Dow Gargoyle – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Newsflash while the tech bubble is running: Most major indices still peaked on June 8th, a month ago.

The Bubble – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader At this stage market are basically just a liquidity meth lab, an artificial behemoth constructed and subsidized by the Fed stepping in on any downside in markets. Following $3 trillion in liquidity injections in 3 months ($12 trillion annualized) markets have entirely disconnected from the economy and any traditional valuation metrics....

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader First they dismiss you as a conspiracy theorist then they join you. The secret is out, the Fed is busted: Central banks have distorted asset prices far above the economy.I’ve been harping about the market cap to GDP ratio for a while and even called the Fed’s asset price distortion...

Breaking Bad – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Well, they’ve done it again. The Fed has once again managed to erase the larger market pain. This time it was not the standard correction that was erased, this time they erased a market crash as $NDX is trading at all time human history highs. I, for one, have to...

AAPL Check #2 – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader On February 16 in $AAPL Check I had issued a technical warning on $AAPL as it was trading at around $325.

Straight Talk #3 – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Another week another Fed save as Jay Powell’s 60 minute interview aborted the market weakness from the week before resuming in a weekly market gap up which was further fueled by yet another conveniently timed false hope vaccine headline.

Smackdown – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader A violent rejection in markets following a furious rally that began on March 23. Small caps rallied 10% in 3 days only to give it all away in just 2 days.A coincidence? Hardly. Firstly the risk levels of this rally were well advertised in advance including on March 28 in...

Broken System – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader The Fed poisons everything, and I mean everything. From markets, the economy, and I will even go as far as politics. Sounds far fetched? Let me make my case below. But as much as the Fed poisons everything this crisis here again reveals a larger issue: The system is completely...

The Three Pillars – NorthmanTrader

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader New bull market? No. Unproven. New lows to come or a retest? No. Unproven. Markets are engaged in a key battle between the worst evolving fundamental picture in our lifetimes on the one hand, and the largest set of liquidity injections in history. A looming $3.7 trillion deficit, a Fed...

Sven Henrich via Northman Trader Nasdaq green for the year. What crisis? The Fed’s got this. Only took $2 trillion in balance sheet expansion in four weeks and all is well again. Non. Sense.
