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, 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, 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.

RAISE CASH – FED WAS WRONG – MONEY PRINTING MAY BECOME LESS RECKLESS

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

Raise Cash

Consider raising cash.  Depending upon your personal preference, it is appropriate to take some partial profits especially on up spikes.  For details, please see the ‘Protection Bands and What To Do Now?’ section below.

Fed Was Wrong

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

Note the following:

  • Earlier this week we wrote:

The seasonality is positive this week but will turn negative next week.

The third quarter is historically the weakest quarter. Markets tend to dip from August to October.

The chart shows that RSI is very overbought and now flattening.  This indicates that a pullback may be coming.

  • The chart shows Arora’s call to raise cash today.
  • Note from the chart that the timing of the last three Arora sell signals was as perfect as it gets in real life.
  • Note from the chart that the timing of the last two buy signals was also as perfect as it gets in real life.  These signals follow hundreds of spot-on signals over a very long period in both bull and bear markets.
  • The chart shows that RSI has turned down.
  • The chart shows that the rally has been on low volume.  As we have previously shared with you, low volume rallies indicate a lack of conviction.
  • It is important for investors to keep in mind Arora’s Second Law of Investing: Nobody knows with certainty what is going to happen next in the markets.
  • We have been warning you that the momo crowd as well as a large number of institutional investors have been putting blind faith in the Fed and Biden.
  • We have also been warning you that those who have studied history know that the Fed has often been wrong especially at critical junctions.
  • We shared with you the details of the Fed minutes yesterday.
  • The Fed minutes show that Fed officials have been surprised by the surge in prices of goods and services.
  • The Fed minutes indicate that the Fed may be forced to give up its intransigence of recklessly printing money on the pretext of helping those who are on the low end of the economic totem pole.
  • If the Fed becomes less accommodative, it may cause a dip in the stock market as less air will be pumped into the stock market bubble.
  • When markets get overbought, they become vulnerable to a pullback.  On the days the market is going up, talking heads have all sorts of explanations for the market going up.  On the days the market drops, the same talking heads have, after the fact, all sorts of explanations for the market drop.  Today is no different.

Jobless Claims

Initial Jobless Claims came at 373K vs. 350K consensus.  This is a leading indicator and carries heavy weight in our models.

BOND YIELDS FALL TO WORRISOME LEVEL AHEAD OF FED MINUTES

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

Worrisome Fall

Please click here for a chart of 7 – 10 year Treasury bond () yield.

Note the following:

  • Based on subscriber feedback, we are using a chart of ETF  instead of a chart of 10- year yield because most subscribers find it easier to watch the chart of .
  • In yesterday’s Afternoon Capsule we wrote:

On fear of an economic slowdown, the 10-year Treasury yield fell to 1.35%.  This is the lowest yield since February 24, 2021.

When the 10-year yield falls below 1.40%, smart money becomes very concerned.

  • This morning, the 10-year yield has fallen to 1.30%
  • Bonds move inverse to the yield.
  • The chart shows IEF is breaking out.
  • Note the big move up in IEF from its lows.
  • The reason the fall in the yield is worrisome is because it indicates one or more of the following:
    • The Fed will continue to print money at the present rate for a long time.
    • The Fed will continue to buy bonds at a high rate for a long time.
    • The Fed will not raise interest rates for a long time.
    • After the initial rush of reopening, the economy is headed for a significant slow down.
    • Instead of inflation, there will be deflation.
  • A part of the drop in the yield may be due to the foreign buying of U. S. bonds but that does not fully explain the big drop.
  • The latest drop yesterday coincided with the weak ISM number.  Yesterday, in the Afternoon Capsule we wrote:

June ISM Non-Manufacturing Index came at 60.1% vs. 63.0% consensus.  This indicates that the economy is likely to slow down.

  • The drop in yield is the exact opposite of what was expected from the economy reopening.

Fed Minutes

The Fed minutes will be released at 2:00 pm ET.  These minutes may be a market-moving event.

We will be carefully studying these minutes to get some insights behind the drop in yields.

MOMO BUYING STOCKS – OPEC IN DISARRAY, HIGHLY INFECTIOUS LAMBDA VIRUS

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

Momo Buying

  • The seasonality is positive this week but will turn negative next week.
  • The third quarter is historically the weakest quarter. Markets tend to dip from August to October.
  • The chart shows that RSI is very overbought and now flattening.  This indicates that a pullback may be coming.

OPEC In Disarray

OPEC+ is in disarray.  UAE  has broken ranks with Saudi Arabia.  So far the cartel has failed to reach a production increase agreement.

Highly Infectious Lambda Virus

So far, the Lambda variant of coronavirus has been the most infectious variant.

Now 81% of cases in Peru are from Lambda.  Peru now has the highest death rate from COVID.

Lambda variant has now been found in Australia.

New data from Israel shows that protection of the PFE vaccine may be as low as 64% against the Delta variant.

The UK will lift all virus-related restrictions. The government’s reasoning is that people need to learn to live with the virus. The government expects deaths from the virus to go up after restrictions are lifted.
