The Market Runs Rich

The Market begins to show some overexuberance as we head into earning season and the election date closes in.

Amazon prime day and an apple event are scheduled this week with other companies, like Target and Walmart joining in with their own sale events to compete.

This could make for a push in the retail sector as companies gear up for an increase in online sales.

Along with retail, the homebuilders sector XHB holds a 76.39% gain over the past 6 months.

This sector has grown with the pandemic as many who are working from home now have more free time and incentive to upgrade their home/workspace.

It should also be noted that MarketGauges Risk Gauge has remained bullish.


The (VXX) short term volatility, which is used as a fear indicator in the market broke down last week as the market rallied.

Today the VXX showed small amounts of movement taking more of a complacent stance.

KRE Regional banks which has been considered the weakest link awaits the start of earnings season, with the big banks up first.

Bottom line, is that while tech made a huge run today, banks have stalled, and energy continues to drag.

The market is shrugging off all negativity as the stimulus has yet to pass, the divide of the country grows with the Supreme Court confirmations and Covid-19 continues to spread.

We reached a target in our quant model today for the NASDAQ. Additionally, we reached profits in emerging market positions along with a stock in consumer discretionary.

And that is the point-taking profits into the euphoria makes sense. Tightening stops on all positions makes sense. And watching to see what the dollar does plus whether the EU goes the way of negative rates, also makes sense.

In a house of cards, volatility can happen at blinding speeds.
