In Fed We Trust
Please click here for a chart of Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ).
Note the following:
- The chart shows that RSI had become very oversold.
- As we have been stating, when a market becomes oversold, it tends to bounce.
- The chart shows that momo buying has caused the market to bounce.
- The chart shows that during the decline, the market did not even touch the support line. This is a positive.
- The chart shows that the market closed above the support/resistance line. If this had not occurred on a Friday, this would have been considered positive. The bounce on Friday was, in part, a short squeeze.
- The chart shows that this morning the buying has eased causing the market to pull back to the support/resistance line.
- From a macro perspective, the market participants can now be divided into three camps.
- ‘In the Fed we trust’ crowd. This crowd is mostly made up of the momo crowd. This crowd believes the Fed in that inflation will be transitory and $120 billion a month of money printing is a ‘free lunch.’
- The second camp is of a small minority that believes the Fed is wrong. At a time when the housing market is red hot and mortgage rates are low, how does it make sense for the Fed to print money to buy mortgage securities hand over fist to cause the house prices to go even higher?
- The third camp mostly consists of smart money, is not taking a definitive stand but is highly skeptical of the Fed’s position.

Protection Bands and What To Do Now?
It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.
Consider continuing to hold existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, on dips, consider holding 🔒 in cash or treasury bills or short-term bond funds or allocated to short-term tactical trades and short to medium-term hedges of 🔒 and short term hedges of 🔒. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.
You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges. The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive. If you do not hedge, total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.
It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash. When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks. High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.
