Bursting Biotech Bubble Bounce Fades Fourth Day In A Row

Tyler Durden's picture


It's deja vu all over again in Biotech bubble land. For the 4th day in a row, and opening salvo of hope-fueled buying has faded quickly into a sea of red-faced selling as The Nasdaq Biotech Index holds down 13% from the highs at is 100-day-moving-average. Will 4th time be the charm for the revival of the bubble? or is today the break?

It's probably because biotech companies finally realized that any product developments and potential profits are for naught due to ObummerCare not covering anything.

Most biotech companies are developing technologies that do not work or serve no purpose. It is another version of Wall St. shoveling money to their cronie buddies keeping them in a job. Shame old shit, another sector.

'No brainer' is what you would have to be to buy the stock.

Looking at a 5 year chart of that index, it has a long way to go down.

All that means is that the FED's software is wasting fiat electrons buying up the biohazards as the Elite dump shares into the FED's toxic asset black hole.

It's becoming pretty apparent that one of the biggies on the Nasdaq is going to warn on earnings (might be a few). The manufactured news we had today would have usually sent us up 50-60 points. Every rally is being sold in tech land

NAZ getting a little dicey here. Three days in a row testing the 50dma. Bounced last two at exactly EU closing time. Will today be a three-peat? Need I even ask??
