That's what I mean when I say I'd sell ASAP after the RS and buy back in closer to the bottom. In the short term, recent OTC reverse splits I've seen have resulted in cratering price. I'd still want to reinvest in the companies if the fundamentals were still there. (But holding long through a bear run reduces liquidity/profits since that money is just stuck.) In a bearish and uncertain economy, RS seems to be a gold mine for bears.
