Watch for Potential Bear Flags Formation

We saw the high volume sell-off in the markets last week. So what's next? I believe the next few days will see consolidation or some retracement of the sell-off, so now is not the time to go short or buy put options. I would watch the following sectors for potential bear flags formation in this coming week:


Here's a few charts to show the near vertical down move accompanied by high volume- characteristics of potential bear flags:

Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM)

DryShips Inc. (NASDAQ:DRYS)

Peabody Energy Corporation (NYSE:BTU)

Exelon Corporation (NYSE:EXC)

Quite a quiet week ahead in terms of economic news.

Tue: Pending Home Sales, Wholesale Inventories

Thurs: Initial Claims, Trade Balance, Treasury Budget

PPI, Retail Sales, Business Inventories, Michigan Sentiment
