Please scroll down for the section What To Do Now.

QUADRUPLE WITCHING, REBALANCING, PMI DAY AND COLD WATER ON CANNABIS

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

Quadruple Witching

Today is quadruple witching.  For practical purposes this will increase volatility as futures and options expire.

Please note that a large part of the rise in the stock market over the last two days is attributable to book squaring ahead of quadruple witching.  Often such moves reverse over the next few days.

Rebalancing

The largest revision since 1999 is effective today in the Global Industry Classification Standard.  This will cause moves in several important stocks.  For example some of the most popular technology stocks are no longer in the technology sector.

Growth Slows In Europe

PMI numbers have been released for various countries in Europe and the Euro area. The data shows that growth unexpectedly slowed in Europe.

Cold Water On Cannabis

Normally we do not mention individual stocks in the Morning Capsule unless it has an impact on the entire market.  The hottest sector in the market has been marijuana stocks.  The hottest marijuana stock has been Tilray (TLRY).  TLRY and marijuana stocks got a boost when TLRY got permission to supply marijuana to a researcher in the United States.  This was a monumental event.  Until now, the researchers in the United States have been restricted to get marijuana only from one farm operated by the University of Mississippi.

Now a politician is questioning TLRY supplying marijuana and a movement is on the way to reverse the decision.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is aggressively buying stocks in the early trade.  The smart money is selling into the strength. Unlike past days, selling by smart money is not light.

Gold

There is aggressive selling by the momo crowd in gold.  Gold is also being sold on the dollar becoming stronger.

Oil

The momo crowd is aggressively buying oil.  A short squeeze is also taking place.

OPTIMISM CONTINUES BUT BUYBACK BLACKOUT MAY CAUSE VOLATILITY

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

Optimism But Buyback Blackout

Optimism about stocks continues.  Sentiment is now very positive.  The next step in sentiment is extremely positive.  When sentiment becomes extremely positive, it is a contrary indicator. In plain English, stocks often fall when sentiment becomes extremely positive.

A big reason behind the stock market rise is that corporations continue to aggressively buyback their own stocks.  Corporations stop buying their own stock one month before the earnings release.  Earnings season starts on October 5th.  This means that many corporations are now getting into the blackout period.  Support from buybacks for the stock market will temporarily disappear.

For practical purposes, there may be dips over the next 30 days that may provide buying opportunities. Consider being patient.

STOCKS RISE ON ESCALATION OF TRADE WAR, 3% YIELD

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

Stocks Rise On Escalation Of Trade War

Trump has escalated the trade war by imposing 10% tariffs on additional $200 billion of Chinese goods.  On the surface it may seem that the stock market should go down.  However the stock market does not work that way.

The stock market is going up because the amount of tariffs is less than the whisper number.  The stock market moves based on the difference between reality and the whisper numbers.

China Response

China is responding with tariffs on $60 billion of U. S. goods.

Asian Stocks Move Up

Asian stocks, including Chinese stocks, are moving up on the escalation of the trade war.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is aggressively buying stocks in the early trade.

The smart money is lightly selling.

3% Yield

10 year Treasury yields are hovering around 3%.  3% is a key level.  Even those investors who do not invest in bonds need to pay attention to this level because bonds compete with stocks.  The higher the yields the stronger the competition.

Gold

Trading in gold is listless.  Those who were hoping that gold would move higher on the escalation of the trade war are disappointed and selling.

Oil

Saudi Arabia is stating that it is comfortable with oil going over $80.  This is helping bulls on oil. On the other hand the trade war is negative for oil.

Technical Patterns

Russian stocks are tracing a Mega Phone bottom.  This is bullish.  ETF of interest is RSX.
