Pay Attention to Momo Behavior

Note the following:

  • In the Morning Capsule, we wrote and previously stated in the January Effect post

The assumption at this point in time is that the momo crowd is not going to change its behavior and will buy the dip.

Another assumption at this point is that momo gurus will come up with narratives to persuade their followers to keep on buying stocks.

  • For the time being, both assumptions have proven correct. Momo is aggressively buying the dip. Buying is most aggressive in tech stocks.
  • The Fed is finally listening to the data after being wrong for a long time on multiple counts.
  • Keep in mind that the Fed is talking about reducing the balance sheet down the road and perhaps going from 0.0% to 0.25% in March.
  • It is mind boggling that the Fed is still printing money and plans to continue money printing through March and then make an abrupt about turn.
  • Momo gurus have latched on to the foregoing point. Their new narrative to persuade their followers to buy stocks is that the Fed is still printing money for a couple of months.


  • 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.
  • As expected, the VUD indicator was solid orange indicating heavy net supply of stocks at the open and right after the open.  As momo buying became aggressive, VUD fluctuated between green and orange.  As of this writing, VUD has turned solid green indicating net demand for stocks.
  • Considering the significant dip in tech stocks yesterday, the pattern traced by the VUD indicator is nowhere near as bullish as it should have been.  In prior dips since the pandemic, the day after the dip VUD tended to be solid green and also of higher magnitude.  This should be of concern for those who are super bullish.
  • There is no change in protection bands, cash levels, and hedges recommended in the Morning Capsule as well as in very long term positions at this time.  Of course, there is potential for all of this to change very quickly.
