The SKEW Must Flow!

An old friend wrote me over the weekend asking whether or not it was finally time to back up the truck and short the heck out of this market. My response to him basically boiled down to ‘never step in front of a speeding freight train’ – however true to form I did provide him with a few valuable pointers. Which I thought may actually make for a good post, so if you happen to currently suffer form bearish inclinations I suggest you put down your mobile enslavement gadget and pay attention.

Look Behind The Curtain

Given all the political drama drowning out any common sense at the current time I wouldn’t blame you for having missed the news. Turns out 140,000 jobs were lost in December alone and I fear things may only get worse from here. Unfortunately if 2020 reconfirmed anything then would be to never underestimate the market’s ability to fade structural economic problems of tectonic proportions. However as the old saying goes: you can run but you can’t hide (forever) as we are now starting to see the first emerging cracks.
