The Fed killed Fundamentals trading and created a massive Bond bubble that will crash horribly

In the perennial argument of technicals vs fundamentals vs anything else you care to use to make an argument for your trading the one thing often forgotten is that indicators, trading methods and investment strategies as well as economic theories do not work all of the time because circumstances change.  For example the usual advice given by professionals to long term investors is to drip feed in investments and thereby smooth out the peaks and troughs.  That is fine in a bull market but not so smart in a raging bear market.

 

The following article illustrates the problem we face today in terms of using fundamentals (data).  The old adage "lies, **** lies and statistics" can perhaps be amended to end with economic data, especially in the context of how it is being used.  And it is all thanks to the Fed.  To be long term successful in trading and investing you have to recognise when the game has changed.

    • @Caseynotesthanks for the reply. How do I know if I am trading at DMA platform or any other.       
    • Hi, all brokers are market makers to some extent. If you are trading on the Direct Market Access (DMA) platform then you are dealing on the exchange through IG but if using any other platform then IG looks to match those trades inhouse matching shorts to longs. Any excess they hedge on the exchange themselves.  So IG aren't taking the other side of your trade, they are covered whether you win or lose and they make on the spread from both parties. If they need to hedge they still win because they get a better spread than what they pass on to you.  
    • Err, I've had all my real vaccines, the ones that completed safety trials, have also had special vaxxes when had to present proof when travelling to a country were there were dangerous diseases present, no problem. But experimental gene therapy that has no medium or long term risk data for a disease that, according to the FDA, has just a 1 in 250,000 risk, and needing to present proof to go to a restaurant or club in my home town - no, this is not about a virus.   Note that the FDA officials that the Biden admin pressured into giving early FDA approval for these vaxxes both resigned. FDA panel just voted 16-3 AGAINST approving the boosters This slide was shown at their meeting.
