Dip buyers remain in place. Volume continues to be lackluster and market participation modest. (I am fearful of how dull the market will be this summer). Bond prices don't appear to "want to rally" (and drop in yields) even in the face of disappointing domestic data, consistent with my view that the 10-year U.S. note yield is discounting only about +1.25% real GDP. Equity-market participants remain indifferent to exogenous events, like the decaying Greek economic outlook.  I see no reason to alter the "short the rips, buy the dips" strategy as a framework for trading opportunistically over the near term. I see no reason to adjust my (non-self-confident) view that at current levels the market risk doesn't support the reward. I see no reason why anyone should project a self-confident view given the market without memory from day to day. There remains too little "I don't know." Accordingly, it seems essential to size positions (smaller than usual) properly. With today's incremental shorts, I plan to end the day in a modest net short position.
