I don't think it will stay under 20 for much longer.

It would make sense for the bulls to take profit today. However, I would have to concur with Tim Knight that we are presently in a danger zone where the market can tip either way. One clear indication that might work in favor of the bears is the lack of volume.

Just an "average" volume doesn't cut it when it comes to breaking out above such an important technical pattern as the inverted head and shoulders we see before us.

Another idiotic phenomenon that I've noticed alot these days is how the bulls are pushing the market up during lunch time on volume that's thinner than air. This would obviously be exploited further by big institutions when the afternoon session kicks in.

So much for relying on free quotes. **wink wink**

At any rate, there are many ways to minimize ure losses. Obviously, the best way to cut ure losses is to sell the loser outright. But if ure a proud member from the land of the timid (no offense meant), then you can hedge ure position by either buying the option or, should you have enough capital, pair-trade. Both of these strategies have their pros and cons. Whereas options only require a small premium (depending on the contract size), pair-trading requires a substantial sum of money. However, with pair-trading, you need not worry about losing the premium due to time decay as you would with options.
