opposite happened. This
market does seem bipolar.
