We wondered in a post this morning whether USD or some anti-USD markets were off base as all items were firm. Answer: Uncle Buck had stepped off sides and afoul of the Powell rate jawbone. While not a bull by any means beyond the bounce situation, I am long the 3 items in the lower panels. I was already long ACXW and AAXJ, and added … Continue reading Who Was Lying?
You partying? Wayne? You? Well, after expecting a bounce for an annoyingly long while the fledgling thing we had going before Mr. Powell’s jawbone was finally rammed home today. A world full of endorphin releasing Waynes and Garths are in full sentiment relief mode. Perfect. But, this… There has definitely been some short-term over bearish sentiment buildup that needed to be addressed and so the … Continue reading Garth!

The update about the Baltic Dry index (BDI) brought about a couple of responses from learned subscribers. Subscriber A noted that a lot of shipping activity is happening ahead of the next Tariff increase and that is an excellent point. Subscriber B noted that we are in a post-bubble contraction and (my words) inflation is not going to carry the day. Rather, he believes a … Continue reading NFTRH; Update to the Update
A low priority update on a short position I just took. The setup looked good enough to use as a chart study, if nothing else. I am not an accomplished short seller and cash continues to be the favored method of playing bearish markets, so there are your caveats. PYPL has had a sharp bounce back to the SMA 200, where I shorted it. I’ll … Continue reading NFTRH+; Short Setup on a High Profile US Stock
The simplest update we’ve ever had. An update on Nov. 26 talked about how Treasury yields are still set up bullish on the big picture and how inflation ain’t dead yet. A public post this morning talks about how global stocks have not buckled under to the strong USD (at least not yet). Now let’s also add to the mix the Baltic Dry Index which, … Continue reading NFTRH; One Simple Picture of Positive Divergence for Commodities & Global Markets (high priority)
USD (UUP) is firm, as we all know. Deflation is coming, as we all (think) we know. But certain global markets that have been pressured by the strong USD are not buying the USD breakout; at least not yet. They have been firm over the last week and in the cases of EM and Asia, are grappling with the 50 day moving averages. Is this … Continue reading Who’s Lying, Uncle Buck or Those Counter to It?
The market bounce scenario has been on my radar longer than has been convenient for my own investing/trading. But that’s the way corrections and reactions often go I guess. At first it was taking the form of a potential short-term Inverted Head & Shoulders pattern, which would have theoretically targeted around the 3000 area on SPX. That would have obviously compromised the longer-term bear view. … Continue reading Why a Bounce?
