with CPI out of the way - finally continuing to price in the blowout Q1 earnings...? ...or simply continuing recent yield rise reversal..?  ..was it Minerd who saw the 10 year below 1% in H2? - can't remember right now...

Should be a pullback or a sideways price movement of some degree next few weeks, purely based on the 2RSI being overbought on the WEEKLY chart


DAILY chart suggests price pullback of some degree based on Indicator alone, as its made a bearish reversal - a nice scenario would be small few days pullback in price of a minor amount, then rally and then you'd have the DAILY RSI in the overbought zone twice whilst the WEEKLY is overbought, that would give rise to a half decent pullback of some degree into July

Still waiting for the correction - As mentioned above this should be within the next few weeks, seen as we're working off the WEEKLY chart

WEEKLY chart:


DAILY chart:

RSI is over extended in the OB zone - this does not mean price will fall - BUT at some point the WEEKLY chart is going to correct which should bring a correction on both charts of some degree - obviously the daily chart will register first

Deep corrections open up other opportunities, a minor bull market correction allows you to get in on the trend at cheaper prices

presumably, if someone decided after the morning action to get out of some very large positions successively, and buys a few bits back between sales to keep prices within an acceptable range, charts would look very much like this...:

Agree.  Last earnings season didn't lift NDX at all, a small correction came shortly after it was out of the way, followed by a rally - part of the narrative was support for growth stocks by lower discount rates..:


that obviously wasn't dominating enough yesterday to keep NDX in the green - but could well explain its out-performance (like last week).


..after several hypothesis about bond market action driven by positioning (short squeeze), other technical factors and pricing in/out of policy mistakes had been flowing around since the last dot plot, more recently the moves are frequently attributed to growth worries in mainstream media...

trying to piece these and other mosaic bits together (highly subjectively):  economic growth worries may be priced in sufficiently for now in markets like NKY and Dax (also the SPX drawdown was already larger than the previous one).  NDX may have been held up by the longer (secular) trend and the characteristics of its main members as "new defensives" established since the outbreak.  This view would imply more likely a rebound (following Dax and NKY today).  Earnings season playing out similarly to last time (blowout numbers unable to give much positive impulse) seems unlikely - that would simply be too easy IMHO, plus mentioned yield moves, plus less inflation worries (not least due to recent corrections in  commodities like lumber, oil...) give a very different backdrop...

strong rebound in last half hour of trading yesterday points to BTFP having already started - could quickly lead to FOMO kicking in again...

an alternative view would be that it was simply more idiosyncratic moves (NVIDIA, Moderna, Tesla) providing relative support yesterday

(personally, am currently not trading real money, but in demo and pending social trading account currently positioned for the former) 

guess relevant wildcards are of course neg. earnings surprises and a crypto crash... amongst others

FANGs reported last week July '20 and  NQ roared almost 20% in the following 5 weeks  . Outside the bounces of march '20 covid lows and Xmas '18 this aug'21 rally is the best 5 week nasdaq rally since 2009 lows    Markets have no memory so it means little 12 months on   .

if that's not gonna turn into a 200-point min rally into the close, I'll voluntarily buy 0.01 BTC as soon as it becomes eligible for demo accounts...


Given 3 of the top 5 largest US stocks reported at close some volatility is a given no doubt

    • You are a total Richard lol.  What a waste of space you are. Go play with your dolls you Troll!
    • NOT TODAY MOTHERF*&^%R !!!  Today was a good day ! No not just  trading-wise but in general. At the pharmacy,  we had  severe staff shortages , it was all available hands on deck for 10 hours straight !  Our focus was getting all the necessary work done to push the business forward and achieve our retail  health service targets and we blew it out of the water!  Focus is a very powerful tool. Being able to ignore the noise and zero in on what is important has served me very well today.  Yesterday I posted this on twitter      It is one of the many tools I use daily when analysing the markets for opportunities. Understanding this dynamic served me very well today even in the midst of the #Evergrande and UK #Energy crisis, I was able to tune out the noise and focus on what the market was actually saying. After 6 solid months of getting my head down to fine tune my process and learn new ways of thinking about markets, Things are starting to look much clearer. But , thats in the past.  Now that we have had the "bounce", now what ???? Well, after Jerome's shindig today, it is quite evident that he doesn't want to tighten policy into an economic slowdown. Where does that leave us ???? I don't know.  But what I do know is that I am observing the same occurrences across major macro assets....i.e. returns are approaching the top end of their respective ranges. This means .....DO NOT CHASE !! We are still in the midst of a slowdown in industrial production with input prices rising like there is no tomorrow. Here are the returns of the SP500 as of close today.    And the FTSE     The DOW       I dunno about you but...... the risk reward is not worth it from here. I suspect,  it is  likely we experience some deceleration in returns from here. How far ? I dunno.  Perhaps we saw the early stages of that by close today? Time will tell. What I can do for now is do what the math says and reduce some risk. Kai from https://www.macrotechnicals.com/   has also made some interesting observations in the US 10yr rate. In his recent post he wrote  " However, US 10s yields keep pushing upwards and testing 1.35/1.38 zone. Ok, NFIB, NY empire, Philly Fed all saw a positive rebound. Or the market is playing a new reflation theme/ super taper expectations ?" .      I think he has a point here.  In rate of change terms, the global economy could reaccelerate between Q4 2021 to Q2 2022. Given that there is potentially a new stimulus package in the works . Also, throw in the likelihood of the CCP stepping in to save the Chinese economy from a potentially precarious position ( Evergrande etc)   Perhaps  the treasury market is picking this up now ?? It is worth keeping an eye on for sure. Check out his full post. The man knows his stuff. I was lucky and fortunate enough to pick his brains a few months ago when trying to fine tune my process check him out or reach out to him on twitter on  https://twitter.com/MacroTechnicals.  Thats all my brain can muster for now I've had two double gins hehe . It's another brutal day at the pharmacy tomorrow but I am sure my team and I will smash it. Gotta get some sleep. Take care guys... l8trz!! CA   PS;  If you guys like gin you need to try Hendricks...... phoar... that **** is good!! Oh and don't forget to get a flu jab !! If you are over 50,  its free!!  
    • Oh 'The Great Reset' is back to the table.  Have you run out of Covid related propaganda that you are now linking everything to an evil master plan to control us in darkness? Well, you have done it before, so I believe you are doing the same now. The end is near... Prepare your tin foil hats.   Davos' boys had everything planned for two years and everything was part of a diabolical plan that will lead us to the abysm.
