QUADRUPLE WITCHING MAY REDUCE UPWARD PRESSURE ON THE STOCK MARKET NEXT WEEK

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 this week is attributable to book squaring ahead of quadruple witching.  Often such moves reverse over the next few days.

Industrial Production

Industrial Production came at 0.1% vs. 0.4% consensus.  This is a weak number. In theory, it should cause some selling.  However the market is in the control of the momo crowd and this crowd cares only about momentum and nothing else.

Capacity Utilization came at 78.5% vs. 78.5% consensus.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is buying stocks in the early trade.   Smart money is inactive.

Gold

The momo crowd is buying gold in the early trade running gold over $1300.  Smart money is inactive.

Oil

The momo crowd is acting like a yo-yo.  Smart money is inactive.

Marijuana

The momo crowd is buying marijuana stocks.  Smart money is lightly selling marijuana stocks.

Technical Patterns

Oil is tracing a weak inverse head and shoulders pattern. This is bullish. ETF of interest is USO.

This is powerful information and many investors use this to enter trades in addition to our official signals.  Here are the three most common uses: 1) Short-term trades in ETFs  2) Decisions to trim or add to long-term positions, and 3) New option trades. These should be used judiciously only in conjunction with macro, fundamental and quantitative indicators.  To learn more please click here.

Markets

TRUMP – XI MEETING PUSHED BACK BUT MOMO STILL BUYING STOCKS

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

Trump – Xi Meeting Delayed

The U. S. and China have pushed back the meeting between President Trump and President Xi.

In theory, this should have caused stocks to fall, the dollar and bonds to gain and the yuan to weaken. Very little of what should have happened is happening so far as of this writing.  This is a prime example of what happens when momentum takes hold and the momo crowd is not paying attention to anything other than the momentum.

Historically when the momo crowd ignores the news, there is a delayed reaction after smart money starts selling aggressively.

Jobless Claims

Initial Jobless Claims came at 229K vs. 225K consensus.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is aggressively buying stocks. The smart money is lightly selling.

The breakout above $1,300 failed.  As of this writing the momo crowd is aggressively selling gold and gold has fallen below $1,300.  Smart money is inactive.

MORE GOOD INFLATION DATA, PELTZ JUMPING INTO MARIJUANA

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

More Good Inflation Data

Lately Producer Price Index (PPI) has been higher than the consensus.  This raised the concern that prices at producer level were rising but were not being passed on to consumers.  This scenario is leading to lower corporate earnings.  However there is good news for investors this morning.

Core PPI came at 0.1% vs. 0.2% consensus.  This indicates that inflation at the producer level is moderating.

Durable Goods

Durable Goods Ex-transport came at -0.1% vs. +0.1% consensus.  We leave out transports because their volatility masks the underlying trends.

Brexit

Prime Minister May suffered another defeat.  Parliament is likely to vote again to show that the country does not want to leave the European Union on March 29 without a deal.

The Arora Report has an unrivaled record in identifying companies that get bought out.  To date, 146 of The Arora Report companies have been bought out.  A lot of M&A right now involves buying of privately held companies.
