Shaky confidence, nervous sentiment!

Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing. - Warren Buffett.

Thursday’s thrashing of the bulls has increased the risks, at least in the short term, as investor confidence has been shaken. The sharp selloff this week has dealt a short-term blow to the sentiment after last week’s smart recovery. The decay in the Small-Caps and Mid-Caps has spread to the Large Caps as well. Margin calls’ cascading effect has been another culprit, especially on the non-index counters.
