What a crazy start to 2016! Of course, it is no crazier than the 3rd quarter of 2015 so far, when we had our August crash followed by a slow September bounce that led into a mega-rally that closed our year off back at the highs.

The good news is we can call a bottom here (16,000) but the bad news is we're not likely to go anywhere from here and what goes for the Dow likely goes for the other indexes as well.

This morning we flipped positive on the indexes as well as on Natural Gas Futures (/NG) at $1.73 and Oil Futures (/CL) at $36. You can find those levels by checking out our morning Tweet, but we don't do those very often - nor do we always make free picks - it's just Christmas and we can afford to be generous.

60 points. That's the difference between where the S&P was Tuesday morning, when I warned "The Joke's on You if You are Buying this Rally" and where we are now.

I know the conventional wisdom is that, if we pretend China is not having a crisis for long enough, the crisis will go away but this is rapidly spilling over to other Asian economies and is now affecting Europe too.

China's $200Bn Manipulation Not Enough -- Now What?

The fact that Netflix (NFLX) rocketed back to $117 (we're short) and Tesla (TSLA) zoomed back to $248 and Amazon (AMZN) jumped back to $518 makes me think traders have learned NOTHING from the crash and are right back to overvaluing momentum stocks.
