Wall Struck Performance

Recommended Posts

End - so was 2003 the first year that the market ever closed up after a down January, or whatever your stat was that had never happened before?

I found out via M.H. that it was the second time. It happened once before in 67 or 69'.

Yippers TE it would be NICE if today was the top, I covered my Spoo calls at 1117-am now flat-looking to short (you know where) 1102. For those owning HUGO and IVAN as I do no one can cement a deal like Bob Friedland and ensure the competition gets locked out-from todays Financial Post-"Ivanhoe Mines has bought $50 Million dollars of Mongolian T-Bills to help the former Communist Country retire Soviet era debt held by the Russian population." Watch Hugo run now. Also this " China set to revalue Yuan" "The Chinese Government will likely loosen the reins on the yuan, allowing the currency to flucuate to head off inflation-say currency anal cysts. The article goes on to say they will likely do it this year as their GDP for 04 is expected to rise 8.6% it is expected they will allow it flucuate AGAINST A BASKET OF CURRENCIES> in other words they don't want the Greenback. Now this is what Snow wanted but I would suggest his wet dream will become a nightmare when the peg is lifted. Trade safe! ;)

During the deflation scare of 2001 and 2002, the market craved any indication of economic strength. Stocks and bond yields would rise together.


The pattern persisted as late as this autumn, when the market cheered the 7.1% 3rd quarter GDP blowout, subsequently revised to 8.2% growth.


Even this morning, the blowout ISM number announced at 10:00 a.m. started to provoke the usual Boner Run. But something went wrong ... bonds got croaked, and the stock market actually fell together with those rising yields.


That's the old inflationary pattern, which ruled the intermarket relationship from the early Fifties until Oct. 1998. Since then it has often 'flown upside down' on deflation fears. But today was like old times again. Have we crossed a watershed?


If the prevailing fear shifts from deflation to inflation, the stock market will be crushed. The S&P can offer a paltry earnings yield of 3% only because safe Treasury yields are low across the yield curve. Rising Treasury yields will pull the plug on the Washington/Wall Street Ponzi scheme with brutal efficacy.


The top-grossing horror film of 2004 may turn out to be "Revenge of the Bond Vigilantes." They are not known to be advocates of 'humane slaughter,' either.

"I'll have some more beans Mr. Taggart!"


"I think you've had ENOUGH!"

Can any expert have a look at NWS on stockcharts and tell me is this a head and shoulders pattern forming or a potential double top and how do you tell?


PS I have taken the plunge and am trying to learn TA.

Nice call on "Parallel Pete", Meta



Now this one is just cruising for a monster breakout. In fact, it is the only stock that produces a head-shoulders pattern when you do a 10-year POG:DROOY ratio....indicating that it will handily outperform the metal in the intermediate term. Another one of Weinstein's 'outstanding setups'.....but patience is needed....next purchase points are 3.54, 3.84 and 4.38. We surpassed 3.22 today and I bought with both hands.


I'm riding this into high double digits :P


DROOY monthly

I am not a pro by any means (I know nothing, and this year proved that). The right shoulder seems a bit high but, volume looks about right.

ECRI growth rate is dropping but their comment offers little hope for any give in the economy

"We have not seen the WLI growth rate stay at such a high level for such a long time in two decades, it is clearly pointing to resilient growth," said ECRI managing director Lakshman Achuthan. "



While most bond investors fear inflation, the paramter most correlated with bond performance is growth. If that relationship holds true, we can have a major bond selloff without inflation if growth remains very strong.

The bond market remains the market policeman here, but I fear he is now on the take.

MH- Still believe they're(ISM) 'directional', not 'magnitudinal',

indicators.And, no matter what the past 'correlation' is, the GDP #'s,

at least quarterly, are "statistical flatulence"-to get the 'annualized'

growth rate, they annualize the rate of change between two #'s that

are reported on an annual basis(may meet some bizarre rule of stat-

istics but violates plain common sense)-even though they don't do this

to corporate pfofits #'s in the same report;the now well-known hedonic

pricing trick;, and maintaining a high level of government spending-

while defense spending didn't grow in Q3 after Q2's explosion, by run-

ning at the same high rate it didn't create a 'gap' to be made up elsewhere.

More than anything, just looking around tells you a lot. I've talked to about

two dozen different business people, mainly small business folks and some

professional service(accounting,etc) people, since the first GDP fart at Hall-

oween and the clear consensus is that "things are better than 6-9 months

ago but they're mediocre overall and not back to 3, 4,5 years ago"

and the job market is 'poor'(maybe up from terrible but not even ok yet)

overall. Where there is a variation, it's that things have yet to improve-

one person I asked oversees a group of small business lenders and they

agreed with the above consensus but said about 25% of their clients had seen

continued deterioration throughout '03 for 3 straight declining years in a row.

I did talk to a guy from IBM accidentally(sat next to him in a Panera waiting

for someone else and politely inserted myself into his discussion for a bit) a

few weeks back-he's a 'marketing planner' and said for '04 they were seeing

their customers spend on replacement where needed but no major

upgrading going on, and agreed with 'mediocre' as an appropriate adjec-


All the crazed stimulus of the past three years and things are mediocre-and

people know it, no matter how sushi-fresh the farts out of Mama-San Chao's

statistical chiropractory.

Dunno if anyone already posted this from Jim Sinclair's site.


"How Far Can Gold Go Now? Here is the Answer: As long as the US Federal Reserve holds the shortest term interest rates at 1%, gold will continue higher.? This is a direct quote from one of the most prestigious international investment banks that was sent last week to their preferred (that means huge) clients. Therefore, there is no limit to the price of gold as long as the Fed holds 1%."


I picked it up on a Dutch site doing a review of US market gurus FWIW.

Recommending fiber optic/telecom longs now.


Complete apology found here:

So, what was he saying when many telcom golden crosses occurred last January??


e.g. weekly LU.




These idiots would not write crap, if they could trade properly and, as Doc says, just follow the indicators. When you don't have significant coin on the table, it is easy to miss these things. This is simpleton mathematics and game theory.
