JAPANESE BUYING MAY BE BEHIND THE MYSTERY THAT DROVE TECH STOCKS HIGHER

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

Mystery Solved

Please click here for a chart of bond ETF ().

Note the following:

  • We have been sharing with you that tech stocks are inversely correlated to interest rates.  In plain English, tech stocks go down when interest rates rise.
  • Bonds go down when interest rates rise.
  • The chart shows that bonds have risen.
  • The chart shows that bonds have cut through the resistance zone like a hot knife through butter.
  • The economic data that we have shared with you has been very strong.
  • Bonds are supposed to go down on economic data.
  • Here bonds went up on strong economic data.  This is not supposed to happen. Why this happened was a mystery on Wall Street yesterday morning.
  • It appears that strong buying in bonds came from Japan.  The reason is that on a currency-hedged basis, the yields on U. S. bonds became very attractive for Japanese buyers relative to Japanese bonds.
  • This is an example of how complex the markets are. For this reason, investors should bring more sophistication to their investing and stay away from simple-minded approaches that gurus advertise to entice investors.

Housing Starts

The housing market is still red hot.  March Housing Starts came at 1.739M vs. 1.621M consensus.

Building Permits came at 1.766M vs. 1.750M consensus.

China GDP

The Chinese economy grew by 18.3% year on year.  This is the strongest growth since China started record-keeping in 1992.

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.

FREE MONEY LEADS TO BLOWOUT RETAIL SALES – MOMO EXCITED

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

Dr. Copper

Please click here for a chart of copper futures ().

Note the following:

  • Traditionally copper has been called Dr. Copper because during good economic times copper consumption went up.
  • Now in addition to good economy copper consumption is going to go up with electric cars, solar, and other decarbonization projects.
  • The move up in copper is creating bullishness in stock markets around the world after a research report that is projecting a huge increase in copper prices.
  • The chart shows the strong trend line.
  • The chart shows a strong move in copper much above the pre-COVID high.
  • The chart shows that copper has moved decisively above 2018 high when the market was excited about copper.

Retail Sales

Biden’s free money is working.  Consumers have been out shopping.

Retails Sales came at 9.8% vs. 5.3% consensus.

Retail Sales Ex-auto came at 8.4% vs. 4.9% consensus.

Jobless Claims

Jobless Claims came at 576K vs. 695K consensus.  This indicates that the job picture is dramatically improving.  This dramatic fall in jobless claims is striking especially in view of the anecdotal evidence that some people are trying their best to not get jobs because unemployment benefits are higher than what they were making pre-COVID.  This number indicates that there is likely strong inflation in wages.   This is important because the Fed’s and Biden’s premise is that there is no inflation and if inflation rises it will be temporary.  Can you see employers decreasing wages next year after giving big raises this year? Herein lies the risk to investors from Powell and Biden policies.
