News From China

Please click here for a chart of S&P 500 ETF (SPY) which represents the benchmark stock market index S&P 500 (SPX).

Note the following:

  • The chart shows that the stock market is consolidating in the support/resistance zone.
  • RSI on the chart shows that the stock market can go either way.
  • There was aggressive buying in stock futures yesterday evening and early this morning on the news from China.  China is scrapping quarantine requirements for incoming travelers.
  • Stocks in Shanghai were up 1% overnight.
  • The momo crowd is aggressively buying Chinese stocks oblivious to the Taiwan risk.  Over the weekend, China sent 71 planes and seven ships towards Taiwan.  The Chinese show of force is in response to U.S. defense spending bill.  President Biden has signed the $858B bill into law.  The bill is $45B more than what Biden had requested.  The bill authorizes increased cooperation with Taiwan and India to counter China.
  • As the morning has progressed, some investors are taking advantage of the strength and selling.  As of this writing, Nasdaq futures have turned negative after being up strongly earlier in the morning.  S&P 500 futures have given up most of their gains from earlier this morning as well.
  • Seasonality is positive.

Two Years Down Is A Rarity

Since 1928, the stock market falling two years straight in a row is a rarity.  It has happened only four times:

  • Great Depression
  • World War II
  • Oil crisis in 1970’s
  • Dot.com bubble bust in early 2000’s

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 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.

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.
