To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Negative Nvidia Pattern

Please click here for a chart of Nvidia stock (NVDA).

Note the following:

  • The Morning Capsule is about the big picture, not an individual stock.  The chart of NVDA is being used to illustrate the point.
  • The chart shows that NVDA stock has traced an outside day.  An outside day is a reversal pattern in traditional technical analysis.
  • The chart shows that The Arora Report gave a signal to partially hedge the NVDA position when NVDA was trading at $952.74, right near the very top.  Since the signal to hedge NVDA stock, NVDA has lost about $250B worth of value.  The Arora signal to hedge NVDA has now proven prescient.
  • The chart shows that NVDA is long from $125.51 when NVDA stock fell in the Arora buy zone shown on the left side of the chart.
  • The chart shows that the reversal pattern in NVDA stock was on heavy volume.  This is negative.
  • Nvidia is important for the following reasons.
    • Nvidia is the center of the artificial intelligence revolution.
    • Nvidia has been the best performing large cap tech stock.
    • About one third of S&P 500 performance is due to Nvidia.
    • Nvidia has become the favorite of the momo crowd, replacing Tesla (TSLA).
    • Nvidia usually has the most option volume on the call side, indicating the YOLO (you only live once) mentality that has seeped into the stock market.
  • The move in NVDA stock is actively impacting the entire semiconductor sector.  As we have written before, semiconductors are the leading sector.  The Arora Report members had an advanced notice that semiconductors may fall from the signal given in ZYX Allocation to take partial profits in semiconductor ETF SMH just prior to the drop.  That Arora signal has now proven spot on.
  • The next major event ahead is CPI data that will be released tomorrow morning at 8:30am ET.  The consensus is 0.3% for both the headline and the core.  However, whisper numbers are lower as Wall Street believes that inflation has dramatically slowed down.
    • CPI data will be a major test of the extreme positive sentiment that has prevailed on Wall Street.
    • As we have previously written, extreme positive sentiment is a contrary signal, but it is not a precise timing signal.
  • Expect momo gurus to come up with new narratives to buy the dip in NVDA and other semiconductor stocks.  Prudent investors who pay attention to not only rewards but also risks may consider waiting for Arora buy zones.
  • Quadruple witching is ahead on Friday and often leads to volatility.  In quadruple witching, stock index futures, futures options, stock options, and single stock futures expire.
  • March 9 was the 15th anniversary of the backup the truck Arora buy signal.  Hindsight shows that the backup the truck Arora buy signal coincided with the exact low of S&P 500 at 666 prior to the start of the epic bull market.
  • 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.


The Japanese stock market experienced a major sell off after making new highs.  Of course, members of The Arora Report had advanced notice.  Last week, a signal was given to take partial profits on Japan ETF EWJ in ZYX Allocation prior to the drop in the Japanese stock market.  The signal has now proven spot on.

Bitcoin (BTC.USD) has moved above $72,000.  Two pieces of news are helping.

  • One is the London Stock Exchange will allow applications for bitcoin and ethereum ETNs. British regulators say that bitcoin is not suitable for retail investors.  For this reason, they will allow the ETNs only for professionals.
  • The second piece of news is that MicroStrategy (MSTR) is buying an additional 12,000 bitcoin for $821.7M cash.

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.

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.
