Don’t look for V shaped recovery here

It’s tempting to look for a fast recovery for a market blow-off like this that doesn’t have any obvious big economic drivers.   But it’s rare to see “V” shaped recoveries when fear gets this high.  I’m expecting the market will need to form a bottom here before there can be a sustained rally.   At least a couple more down days are probably in the works.  The only bullish factor I see right now is the high volume—there are buyers out there.
