Megadeath

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Reports of the demise of the Megaphone may be greatly exaggerated. Last week $SPX exceeded the upper trend line of the Megaphone pattern and calls of the pattern’s death have been plentiful since then. But is the pattern truly invalidated? Since the summer I’ve state clearly: For bulls to convince...

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader New highs every day or so now. Investors are chasing the new highs, the president celebrates on twitter almost every day. Things are great. Melt-up talk is the rage. Hate to be the seemingly lone voice of caution here, but something smells. Look, I get narratives are changing all the...

Melt-Up

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Lots of chatter about a coming melt-up coming in stocks. And why not? If fundamentals or earnings growth no longer matter and markets are drowning again in artificial central bank liquidity may as well forego any valuation or fundamental discussion. Yet as we speak markets are getting to key historical...

BreakOut Fake-Out?

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader The Fed cut rates, the ECB officially launched QE, and a parade of administration officials touted progress on the ever elusive China trade deal for the 100th time and voila: Markets breaking out to new highs. But is the breakout a fake out? Let’s explore some uncomfortable facts, charts and...

Launch Failure

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Well, I hope it was all worth it. What was? The Fed whoring itself out to market pressure once again of course. Throwing in that totally unnecessary 3rd rate cut. But they have to keep appeasing the beast they have created. “Hawkish rate cut” was the initial take by many news...

Creating Money Out Of Thin Air

Via Nell Sloane at Capital Trading Group The FOMC decision on Wednesday will be the highlight moment for this week’s trade. The market is pricing in a 98% confidence level garden variety, non-transitory, certainly not QE 25bp cut in the Fed Funds rate to a band of 1.50% to 1.75%. Mind you, dear intelligent reader,...

S&P500: Pas endnu engang på falske brud

Via Daytrader.dk Af Peter Arendt, minagro.dk, professionel trader og tradingmentorSiden årsskiftet fra 2017 til 2018 har nervøsiteten på aktiemarkedet været total. Det fremgår med alt tydelighed, hvis vi kigger på det ledende amerikanske aktie-index, S&P500. Forud for årsskiftet til 2018, lå næsten 9 års konstant optur på aktiemarkedet. En optur der blev skudt i gang...

Magic Show

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader It’s that time again, the magic levitation show, but this one is a peculiar one. I talked a bit about it in Zombieland, but the continuation on the same path this week ahead of the Fed meeting is actually getting quite embarrassing as all pretense that markets are anything but...

Intervention

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader The Fed has gone into full intervention mode. Not only into full intervention mode, but accelerated intervention mode. Not just a little “mid cycle adjustment” but full bore daily interventions to the tune of dozens of billions of dollars every single day. What’s the crisis? After all we live in...

Børstalent: Jeg tæller antallet af fyringer i et selskab, før jeg investerer

Via Daytrader.dk Den argentinsk-fødte trader Mariano Pardo har succes med en meget alternativ tilgang til aktiemarkedet: Han tæller antallet af fyringer i et børsselskab og sammenholder det blandt andet med medarbejdernes arbejds-tilfredshed.  Alle tallene putter han ind i sin hjemmebyggede algoritme, og på det grundlag danner han sig en idé om, hvorvidt den pågældende virksomhed...
