SpreadTraders Bulldozed

Recommended Posts

One day, the "As Good As It Gets" interest rate environment had to come to a close.

 

Today was the day.

 

Spreadtraders were crushed and rolled by a bulldozer, as spreads were blowing out, Emerging Market Exotica were falling off a cliff, and Junk Bonds were in full collapse mode.

 

As usual, Stocks are always the last "to get it".

 

Until today.

 

Now we get to see all the White Shoes start to get some sweat on their foreheads.

 

Any Hamptons outings this spring???

 

Looking for many of the high rent reservations to get cancelled.

 

The Russian Escorts will have to pile into a Cadillac and head down to Myrtle Beach.

 

Good Riddance to the Leveraged Carry Trade Crowd.

I have a few thoughts after watching the action today:

 

Never react to the market when it has already moved.

Your risk/reward has already gone down considerably.

Many times the risk has become greater than the

reward. Never get greedy and never chase.

 

You need to be positioned before the fact or you don't

take the trade. The most important thing is to protect

your capital. Ask yourself how much you can lose

before pulling the trigger.

 

And if you were wrong when jumping in, never, I repeat

never switch and go long if you were short or short if

you were long just to get even. The odds are just as

likely that you are wrong again.

 

After an impulse wave you'll have some choppiness

until the market makes up its mind on which way the

next move will be. Watch the consolidation and plan

for the next move.

 

Never put a trade in if your heart is beating faster

than 60 beats per minute :)

 

When you act on emotions you don't act rationally. When

you act on emotions you are the herd. Sheep get slaughtered.

You need to be coldly calculated to survive in the market.

Wndy...you know those beads of sweat trader pictures they show on Reuters after days like this....

 

Well here is my Zoo Animal version...

Of course, no mention at all about the "High-Multiple Stock Craze" that got it up there in the first place ... :lol:

You guys see the runoff?

They knocked it down for another 3 spoos.

Still a puny decline today with regards to the internals.

Huge damage these last 4 weeks and noone has a clue...

Former SF Bay Area tech workers went to real estate when they lost their tech jobs. If rates continue to rise and the RE market falls down, what will they do next? They guys who buy a new Ford F-350 and then slap a magnetic contracting company sign on the side are going to be screwed too. Starbucks and Home depot have plenty of locations and employees, they can't hire many more.

 

Right now there is no Next Big Thing in silicon valley. The tech companies are focusing on protecting the stock options racket from the FASB. I'll post something on that when I get home tonight, employees where I work are being lobbied by the CEO to write the FASB and beg that options not be required to be expensed. Form letters have been written and distributed to employees even.

 

I fear that carnage round II is approaching. If more people leave town, maybe my rent will go down another 20%. :lol:
