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

Powell Colors

Please click here for a chart of  Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA).

Note the following:

  • The chart shows that the market fell near the close.
  • Powell is a smart man. So why has he continued to pursue policies of money printing and near-zero interest rates that were put in place when the economy was locked down and there was no vaccine?
  • We have previously shared with you that there has been speculation that Powell was pursuing these nonsensical policies and repeatedly making calls that were turning out to be wrong to appease Biden.
  • Yesterday afternoon, speculation started spreading that now that Biden has renominated Powell, Powel has no need to pursue nonsensical policies.
  • The speculation is that if Powell starts pursuing sensible policies, the aggressive tech stocks may start topping.
  • The foregoing caused a drop in the stock market near the close.
  • It is extremely important that investors understand the impact of the Fed policy, especially on aggressive tech stocks.
  • 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.
  • The VUD indicator shows the momo crowd is buying the dip in the early morning.
  • Please click here for a chart of QQQ that is exactly the same for the sake of transparency that was published yesterday in the Afternoon Capsule.  Initially, DJIA  had continued to levitate while tech stocks faltered.  For details, please see the Afternoon Capsule.

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.
