Too Many Damn Setups

I’m having way too much fun this morning, which accounts for my somewhat belated post. There literally seem to be juicy setups crawling out of the woodwork and I just kept adding new ones while reducing exposure on others in order to reduce correlation risk. So without further ado let’s jump right in:

Santa’s In The House!

Santa apparently came early this year and he’s ready to play! I hope you haven’t been naughty and stuck with our script or he may be paying you a special reeducation visit. Alright we’ve got setups setups setups! Equities seem to have held up well overnight and we seem to be on course for a continued squeeze higher.

The only fly in my ointment was the rather marginal Zero signal post FOMC announcement.

Simple Trend Trades

I’m going to keep it super simple today. Over the past few months we have observed increasing evidence of two medium trend shifts – a swing down on the equities and a push up on the bond side. My simple modus operandi going forward is to wait for short term trend trading opportunities in order to be positioned if/once we finally see acceleration. Yeah, I know – hopefully sometime this year – it’s been painful.

Bonds have been on a strong trajectory higher but have pulled back a little over the past few sessions. From here we either revisit the 100-day SMA or we proceed higher in the near term future. I’m currently long the ZB but [...]
