RealMoney columnist Helene Meisler asked rhetorically in an article where her readers thought we are in the equity sentiment cycle. She concluded that the market is in the “subtle warning” phase, though she would allow that the “overt warning” phase was also possible.

I agree. This retreat is acting like the start of a major pullback. The S&P 500 recently violated its 50 day moving average (dma).
