If the buying and selling threads are accurate guage of the sentiment in this forum, people here in this forum feel like today is just a dip and a buying opportunity.

Long term, it is a dip and a buying opportunity. Whenever you see forced selling you can assume there will be some opportunities.

In the short term, the buying activity on this forum suggests there is still room to drop further.

Definitely does not look like a bottom.  Bought some but still at almost half cash (thanks to some wise men here for the timing lessons)

Goldman just crushed estimates and it's down like 2.5% pre-market. This really doesn't look like some small temporary dip. It's something else this time.

How can you tell the difference?

It's not hard to tell when the market is no longer in dip mode.  HPQ and EBAY both announced spin-offs, but the stocks are well below the announcement prices.  Stocks beating earnings do not matter.  Big buyback announcement do not matter.

This is just another big unwind of too much leverage in equities.  It will finish when people throw in the towel and realize if they were wrong about interest rates, they're probably wrong about stocks too.
