Buy the cannons, sell the trumpets?

Mid-week market update: The financier Nathan Rothschild was said to have coined the phrase, “Buy on the sound of cannons, sell on the sound of trumpets”. After the New York market closed last night, the news flashed across the wire that Iran had launched missile strikes at Iraqi bases housing American and Coalition military personnel. Equity futures cratered as much as -1.6%, but by the time the dust settled, the market had opened in the green on Wednesday. Have we had a cannons and...

Is the market melting up?

Mid-week market update: I am leaving on a seasonal family vacation tomorrow, so posting will be lighter than usual. While the usual weekend publications will continue, tactical market interpretations are problematical this time of year when liquidity is low. However, here are some guidelines on how to think about the stock market for the remainder of 2019. Recently, there have been more voices calling for a market melt-up. Bloomberg reported that BAML strategist Michael Hartnett called for...

Here comes the beta chase

Mid-week market update: Notwithstanding any issues traders may have with short-term volatility, the market is setting up for a year-end beta chase Santa Claus rally. After a prolong period of defensive posturing, equity fund flows are turning strongly positive again.  As the TD-Ameritrade IMX shows, retail positioning is still underweight, and the scope for more buying into year-end and 2020 is still significant.  Macro Charts also pointed out that hedge funds are now in a FOMO...

Short-term risks are rising

Mid-week market update: Even though I remain constructive on the intermediate term market outlook, short-term risks are rising.

A correction in price, or time?

Mid-week market update: What to make of today’s market? It is obviously overbought. The 14-day RSI is skirting the 70 level, which defines an overbought condition and that has been the reading at which past advances have temporarily stalled. Arguably, the 5-day RSI is flashing a series of “good overbought” conditions indicating strong price momentum, though it did signal a minor bearish divergence.  Neither Trump’s speech yesterday nor Powell’s testimony today revealed much new...
