Reminder: It's Still a New Regime

After a dramatic upside reversal and some follow-through higher today it is quite easy to assume the worst is behind us in terms of the Nasdaq and growth stock selloff. However, you will notice that even into this relief rally we have IGV XBI all lagging noticeably, with names like DKNG PENN actually red as I write this. True, they may be...

I Doubt This is the Last of General Winter

This morning's sizable opening gap down was enough to get me to lock in giant in some of my bearish bets with Members, be it short TSLA and short semis, as well as a long wheat trade. Stocks actually look to have printed session lows right on the opening print, which is something we have seen quite a bit since March 2020, actually, although all...

As Far as Markets Go: Russia is a MacGuffin

MacGuffin : In fiction, a MacGuffin is an object, device, or event that is necessary to the plot and the motivation of the characters, but insignificant, unimportant, or irrelevant in itself. About a week ago I locked in my short on Treasuries (a bet on higher rates) as I surmised with Members that bonds could easily stage a bit of a relief...

Stop Trying So Hard To Make Your Case

Speaking from personal experience in my younger, more brazen days, eager bulls would probably be best served by not trying so hard to make their case for an imminent and major market bottom--At least the type of imminent rally which is worth getting behind with significant financial and emotional capital. And, make no mistake, both are precious...

Futility in Trading the News

“Never mistake activity for achievement.” –John Wooden In this era of 24/7 news where even using social media to tweet out a headline seems obsolete just a few seconds later, it is worth remembering the analogy that the market is equivalent to being the world's largest open book exam. Back in my law school days, virtually all of the final...

Symbolic Value

Headed into a three-day weekend (markets are closed on Monday in observance of George Washington's birthday, or President's Day) we have some early toggling between green and red across most equities. The latest earnings disasters, like ROKU and RDFN, did not initially weigh down stocks as the overnight pop in futures was hopeful that...

Sentiment and the Options Market: Golden Disrespect

Quick note as we head into the bell of one of the more fascinating sessions in a while, what with all of the cross-currents between asset classes. The buy volume in gold and her miners is truly something to behold into this breakout. I would actually put in on par with the August 1982 breakout in equities as a group, insofar as the amount of...

Listen to the Right Noise

Last November 4th, 2021, with the Nasdaq's QQQ ETF near $400 and GDX at $32 (the ETF for senior gold miners)  I wrote this piece noting that the most heinous-sounding pair trade in the world at the time may very well prove to be the smart one. Long GDX and short QQQ was the thinking, as many factors were slowly starting to align in favor of...
