Don't Get Caught In The Market's Confusion

August 3, 2022

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


Written by Mish Schneider For the moment, the stock market continues to defy the notion that inflation or slower economic growth is hurting US businesses. Corporate earnings have slightly underperformed, but the stock market has continued on a trajectory upwards since the middle of July. Technology (XLK) was today's best performing sector, logging 2.66% daily gains, and is one of the best sectors driving this market. With technology leading the way, it is no surprise

March 28, 2022

Trades & Tutorials, by Geoff Bysshe


In May of 2021 I outlined a dangerous condition of excessive margin debt that looked remarkably similar to only two other periods in the last 3 decades – 2000 and 2007. You may recall that both of those periods didn’t end well for the bulls. At the time of the post, however, the rate of margin debt growth was at record levels and still growing, and as I noted at the time… While margin debt

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider

In stagflation, cash and bonds are usually below the rate of inflation, while certain stocks might not fare much better. It is important to invest into assets that will keep up with the rate of inflation. The US economy is in a state of stagflation and it's been that

August 1, 2022

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider

Still, their one-day individual parabolic rise merits closer attention. Could this be a new trend or just a one-day wonder? Using the Gold ETF (GLD) as a proxy for returns, the price surged much higher on Friday, July 29. Furthermore, after the Fed raised interest rates, the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) also

WARNING SIGNS ON THE INCREASE

July 24, 2022

Weekly Market Outlook, by Keith Schneider and Donn Goodman


It was a positive week in both the stock and bond markets as investors stepped back in. Earnings reports in some sectors (financials) were not as weak as some expected, and there continues to be interim cooling of inflation (gas down the past month). Also, Bank of America’s Global Fund Manager survey shows extreme bearish sentiment readings, a contrarian indicator.

July 31, 2022

Mish's Daily, by Mish Schneider


The stock market rally continued to show strength into Friday moving decisively higher on the week. Big tech and many other sectors shrugged off a post-Fed pullback plus some earlier in the week, bad earnings and poor guidance from Wal-Mart, Meta, and Qualcomm to mention a few. With Amazon, Apple, Microsoft all doing “better than feared”, even the “R” word could not stop the train in the indices, junk bonds and most sectors. Apple, considered

Economic news drives Wall Street especially updated critical data points pertaining to inflation, earnings, and interest rates. It has been a week of negative news on most of these fronts. Monday thru Wednesday, the stock market drifted lower on anticipated bad news on inflation. Hawkish rhetoric from a few Federal Reserve Governors exacerbated the situation.

Powell and crew raised the rates by .75 BPS in an attempt to continue the fight against inflation.
