Note the following:

  • The chart shows a rally on the progress in Ukraine.
  • You may recall that we reported the positive development in Ukraine before many were talking about it.

  • The rally shown on the chart would have been much stronger if it was not for scary headlines about Ukraine in the media and the media ignoring the positive developments.
  • The chart shows that the rally on Ukraine has been cut short by the Shenzhen lockdown.  For those not familiar with China, Shenzhen is the tech hub of China. As an example, Foxconn, the company that manufactures iPhones for  is halting operations in Shenzhen. Shenzhen has a large population of 17.5 million. The lockdown is due to the spread of coronavirus.
  • The virus is also spreading in Jilin and 24 million inhabitants have been locked in.
  • There is panic selling in Chinese stocks.   The selling has similarities to selling in the U. S. in March 2020.
  • 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 is mixed as the positive news from Ukraine collides with negative news from China.

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.
