Madness:

Cramer Thinks Netflix’s price bump means Amazon, Apple’s stocks are bargains Saw that dumb headline and I couldn’t believe it. The FANG pumper is at it again. “Every month I pay Apple to back up my photos and insure my phones. Don’t you? Every month I pay [for] Apple Music,” Cramer said. These are services that will decline in cost rapidly if Cramer took an economics class in high school. Its a consumer attitude like Cramer’s that makes me shake my head. Why should consumers give in? Why should someone give toxic advice to accept whatever the vendor charges. You … Continue reading Madness:

Fade the Gap: 1/2/2019

The play: short morning gaps as long as VIX continues to decline. Need to understand that a weakening VIX in a bear market create intraday bull traps.

FED Tells Investors to Take A Hike, Dow nears 52 Low

Get your money outta here! Going back to June 22, 2011, the Fed has now raised the rates nine times in a row, and their fourth hike this year. Government doesn’t trust you with their money. Good one. I think the Fed is trying to make up for their Operation Twist experiment, with their Quantitative Easing. Watch out as inflationary pressure bleeds over to the broad market. Looking at the week chart for the Dow does not look healthy. Low volume rallies getting wiped out by weak dip-buyers who sell at every news reel. If I saw that chart above … Continue reading FED Tells Investors to Take A Hike, Dow nears 52 Low
