  • The Fed Won't Change Its Language? REALLY!? [View article]
    Hate to say all this; but I'm thinking we don't sell off because there is a tremendous number of "trapped shorts / flats" out there, trying to short on valuation alone.

    Hence we don't correct. I think as we get closer to year end; fundies start to panic and initiate a parabolic up move -- maybe to 2300 spx and 5000 - 5200 nasdaq, the 2000 highs.....gotta get the ton of shorts out! -- Before we can sell-off.

    Also the Fed wants a sky - high market before midterms....just am not seeing this big correction.

    Forget the sentiment numbers = useless. EVERYONE STILL IS A BEAR ---- believes its all a hoax, bubble, 2008 around the corner, deep deep down. NO ONE is all - in -- "emotionally".

    That has to change before, and then maybe we get a real euphoric top. Right now --- nobody cares. No one watches CNBC. No volumes.

    Sound like Euphoria?

    Stephen, much as I,d like to see and trade that, name me one time we've had a major correction without the Fed signaling tightening, or a major crisis -- aka 2011 Europe.

    I'm not seeing it. I think we just get more expensive.

    And I see no chance of a hawkish Janet Yellen, until forced.

    Must be short. It is irritating when one watches the junk companies continue to squeeze due to forever free cash.

    Buy commodities.

    Good luck waiting for that day. Market continues to be like a whiny 4 year old only interested in the next candy dose. The combination of that dependence and perpetually on again, sluggish economic data, is difficult to manage.

  • Is A Big Move In Stocks Coming Soon? [View article]
    Chris,

    I'll tell you what I notice. This market is incredibly difficult to handicap. Reasonable value stocks, like some in energy, just seem to get weaker and weaker, or struggle to rally, and the reason is -- there is minimal short exposure in them.

    On the other hand, anything with heavy short exposure for fundamental reasons, always seems to rip on days like this, and lead the market. Eg stocks like (TCS) and (FRSH) -- no position in either -- just ripping lately. Never profitable weak companies.

    It's a difficult market when we continue to have free cash and weak economies, worldwide. And I'm currently long -- but how does one maintain confidence in such an environment?

  • Not Only Did I Sell Everything In My Roth IRA, But I Also Went Semi-Short [View article]
    At 21 ....put all your Roth in China and India, let's revisit in 10 years.

    I'll bet both will outperform the SPX by miles and miles in the years ahead.

    Long Both.

    Agree, no chance of a hawkish statement. Sure makes emerging markets look good to me, as well.

  • Seadrill extends losses as concerns over Russia, dividend grow [View news story]
    Maybe insiders know the dividend will be cut.

    Stocks move ahead of news. If one cannot stomach this possibility one shouldn't be invested.

  • Turn The Lose-Lose Economic War With Russia Into Trading Profits [View article]
    It's all priced in, and IMO deep pocketed money is buying Russia here, and doesn't care about new headlines. Hence the index won't make a new low.

    I'm taking the long view, long RSXJ, long MBT.

    Don't look for any reasonable offer on a pullback in sanctions.
