Thinking Ahead for Trading Next Week

Mish's Daily

The market took another turn for the worse this past week, with four weeks in a row in the red and the DOW futures dropping, testing significant support from the summer.

With the upcoming Fed meeting and higher rates coming to control inflation, we are watching a few themes.

Here are Five Themes to Trade Next Week:

  1. Stock or Bonds? Or both? Neither? Not only have stocks lost significant value, but the long bonds TLT performed just as poorly. But maybe that is about change?

The long bonds, or TLTs, are potentially bottoming, and investors tend to buy TLTs to avoid losses in their portfolio.  If so, what does this mean for the US dollar? Duration? Growth?

  1. Commodities continue to outperform the SPY (silver outperforms gold, and gold is already outperforming SPY).

This means that although silver and gold prices may be volatile, they are to retain more value for your dollar. Could commodities be waking up and precious metals leading the way?

  1. Food prices remain high, and the cost of groceries continues to increase rapidly. Food inflation can have far-reaching consequences for both individuals and economies. Inflation is the silent killer of your wealth.

The value of money is eroding almost daily, so essential to invest in inflation hedges, specifically in areas of food, and there are several ways to trade, protect, and profit from inflation.

  1. The 1978-1980 trading range in the indices supplants the fears of a major crash. A trading range is when the prices of an asset become restricted within upper and lower limits for a sustained period of months or even years. In other words, trade price and not fear.


  1. China waking up or potentially going back to sleep. Investors and CEOs alike are worried about the future of the Chinese economy. With a slowing economy, growing unemployment, and an impossible ZERO COVID policy, China is wobbling right alongside their property market.

There are a lot of factors weighing on the market and these five themes are important to watch and more importantly to trade them  as the Fed meets next week.

As always, watch the price charts.
