  • S&P 500: The Perfect Short [View article]
    agree it will retreat to lower levels, but is this the high or do they push it seasonally higher into May before the big dip to lower lows around/after the election in november? And if SPY does break down to 16-1700 by that time, we can be sure the Fed will be there with another round of QE... that will be your commodity run cue

    I will look to short indexes soon, prob next week for best prices, and go long before year end for a few months.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: What Do Higher U.S. Interest Rates Mean For Financial Markets? [View article]
    No recession in sight for Wall st! Main street however is not doing well, still prefer to actually talk to people in my travels vs a financial summation of the economy...

    Things are precarious, held together by a massive bubble in real estate, continued centralization of corporate monopolies, and massive govt subsidies for health, tech, military etc

    cant wait to break that 20 trillion debt, only a few more years!

  • The 'Low Housing Inventory' Myth [View article]
    its bad and getting worse, look at rents in many markets nationwide, where its sucking up to 50% of household income. We need to reign in speculation in housing, leave that to stocks, tax second homes, rental properties, vacation rentals etc, use this income to subsidize low cost housing construction.
    If Fed really wanted to support home ownership, it would subsidize 1% interest for first time home buyers

  • Take A Broader View Than The Fed [View article]

  • What Does A Stock Market Bottom Look Like? [View article]
    I like the general theory of an extended chop followed by a retest. However, coming off such a historic run and mkt bubble, we may need to wait a bit before a decent rally comes (multi-month). The mkt definitely has the feel that people want out, probably exacerbated by the constant and overnight reversals lower.
    China will also play a role, looks like they will be tightening up for a while longer.

    Plan is to buy November/December for seasonal rally Jan-May at this point, no reason to jump in too soon here

  • Get Ready For The Second Round Of The Market Downturn [View article]
    One of the commentators had it most accurate, in that we are forming a head and shoulders pattern. However, we did violate October 2014 low which is bearish and a sign new lows will come. Expect a retest of recent lows soon, they should hold for a while, and we will probably bounce around in this lower channel, maybe seasonal rally in January - April to attempt at upper resistance, then fall apart to new lows 1600 SPY late '16 early '17 ..MY PLAN nothing else

  • Is China Getting Hit With THE BIG ONE? [View article]
    the risk is from the citizens seeing the party members loot the treasury and try to jump ship while they are supposed to work in a factory or risk their savings in stocks to play catchup... that wont last too long...

  • The Case For A 300-500 Point Correction In The S&P 500 - And Still A 'Secular Bull' [View article]
    good article/conversation... as a position trader, I feel its better to be right a week or month at a time in this environment... back in early '09 it was different, one could go all in knowing that a fire sale was happening, now, u have to do your research on the "value" plays, MU GM AAL INTC BAC BHP MOS and others trading at low P/E or price/book levels. ONe also doesnt want to be bottom picking in a market that is acting toppy... for myself I am bottom picking VXX plays this week and SPY short exposure based on the assumption that China, Europe, Russia, Mid East and other threats to mkt will continue to push $$ into risk averse assets.
    If this works out, I will be covering before Jackson Hole and play up to Fed meeting in Sept, then betting down into mid December when funds are balancing their year end books
