THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO THE STOCK MARKET DIRECTION

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

The Key

Please click here for a chart of  7-10 year Treasury bond ETF ()

Note the following:

  • The most important key to the future stock market direction is bonds
  • Bonds move inverse to interest rates.  In plain English, bonds go down when interest rates move higher and vise versa.
  • The chart shows that bonds bounced off the support tracing a double bottom (some will call it a triple bottom).
  • The chart shows that bonds are now at a resistance zone.
  • The chart shows that previously a breakdown occurred from the present resistance zone.  This breakdown was the real reason behind the pullback in Nasdaq, SPACs, and other momo stocks.
  • The chart shows that bonds have now recovered all the way back to the breakdown point.  This is the reason that Nasdaq has also recovered.
  • SPACs and momo stocks have not recovered because they were speculative stocks and speculative stocks tend to lag.
  • If the bonds break above the resistance zone, expect a rip-roaring rally especially in tech stocks.
  • If bonds break the support shown on the chart, expect tech stocks to significantly pull back and also expect a blood bath in speculative momo stocks as well as SPACs.
  • The foregoing is the most important key for the stock market direction. However, keep in mind that there are always many other factors and cross currents.

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, on dips, 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, 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.

THE FASTEST INCREASE IN INVESTOR BORROWING SINCE 2007

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

Investor Borrowing

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

Note the following:

  • Investor borrowing hit a record $814 billion at the end of February.
  • This is up 49% from a year ago.
  • This is the fastest increase since 2007.
  • Investors may recall that the stock market crashed in 2008.
  • Prior to 2007, the last time margin debt grew fast was in 1999.
  • The stock market crashed in 2000.
  • 2021 is different from 200 and 2008 in that the Fed is printing money unlike those two times and the government is borrowing excessively unlike those two times.  The borrowing and money printing significantly reduces the probability of a crash in the short term as the market is flooded with liquidity.
  • The chart shows that there is strong buying in Nasdaq in the early trade.
  • The chart shows that Nasdaq is now close to the prior high.  The prior high is acting as a magnet for traders.
  • RSI shows that Nasdaq is now very overbought and vulnerable.
  • Investors should pay special attention to the volume.  The chart shows that the volume during the rally is relatively low compared to the volume during the drop.  This indicates a lack of conviction in the rally.

  • The chart shows Nasdaq has decisively moved above the support line (prior resistance line) shown on the chart.

A NEW ‘DOUBLE MUTANT’ VIRUS VARIANT NOW IN THE U. S.

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

Double Mutant

Please click here for a chart of  S&P 500 ETF () which represents the benchmark for the stock market index ().

  • Standford Healthcare has identified seven possible cases around the San Francisco Bay area of a new ‘double mutant’ virus variant.

  • In theory, the new double mutant variant is more lethal and more contagious.  It also appears that vaccines are less effective.
  • The mainstream media is not yet highlighting the story.  For investors, the concern is that if this variant spreads, it may slow down the recovery.
  • If the variant spreads, the momo crowd will likely buy the news because it will mean more money printing, more borrowing, and more free checks.
  • Smart money will likely sell the news, especially since the market is very expensive.
  • The chart shows there is a nice move up in RSI since yesterday.  This is a positive.
  • The chart shows that after the breakout, yesterday the market closed near its high.  This is a positive.
  • The chart shows that in the early trade there is a pause even though the momo crowd is buying aggressively.
