A Correction is Due 
It is very interesting that Feds chose today to charge Goldman Sachs with fraud.  Timing is everything!  The latest report from OCC shows that Goldman Sachs still holds total $48.85 trillion of derivatives aganst its total $849 billion of assets.  That is over 57 times highly leveraged.  Goldman Sachs case is likely to increase calls for Wall Street reform.  Today the DWC (Dow Jones Wilshire 5000 Composite Index) is derailed from its 10-week-old uptrend channel defined by two yellow lines.  The broad market could run into a correction wave inside the 3-month uptrend channel defined by two pink lines.  Currently the market is in the downtrend zone from the upper pink channel line towards the lower pink channel line. The magnitude of this potential correction is projected around 8%.
