    by , 05-15-2011 at 05:02 PM (Coolhand's Market Analysis)
    There's no shortage of media headlines that are pointing out possible trouble ahead for the market. And many technical indicators certainly suggest the same. But is this another one of those walks up to the precipice simply to shake weak hands? Let's take a look at how we're allocated for the new week and whether we're buying into the fear.
