Make Or Break Data Ahead

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

Note the following:

  • The chart shows QQQ is in the resistance zone.
  • The chart shows that the rally is on low volume, indicating a lack of conviction.
  • The chart shows that RSI has jumped and is now overbought. RSI indicates that the stock market is now vulnerable to the downside if the macro data goes against the market.
  • The chart shows Arora calls to raise hedges near the top and the Arora call to reduce hedges near the bottom. These calls have proven spot on.  When hedges are used over a long period of time, they can add significant amounts to your returns and significantly lower your risks.  If you do not hedge, you can simply adjust cash.  Please see the “Protection Band And What To Do Now” section below.
  • Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI) are ahead –these pieces of data are make or break for the stock market.  Here is the consensus:
    • 0.3% for headline PPI
    • 0.2% for core PPI
    • 0.4% for headline CPI
    • 0.3% for core CPI
  • Wall Street is positioned for inflation data to cool and the stock market to break out of the resistance zone shown on the chart.  
  • Prudent investors need to be aware that if the data goes against Wall Street’s positioning, the stock market reaction to the downside can be severe due to positive positioning.  Positioning is an important Wall Street that all investors should strive to deeply understand.  The easiest way to understand positioning is to listen to the podcast titled “Market Mechanics: Positioning.”
  • Apple (AAPL) is reportedly in talks with OpenAI to put ChatGPT on iPhones.  This is creating positive sentiment in the market.  On the surface, this is negative for Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL).
  • As a proof positive of the speculative sentiment in the stock market rapidly increasing ahead of the key data, the meme crowd is back. They are running up video game retailer GameStop (GME). To some degree, this is reminiscent of the start of the last meme crowd craze which ended in tears for the meme crowd.
  • Artificial intelligence stocks are getting a boost on reports that Arm (ARM) is developing new artificial intelligence chips
  • As an actionable item, the sum total of the foregoing is in the protection band, which strikes the optimum balance between various crosscurrents.   Please scroll down to see the protection band.

Protection Band And What To Do Now

It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.

Consider continuing to hold good, very long term, existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, consider holding *** in cash or Treasury bills 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, the total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.

A protection band of 0% would be very bullish and would indicate full investment with 0% in cash.  A protection band of 100% would be very bearish and would indicate a need for aggressive protection with cash and hedges or aggressive short selling.

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.

Traditional 60/40 Portfolio

Probability based risk reward adjusted for inflation does not favor long duration strategic bond allocation at this time.

Those who want to stick to traditional 60% allocation to stocks and 40% to bonds may consider focusing on only high quality bonds and bonds of seven year duration or less.  Those willing to bring sophistication to their investing may consider using bond ETFs as tactical positions and not strategic positions at this time.
