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.

    • Great post... Inflation is less transient than central bankers hope. The current result is transient (they hope) stagflation. Reflationary trends are more likely than not, though the  general market correction that is being deferred once more, is likely over due come Q1 22....more likely before.  As for your clever strategy, respect. As a simple Oil and gas trader I judge different metrics (like actual physical supply, storage and expected and real demand) for example. Plus order flow is useful. Have a great day trading all. Finally getting round to booking some holiday time that's not in the UK...which is a good sign..  
    • In the news; - oh dear never mind, it's all good data;  'A Turkish Prof, Zafer Kurugöl has said on TV that they have "accidentally" vaccinated babies with covid vax (adult dosage) and will publish the results (of their accidental experiment). He was also member of the Scientific Committee at Pfizer's Scientific Research Competition.' Professore Notte Botta @note_bot_ Pfizer’in Bilimsel Araştırmaya ve Genç Araştırmacılara Desteği Devam Ediyor | Pfizer Türkiye     'Newly reported deaths in Hawaii have risen 1,740% in the past two months despite one of the longest mask mandates in the world & overwhelming compliance…so I have to ask once again why Ron DeSantis did not mandate double masking & spend more time promoting vaccinations there.'  IM @ianmSC         Cases in South Korea have been at record high levels for nearly 3 months now despite 99% mask compliance, mask mandates and fines for non-compliance, so it’s always nice to hear politicians and experts keep pushing more mask mandates & forcing masks on 2 year olds.  IM @ianmSC   .
