Hello Everyone,

I would like opinions of knowledgeable retirees who can unemotionally (hopefully) look at market indicators (things like large funds and companies' accumulation/distribution of stocks) and judge whether or not the market is heading into a "bear" situation.

I read in Investor's Business Daily an article saying something about watching whether the Dow 30 was being dumped or bought. They rate it A through D or E -- A is best (a lot of buying), D or E is worst (lots of selling). The more selling, the more chance of a bear market.

Apparently mutual funds and large companies own 80-some percent of the whole market, so therefore if they start "dumping" they actually bring on the bear market. Does anyone know what I'm trying to say? Got any ideas? Also, where can I find information? I've got DailyGraphs for a month.
