STOCK MARKET X-RAY, TRUMP THINKS OF A VETO AND CHINA SUPPORTS ITS STOCK MARKET

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

Market X-ray

In yesterday’s Morning Capsule, we raised cash levels and described the reasons of hawkish Fed tilt and tariffs.  This was all done before the ugly sell off. Investors ought to look at a market x-ray.  We will do a separate post.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money

A vast majority of selling yesterday was by the m0mo crowd.  In early trade today, the momo crowd was first selling driving DJIA futures down another 200 points on top of the 700 point drop yesterday.  At down 900 points from yesterday, the smart money stepped in to start buying lightly. The smart money buying has erased the 200 point loss from the earlier momo selling.  As of this writing, smart money has stopped buying as the market has moved up.  However, now that the market has moved up, momo has started buying aggressively.

Trump Veto

It has not gained much publicity but investors ought to be concerned about the reports that Trump is thinking of vetoing the new spending bill. If Trump vetoes, this will cause uncertainty that will be negative for the market.

China Intervenes

On the positive side for investors, China is intervening to support its stock market.

Gold, Bonds And Oil

Money is flowing out of stocks and into gold, bonds and oil.

HAWKISH FED TILT, TRADE WAR FEARS, MOMO SELLS, PAY ATTENTION TO ‘WHAT TO DO NOW’

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

Hawkish Fed Tilt

Fed raised interest rates by 0.25% as expected.  However there is a hawkish tilt in projections for 2019 and 2020.  In plain English, this means that interest rates may go higher in 2019 and 2020 than expected.

In our analysis, 2019 and 2020 are too far to make any firm projections.  All the economy has to do is weaken slightly and interest rate projections will go down.

Trade War Fears

Trump is set to announce about $50 billion in tariffs directed at over 100 different types of Chinese goods.  This is igniting fears of a trade war.

In our analysis, there may be strong rhetoric coming back from China but China’s actual response is likely to be measured.

Momo And Smart Money

The momo crowd is aggressively selling.

Smart money lightly sold yesterday afternoon but is inactive this morning.

Gold

Gold ran up after the Fed announcement on momo buying.  Gold is giving back some of those gains this morning but is strong.

Oil

Oil rallied yesterday after bullish EIA numbers.  This morning oil is pulling back as yesterday’s rally was over done.

WAIT FOR FED DECISION, MOMO BUYS GOLD, OIL JUMPS

The smart money is inactive.

INTEREST RATE HIKE LIKELY TOMORROW, MOMO IS SHRUGGING OFF TECH STOCK SELL OFF

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

Interest Rate Hike Likely Tomorrow

FOMC is meeting. FOMC will likely announce an interest rate hike tomorrow. We will carefully be reading the tea leaves for the future course of the Fed regarding interest rates. This may require adjustment in the present portfolios if the future course becomes different from our present projections.

Momo Shrugs

After aggressively selling tech stocks for most of yesterday, momo is aggressively buying stocks this morning in the early trade.  Momo is perhaps encouraged by the late buying that came into the stock market near the close.  The buying was, in part, short sellers booking profits and mutual funds buying.

AGGRESSIVE MOMO SELLING OF FAANG STOCKS SPILLING OVER, U. K. EU BREXIT DEAL

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

Aggressive Selling By Momo Of FAANG Stocks

In early trade, momo is aggressively selling FAANG stocks.  FAANG stocks are FB, AMZN, AAPL, NFLX and GOOG. There are two new fundamental reasons for this selling.

  • AAPL is developing a new display technology that may hurt its suppliers.
  • FB consumer data was misused by the Trump campaign.

Spilling Over

In early trade, selling in FAANG stocks is spilling over in other sectors.

Smart Money

We have been sharing with you that smart money has often been light sellers of FAANG stocks into the strength.  Typically smart money does not sell into weakness and that is the case in the early trade.
