AFTERNOON CAPSULE: WALL STREET FRONT RUNS REBALANCING BY SELLING STOCKS AND BUYING BONDS

AFTERNOON CAPSULE: WALL STREET FRONT RUNS REBALANCING BY SELLING STOCKS AND BUYING BONDS

This post was published yesterday in The Arora Report  paid feeds as Afternoon Capsule.

Wall Street Front Runs

Previously we shared with you in advance in the Morning Capsule on Tuesday the 23rd:

Rebalancing Risk

Pension funds will be rebalancing before the end of the quarter.  This poses a serious risk of selling of billions of dollars of stock.  Of course the momo crowd is oblivious to what is coming.

 

Rebalancing will take place before the end of the quarter next week when billions of dollars of stocks will be sold and bonds will be bought.

As is often the case, today Wall Street is front running rebalancing by selling stocks and buying bonds.   This is the real reason behind bonds staging big rallies while the stock market is falling.

Positive Seasonality Ahead

After the quarter end, positive seasonality is ahead for a few days.

  • New quarter money will pour into Wall Street on the first and second of July.
  • Historically, three days leading to the Fourth of July holiday and the day after are positive as investors get into the celebration mood, senior people are on vacation and junior hands man the desks.  Due to coronavirus situation, this year, the historical precedent may not hold.

Money Flows

The momo crowd money flows since the Morning Capsule are negative.

Smart money flows since the Morning Capsule are neutral.

Short squeeze money flows are mild positive.

A Special Note To New Subscribers

Note the smart money behavior.  Smart money tends to sell into strength on strong up days.

New subscribers should consider adopting smart money’s  way of investing and trading.

Sentiment

Sentiment is positive.

Sentiment is a contrary indicator at extremes.  In plain English, this means that when sentiment becomes extremely positive it is time to sell and when sentiment becomes extremely negative it is time to buy.

Gold

The momo crowd money flows in gold are negative since the Morning Capsule.

Smart money flows are  neutral in gold  since the Morning Capsule.

Oil

The momo crowd money flows in oil are negative since the Morning Capsule.

Smart money flows in oil are neutral  since the Morning Capsule.

Buy Zones And Buy Now Ratings

Consider not strategically buying at this time unless there is a recent signal or a stock/ETF is in the lower one-third of the buy zone and you are comfortably situated within the protection bands.

Nibbling

Consider not nibbling at this time.

Close

There appear to be sell on close orders.

There is merit to watching the pattern of market on close orders as they represent the day’s dominant net cumulative activity  by many professionals and funds.

The content below is unchanged and is to be used for reference as needed. 

Sophistication 

Many investors are spoiled due to the decade long bull market.  Many believe it is very simple – be all in or be all out.  Unfortunately, the last decade was an exception to the rule.

As the market is running up, investors who do not understand the true nature of the market are jumping in with both feet without appreciating the risks.

Risk and reward are two sides to the coin. It is important to consider both.

For your reference, we are pasting the following from your Getting A Running Start Guide,

Everything should be made as simple as possible but not simpler.

Strategic Vs. Tactical

All investors should consider bringing more sophistication to their investing and trading.  It is important to clearly understand the difference between strategic and tactical calls.  For your convenience, a prior post is pasted below.

ASK ARORA: CASH AND HEDGES: UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL CALLS

Nigam Arora answers your questions about investing in stocks, ETFs, bonds, gold and silver, oil and currencies. Have a question? Send it to Nigam Arora.

We have written previously about the importance of understanding the difference between strategic calls and tactical calls.

We welcome your comments and questions.  The law does not allow us to answer them individually. However, when a large number of subscribers ask similar questions, a post is done.  Typically starting with Ask Arora.

Based on the questions received this morning, a refresher on understanding the difference between strategy and tactics is in order.

Strategy

Strategy defines medium to long term plan to achieve the highest risk adjusted returns.

Tactics

Tactics are small adjustments within the strategy to further enhance risk adjusted returns.

If You Could Pick Only One

We recognize that all investors have individual preferences.  If you could pick only one, consider focusing on the strategy. Never focus only on tactics at the expense of strategy. 

Strategic Call

The strategic call at this time is to stay cautiously bullish.  The logic is very straightforward.  Consider the following key points:

  • The stock market has been going straight up for 10 years.  It is late cycle.  Portfolios have to be organized for the late cycle.  Risks are much higher in the late cycle compared to when a bull market is in an early stage.
  • The world is awash in debt.  The sovereign debt owed by governments and corporate debt owed by zombie corporations has dramatically increased.  It is a bubble that is getting bigger waiting for a pin to prick it.
  • Valuations are expensive.
  • A big reason for levitation of the stock market is money printing by the central banks.   This can continue for a long time but not forever.

Tactical Calls

Tactical calls are simply short term adjustments.  For example, a tactical call to decrease cash and hedges is based on the following:

  • Weak hands temporarily washed out overbought condition.
  • Overbought condition temporarily relieved.
  • Sentiment backing off from almost extreme bullish levels.
  • Overall better earnings.

Cash And Hedges

We provide a range for cash and hedges.  Most investors would be in the middle of the ranges.  As such, they would not need to make any change.  When a change is given only at the edges of the ranges, only the most active investors need to make a change.

Arora’s 12th Law

Arora’s 12th Law is applicable here: To be successful at investing and trading, flow with the new data and stay nimble.

Bullet Proof Your Portfolio And Increase Your Returns

We consistently see that private investors, money managers and investment advisors who have attended the Bullet Proof Your Portfolio and Increase Your Returns seminar do significantly better compared to those who have not attended the seminar.

Here are the four main reasons why this consistently happens to investors who attend the seminar:

  • They start understanding the true nature of the markets.
  • Develop a better framework to handle the true nature of the market.
  • Tend to act with more conviction and with more comfort.
  • Tend to develop a better control over their emotions.
