Meredith Whitney downgrades Goldman Sachs

Her rationale was the weak equity markets. Weak? You could be printing money in this market.

At least she did it at an opportune time. The dollar has rallied to a level, that it can weaken again, oil has fallen without a rally, some tech stocks are now extended, and some shorts will think that the new SEC rules on short selling may not be renewed.

And the bulls have thrown a lot of firepower. Yesterday WYNN was the perfect stock that reflected this market. It was just too extended. JP Morgan downgraded it today.

But that's what we need. We need a little churn, and a pullback to set up ourselves for option expiration!
