CNBC The Call Behind the Selloff
Highlights from this interview include:
* Consumption levels are low and will continue to trend downward over the foreseeable future. Individuals who are unemployed or worry they will become unemployed are unlikely to increase consumption, and thus current spending habits will further deteriorate the balance sheets of businesses large and small.
* Aggressive investors should continue to seek out the leaders: emerging markets, financials, small cap growth and technology.
* September will likely witness the end of the rally. We are pointing one foot toward the exit door and will consider lower support levels breached when the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls below 8,800.
