Now that was quite the kick in the pants. The premarket looked good, and it was a gorgeous follow through all day. The Dow was up 115, NASDAQ 21, and the S&P almost 15. You would almost think that times were good!

Last week’s action was concerning on the heels of the 2/27 sell off. But what are we to make of this? Bottom feeding, vultures or stupidity?
