    Small caps lead sell offs during recessions and lead up during recoveries. Small caps (i.e. $^RUT )has been stagnant for half a year, and in fact was trending down (lower highs lower lows). Yet, it's now starting to move up and looks like it'll break this trading range and move higher. This suggests the rest of the market will follow small caps up.

    I hope that everyone has read Chapter 1 & 2 from the book "The Intelligent Investor" on Investment vs. Speculation & Inflation. You will understand where the market currently is and what will happen in the near future with increasing inflation and eventual increase in interest rates.

    Hey guys, just wondering how much you guys are up YTD or since the market crashed in late Feb. Just curious. If you're not comfortable listing a % gain/loss, you can simply note you're at a loss or a gain since (x date). We're all here to make money, so I hope you all are.

    Hoping the administration could step in and help protect innovative Phase2 advanced companies that will contribute to/put as ahead in our future health, against shorts, and hedge-funds: could be incentives, higher short-interestrates/short-transaction costs or something. Otherwise, our innovative companies will become so cheap they will get bought by foreign entities in some form (i hear some closeness happening in few companies I have been tracking) or other and we will be paying 'tributes' to them forever (with the money hedges made by shorting, of course, common man from their pocket/sweat money for medicine).

    Till then, even good progress-making healthcare/biotech companies in $xbi, $^RUT, $urty, $tqqq are at the mercy of shorts, hedgies (and of course the daytraders aka the daylabourers that will sell their soul to whoever pays them on that day). Enjoy the slumber!

    OK OK, the S&P broke support today. It started off good, but I think Dr. Fauci's testimony about reopening too early causing more death and destruction spooked the market. Sold all longs a few mins ago and went to $TVIX and some $SQQQ. After all, the market only went up on hope/hype of a reopening.

    If economy is still heating up and stock is booming again, the Fed has no reason to hold off rate increase, they will keep raising interest rate in 2019. Remember the NY Fed says they are willing to consider keeping interest rate the same IF market data shows we are slowing. So if stocks is soaring, then there will be more interest rate increases in 2019. Understand cause and consequences and invest carefully. $^GSPC $^DJI $^RUT

    "Powell likely going to have to raise interest rates."

    Yes. As inflation increases, the way to curb it is through raising interest rates. The fed originally stated that rates weren't going to rise until at least 2022. However, it seems that we may see a rate increase sooner than expected.

    COVID deaths up. We will be hitting records in the next few days. Deficit spending up. Companies have decreased earnings, yet markets are at ATH. This is a classic bubble folks. S&P500 is worth half of what it is today, based on the Shiller P/E.

    There's a time horizon risk when a limited set of data points is applied. Apply an interval of not less than one year for any index or equity. Presently on that scale, $^RUT has an ADX reading of 35. Now there are three 'predictive' metrics that imply that the index is wandering into overbought territory. And that's to be expected. It's part of any normal technical cycle. Markets are perpetually attempting to reach a state of equilibrium. But it can also be seen that since 24Sep2020 when the index crossed above the 200-day ma that higher lows, as well as higher highs, have been sustained. The trend was confirmed when as of 30Oct2020 the index bounced off of and then cleared the 50-day ma. On the shortest functional time horizon of five days, both the stochastic momentum and RSI indicators imply an oversold condition. The ADX is still in a highly desirable range @ 25. A voluminous amount of data has to be applied in order to come to reasonable assessments about market activity

    Judge should overturn the tax free unemployment income from 2020 next. It's theft to get 10k and not pay any tax while someone who works for 10k must pay tax.

    California is not bankrupt but it is insolvent. California’s liabilities vastly exceed its assets. A State cannot declare bankruptcy but that may change someday. See, The Case for Allowing U.S. States to Declare Bankruptcy

    California has an unfunded pension liability estimated by some to be half a trillion dollars. See, California’s unfunded pension debts may be larger than acknowledged Here is one observer that says the debt is well over a trillion. Golden State Pension Deficit: $1.2 Trillion

    Essentially, in order to have anyone willing to work a California government job—whether state, county or local, rather than pay up front, governmental organizations have hidden their rich benefits from the public by granting modest salaries but huge pensions.

    These pension rights are staggering. Your typical firefighter in California retires with an income that would require a self-employed person to have saved over $3.5 million dollars to earn. An appropriate pay-as-you-go salary that would take the value of the promised pension and pay it up front would have most state employees taking home well over $500,000 per year. Politicians know that they are making promises they can’t keep, but the California miracle just keeps chugging along—they make just barely enough to pay their pension obligations and keep the state running, barely.

    A dentist in one of California’s prisons retired at a salary of over $650,000 a year. See, California’s unfunded pension debts may be larger than acknowledged There are currently over twenty thousand people drawing a more than six-figure pension from the State of California’s pension fund. http://reason.com/blog/2016/08/09/californias-six-figure-pension-club

    Look up what happened in the City of Bell. The City Manager and Police Chief voted themselves some incredible salaries and benefits because the citizens didn’t know enough about their government to object. http://timelines.latimes.com/bell/ In my opinion, exactly the same thing is happening in the State of California albeit on an exponentially larger scale, i.e. more dollars, more workers.

    As did the citizens of Bell, the day will come when the good folk of California finally understand the sheer size and scope of the bill they have incurred for the retirement benefits secured by the various government workers’ unions. There was a brief glimmer of hope when Arnold tried to break the union’s power in this area, but that failed. All Four of Schwarzenegger's Ballot Initiatives Fail Had Arnold limited his reformatory efforts to just the unions, there may have been hope for the state. However, at present it is all but guaranteed that the State of California will have to restructure its obligations, i.e. default on its pensions.

    Now, some people disagree. Some believe that California is such a huge and independent economy that it can, in essence, print its own money. Others are convinced that the State is too big to fail. Observers of our financial history will note that most large institutions in the United States are not allowed to fail—the federal government will ride to the rescue and force the state to scale back.

    And, where does all the California Pension money end up? Most of the pensioners leave California and buy properties in other western states where the living is cheaper. In a real way, California’s taxpayers are subsidizing the economies of most of the intermountain west. Why CalPERS retirees flee California

    There is a terrible disaster on the horizon—it will inflict incredible suffering on many innocent families who rely on California to keep its pension promises.

    Well, back to short today after that little dead cat bounce this morning. Oil tanking like this is one of those financial crisis I was saying before that would be a turning point in the market. And since it sold off slightly above the 50% retrace level without breaching significantly above it, that's a huge sell signal. Next support level will be 2,650 on the S&P. If that fails, 2,450s, and if that fails, the 2,200 lows. Before ya'll go yammering about "I told you so", guess what? I already made bank going up from 2,450s to 2,800, so I should be the one saying "I told YOU so". Plus haters have lost more shorting when the market went up. :p Play both ways. Never fall in love with any stock, or any position you're in because the stock market won't love you back.
