Correlation Watch

Correlation does not imply causation, but who ya gonna believe, me or your lying eyes? Look, we’ve had a classic bounce off of the 200MA following heavy oversold signals. If you stayed short or shorted at or near the lows you didn’t pay attention to the signals. Stocks were massively oversold and a reconnect bounce was coming and OPEX week always makes for a good time to do just that. […]

Shutdown Nonsense

Government shutdowns make for stirring headlines, but usually only for a few days.

Singularity

In technological singularity is the hypothesis that the invention of artificial super intelligence will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization. A similar concept may apply to financial markets in the realm that is bond yields versus equity prices producing a runaway event in its own right perhaps. Correlation does not imply causation but as you know I’ve been floating my theory of everything a […]

Check the Rhyme

You might think history teaches; it repeats; page after page, a poem in perfect rhyme tolls echoing bells from both sides of the sheets for births and funerals, tells the time of ageless Alice, Hamlet’s fallacies— the latest light from vanished galaxies – Suite of Mirrors Check the Rhyme: “U.S. consumers borrowed heavily in November, boosting their outstanding credit higher than in any month in four years, the Federal Reserve […]
