August 13, 2007: Calling the top of the equities and citing critical lower supports
Back in early August of 2007 very few folks had a sense that the equity markets could be in serious trouble. Alan Rohrbach appeared on prominent early morning CNBC show Squawk Box at the top of the week cautioning that equity markets might fall sharply and the Fed would need to provide emergency intervention; which it needed to do exactly three days later.
He also pointed out the psychological and technical importance of DJIA 11,750 area, which proved so telling as support in the winter of 2007-2008, and such critical resistance after failing below it in June 2008.
