Consider Where the Real Pain Is

Just take a step back and consider, objectively, how many seasoned Wall Street veterans are bullish on bonds for any number of reasons. First and foremost, there are those who believe an imminent credit event is upon us, and therefore there will be a scramble into Treasuries as The Fed inevitably cuts rates to cope with the crisis. Others see...

We've Got Ourselves Some Twin Peaks

The much ballyhooed "July breakout" in stocks saw one of the most ostentatious displays of arrogance, hubris, and outright obnoxious behavior I can recall from bulls since early-2021. But even back then, early-2021 was much more about pressing for one more good "YOLO" trade as opposed to last month where the rallying cry centered around...

Easy There on Chasing Old Warren This Time Around

Headlines are swirling with the latest disclosure from Berkshire  that Buffett has bought into three homebuilders: DHI LEN and NVR. There are a few ways to look at these new bets, with perhaps them being hedges for the home remodeling businesses already owns which have been slowing date of late. After all, if new supply of homes is the issue,...

You Might Have Forgotten, But the Market Did Not

We can go back sixteen years, to the infamous 2007 bull market top, and the regional banking sector ETF (KRE, below on the monthly chart) will show a distinct sensitivity to the $50 (horizontal light blue line) area which will surely be mocked by many new age traders in the market as being a kind of antiquated way of looking at things.  And,...

I Feel Sorry for Your Thesis

A clip of Jerome Powell giving testimony  on Capitol Hill has been making the rounds on Twitter of late. In the clip, he responds to a, "why does The Fed have a 2% inflation target, anyway?" question unimpressively, to say the least. If nothing else, it drives home the point about just how clueless these Central Bankers truly are and how...

Summer Always Turns Into Hurricane Season

We live in a lower trust society nowadays, and perhaps that means a lower trust market, too. In fact, I am quite sure that is the case, where every bit of data, such as this morning's CPI print, and every market machination is met with a skeptical eye of conspiracy by a not-insignificant group of market players and pundits.  Such is life,...

I Wasn't Joking About the South Sea Bubble

I have been doing this for a long time now; Writing about markets in full public view on a daily basis for nearly fifteen years.  So when I pen a piece like I did here on July 31st of this year,  comparing the long-term parabolic charts of AAPL NVDA to the Dutch Tulip Mania, the South Sea Bubble, John Law and the Mississippi Stock Bubble, and...

We're Moving to a Higher Plane

Dare I say, the era of low volatility is over.  With volatility sellers as cocky as I have ever seen them, to dovetail mega cap tech bulls, the stage is set for a nasty volatility unwind higher. To be sure, this entire process has taken much longer than I ever anticipated. However, nothing has changed the underlying picture which is why I...

Anyone who has traded natural gas over the years, be it the commodity futures contract themselves or the various ETFs, knows how uniquely tricky it can be insofar as various head-fakes and traps.  However, with the energy complex catching a strong bid during the middle portion of this summer, namely crude and gasoline futures, it is certainly...
