    If we are to have runaway inflation, would not oil be consolidating for a sustained push higher?

    Looking at the chart of the oil market proxy, The United States Oil Fund LP ETF (NYSEARCA:USO), we see that inflation is nowhere to be found.

    In fact, just like the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEARCA:IWM), the USO is showing a rising wedge termination that is now proceeding lower.

    Our premise is and remains that we are experiencing a significant across-the-board trend change.

    As stated in the previous post on the IWM, be on guard for the "it's a buying opportunity" crowd. Here they are........

    The position that has been established in the Direxion Russell 2000 Bear 3X ETF (NYSEARCA:TZA) is action taken in response to the analysis that the next sustained major move is lower.

    Even so, anything can happen in the market. A good stop location for the position in TZA, would be in the 13.56 area (this week's low).

    Disclosure: The author is long TZA.

    Author’s reply » Good morning Krzysztof,


    You made a nice profit. It is good that you have 1/2 left.


    Today looks like a huge gap-higher open for TZA. My research says that this move might go for a long time (3 - 6 months), so I want to make sure I use the opportunity.


    I have my full position and will be looking to take more opportunities as they come.


    TZA may go as high as 16 before it retraces. Or, it may just keep going with no pull-back at all. That is the problem with big moves...........sometimes they just keep going and do not let anyone get in.


    Nice to hear from you. I hope that these updates are helping.

    Author’s reply » "Tu" being the familiar address in french. Otherwise it would be "vous" Am I right?


    The Latin used Tu..... or at least that what Shakespeare wrote. :-)


    Glad you liked the reference.


    USO is continuing on lower.

    Author’s reply » It is Latin.......... and is translated "And you also Brutus?"


    In the Shakespeare play Brutus was a close friend of Caesar.


    The article means that the oil sector is also turning lower and signalling that we may be in for deflation instead of inflation.


    Hope this helps.
