    WHAT CAUSES RECESSIONS?

    Recessions are NOT problems to be solved. We are not 'doing something wrong'. Recessions are somethings that happen. But not somethings that happen because we have done something wrong.

    Our whole approach to life that it is supposed to be successful, happy, fruitful, growing ALL THE TIME -- this premise IS the problem. We think we can block out the dark side by changing our behavior, that the dark side, the receding side, the failure side, is our fault -- and that we MUST fix it in order to avoid tragedy, failure, loss, sorrow, depression.

    But recessions are built in to the system. Failure is built-in to the system. Nights are built-in to the system.

    We have to endure the non-growth periods of our lives, the devolutionary times of our life, and learn how to survive sorrow when we are in sorrow. It is not our collective or individual fault that recessions arrive; it is not that we did something wrong. It is not our fault that night arrives, and the productive time passes. We CANNOT CORRECT IT. It comes; it is. Recessions are built-in, like Winter is built-in.

    All the self-blame, and self-hate, associated with the 'dying of the light' (to quote Dylan Thomas) is no one's fault. When one is in the light, he should realize that most of his success is not his own, but is the Light's success. And when he's in the dark, he should try to realize that most of his failings are not due to himself, the mistakes he has made, but are due to the darkness. The light and the darkness are periods to experience, from which to learn, and through which to progress with expanded understanding.

    We don't like to think this way -- it is anti-Western. We like to think that all our success is because of our hard work, or our genius. The other side of that is that failure is caused by someone's inability to be a success.

    Failure and success in life seem to come and go like light itself; like day and night. Many of the people we might all agree are true success stories are, also, at the same time, massive failure stories: Michael Jackson is the most obvious example of this, but there are many others. Marilyn Monroe. Richard Nixon. Dylan Thomas himself.

    Success and failure is interwoven in our lives so intricately it becomes impossible to tell where each of these dual categories begins and then leaves off.

    What causes recessions? Time does.

    TRADING SIGNALS

    Last week we introduced a trading system that we call M2F PT LB Jumbo. We suggested traders short ENZN, Enzon Pharmaceuticals. That position is up 5.82% currently.

    We update this portfolio today in our post.

    We have a couple new suggestions based on this trading system: SHORT OCN, Ocwen Financial; trade long HCG.TO, Home Capital Growth, Canada. Here are those charts, as well as an updated chart on ENZN. The OCN signal is for tomorrow; we are a day late on the HCG.TO buy signal. This should not be significant.

    Is the rally we have been seeing a real rally? We are getting signals on both side of the aisle lately. It will be interesting to see how the markets react to the Fed's taking the baby-wheels of the Wall Street bike, ending QE. Today saw a rally dissipate when the Fed announced the end of QE, finally. Then there was a small rally at the end of the day.

    We have two other trading systems that are beginning to unearth short-sell signals for us. This makes us somewhat cautious on the long side of this rally. Here are the signals.

    One of my favorite shorts on this list is CAT, Caterpillar, which has been losing revenue for the last four years, and buying back stock to make it look better than it is (many companies have been doing this, and IBM continues to do MORE of it).

    The trading system that is suggesting shorting CAT -- CGTS 112 Hybrid, 3A -- has traded this stock successfully in the past.

    We are in overbought range now, as stocks have bounced back from the recently stalled correction.

    Tomorrow will tell us something. Everyone knows the FED has left the table, in terms of QE. I could feel the FED (Plunge-Protection Team) buying stocks at the end of the day today. And I'm sure they are not going to back away from the table entirely. They still have ways to influence markets behind closed doors.

    It will be interesting to watch.

    Best luck trading,

  • CGTS Trade Of The Day: Short ENZN, ENZON PHARMACEUTICAL

    We want to introduce a new trading system, and highlight a shortsell trade today in ENZN, ENZON PARMACEUTICAL.

    We use the strange name for this trading system: M2F PT Jumbo. Here is a look at this portfolio in recent trading:

  • IS THIS RALLY REAL? MAYBE. COVER SHORTS ON CAT, CGW, GRS: DON'T GO LONG.

    I really don't believe in the resurrection of CAT. David Stockman focuses on CAT in this article, "Shrinking is the New Growth; CAT Did It Through Buybacks, Not Sales":

    davidstockmanscontracorner.com/shrinking.../

    We are covering three short positions tonight, but refraining from going long: CAT, CGW (Global Water ETF), and GRES (Global Resources).

    Is this a real rally? A buy-the-dip rally? Not certain. I am getting a lot of buy signals, which makes me think it could be. But then I get a 'buy signal' of the VIX also.

    The VIX is notoriously short-lived and hard to trade. But one of our better trading systems gave a buy-signal today. What to make of it?

    What does this VIX buy signal represent? Food for thought, at least.

    What we see happening in Canada and New York (axe-weilding man) is going to be with us for a long time, I'm afraid. And the more we marginalize a generation through lack of employment opportunities, the more of this we will see.
