Everyone piling in.....

Sentiment is extreme and dippers are aggressive,there are few that see any downside.

Nobody gives a shit,why bother trying to help?

Dumped most of my bond portfolio.....

My third time with cash in the portfolio in 16 months,biggest cash postion in years.It's been an amazing run,although i will probably miss some upside.....Still shopping for deals if they pop up,I do get lucky sometimes.


Thank the lord my broker convinced me to pile into more bonds after I unloaded most in late June/early July.Going further out on the curve and down a few credit notches paid off huge.I really did not want to get back in at the time.

Treasury/muni spreads are still historically high,but I just HAD to ring the register. -_-

Sing it Bears!
(to the tune of "Like a Virgin")
I made it through the retest
Somehow I made it through

I didn't realize how screwed I was
Until I met you.

I've been beat by the Street
I've been had, I am sad and blue
Now you make me feel
Yeah you make me feel, well and truly screwed

Like a divergence
Even though all assets still climbed
Like a divergence
Where the next uptick
Took my very last dime

You see I bought the rally
I bought it through and through
I didn't know "distribution"
Until I met you

Lee I just listened to podcast and whats interesting is homebuilder stocks are on a tear. Based on your comments we are scrapping the bottom however the slight improvements are being extrapolated by investors. Was wondering what you thought of homebuilder stock index thanks

XHB? Mostly retail home furnishings and building supply manufacturers. Actual builder weighting is less than 20%.

I don't know what they are extrapolating. The data is still horrible. No improvement whatsoever. Housing prices making new lows all the time. How they construe that as bullish is beyond my comprehension.

The chart is bullish as hell though. Might be headed for 21. None of this is really about fundamentals. It's about an excess of liquidity. Be forewarned. That's how all bull markets begin.

I think they are extrapolating the misleading headlines on housing. The real, effective demand just is not there.

I'd really appreciate it if a few of you who are not already subscribers would sign up for the podcasts as a way of showing your support, not only for our efforts, but for this website as well. I think that not only will you get real value and real information from them, but that you'll find them quite enjoyable.

Thank you.

What were you holding? TZA?
I'm still short ES from yesterday at 1286.50.
Stop on a move above 1293.

Trade safe.
