And Now For Something A Little Same

The apparent autoeroticism of this process does not discourage. Though a benchmark for authenticity remains nebulous at best, the thrill of purging the mind for none, a minor feat of intellectual exhibitionism, does variably produce the sweet if fleeting sense of relief. Respite from what? That strange sensation which lurks somewhere “inside,” though the origins…


Familiar Territory

Everything has changed, but nothing seems different. The S&P 500 currently displays structural characteristics resembling the market in August 2007, May 2010 & August 2011. If memory serves me correct, those months were marked by an unraveling housing market, the flash crash, and a European debt crisis. Perhaps something more substantial than Ebol-ISIS-ocalypse has  infected the markets, skyrocketing treasuries and…

S&P 500 Bullidex ($ES_F $SPY $SPX)

Things look grim for the S&P 500 as the Bullidex fell 8.45% to close at 169, breaking the June low. This is a big warning sign to all equity investors as the volatility increases relative to the number of rising stocks, which lowers the probability of successful investment.

S&P 500 Bullidex ($ES_F $SPY $SPX)

Despite today’s reversal and positive close in the S&P 500, the Bullidex fell 10% to close at 184. This divergence suggests a weakening uptrend and signals downside risk as volatility increases relative to the number of rising stocks. The month of June was a whipsaw cluster-fuck for my indicator, but that comes with the territory….


Financial Bullidex ($XLF)

Although the financial sector closed positive on Tuesday, the corresponding Bullidex fell .62%, to close at 159. Higher prices mask the internals of the sector, which is decreasing in bullish breadth relative to volatility. This divergence suggests that the rally is false, and that shorting XLF or FAS is a good idea. The XLF remains…

This trend is not conducive to lucrative investment as the probability of buying a good stock and not getting shaken out diminishes. Though there will certainly be up days, the odds favor further deterioration. Staying…
