The Best Position

With the post’s title I am speaking for me; a person who cannot possibly be a committed bull due to my idealist revulsion at what the bull market was built on, or a committed short, due to my idealist revulsion about what the bull market was built on. In other words, if they jam this thing upward I would be very bitter being short. I am simply and emotionally vulnerable in that respect. I know this because I have played that game in the past and I don’t like it.

So as has been noted in NFTRH for months and months now, through bearish and bullish phases alike, the “default position” is cash equivalents paying income (thank you Mr. Powell, stay the course). This allows me to maintain my calm and patience while seeing how the macro shakes out. The next big profit opportunity looks to be in the gold stocks, and while I have reason to believe they will not liquidate as in Q4 2008, the larger market’s condition could pressure them. So I sit, wait, slowly position and let this thing pay me each month. The chart obviously includes dividend reinvestment.
