Latching Onto A Straw

Please click here for a chart of Nasdaq 100 ETF ().

Note the following:

  • The chart shows when momo crowd latched onto a straw in Powell’s answer to a question in his testimony in front of the Senate and started aggressively buying stocks.
  • Buying is especially aggressive in momo stocks that have lost 30 – 80% of their value and are likely to lose more as the Fed raises rates.
  • The straw that momo latched onto was a Powell statement that no decision has been made on reducing the Fed’s balance sheet.
  • Momo gurus are spinning the narrative that there may be another month or two before long-duration momo stocks go down, so for the time being buy them.
  • Momo and their gurus ignored the two most important things Powell said about the balance sheet.
    • The Fed balance sheet at $9 trillion is simply too large and needs to be reduced.
    • The Fed expects to reduce the balance sheet at a significantly faster rate compared to the last time
  • Both of the foregoing points are negative for the long-duration aggressive momo stocks that the momo crowd is buying today.


  • In the Morning Capsule we wrote:

Overall, this is a positive technical pattern. Many bulls are contending that the bottom is in. Before you get excited, some historical perspective is important.

 has traded down more than 2.5% intraday but finished positive 15 times since 2003.  However, this pattern happened 46 times in the period of 1999 – 2002.   crashed in 2000.

  • Due to the positive technical pattern, those who trade purely on technicals are jumping in to buy.
  • The higher the market goes, the stronger the belief will become that the bottom is in.
  • Prudent investors should wait for the inflation data that we discussed in Monday’s Morning Capsule before any change in strategy.  If inflation data is stronger than the consensus, expect smart money to sell the rally.  If the inflation data is weaker than expected, then the plan will be to initiate some buying.  
  • The VUD indicator is the most sensitive measure of net supply demand in real-time. The orange represents net supply and the green represents net demand.
  • The chart shows that VUD indicator was solid green during the initial buying, but has failed to continue solid green as the day has progressed.  This indicates that there are sellers in the market willing to sell to the momo crowd at these prices.  The sellers are likely hedging against bad inflation data.
