Strategic Plan_20Good morning.
There’s an old Wall Street adage that a bull market doesn’t die of old age.  What does kill a bull market is when traders are all-in at the top and there aren’t any buyers left at absurd valuations.  Is that the case right now?  Probably not yet, given the amount of cash on the sidelines.
But we’re likely a step closer.  That’s based on the fact that one of the world’s most bearish hedge funds is closing up shop.  Russell Clark Management, a fund based on an overall short position in the market, is closing down.  That’s in spite of a short-term trading record that saw the fund make a profit most months, until the fund lost 35 percent in 2019, when markets had a strong rally.
With one less bearish voice out there, there’s less caution for bullish investors in the months ahead, which may indicate an eventual end to the current market rally next year.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Yo Yo MarketsGood morning.
Nothing ever moves in a straight line.  After two days of sharply declining, tech stocks rebounded on Wednesday.  The same stay-at-home tech trades that have fared well this year got a breather as news of high virus cases continued to come.  It also didn’t hurt these companies that a number of areas are looking to increase mask mandates and limit operations once again.
This lingering fear, coming so quickly on the heels of the announcement of a successful Covid vaccine, underscores how quick the market is to move on a piece of news — even if that news could take months to play out.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

It’s becoming clearer every day that the next ‘credit collapse’ is just around the corner…
According to credit-ratings agency Standard & Poors (S&P), 124 U.S. companies have defaulted on their debt so far this year.  But it’s going to get much worse… another 240 companies in the U.S. will go bankrupt over the next year.

People are not black or white!  No one person is 100% detail-oriented or the “in-a-nutshell” type.
You ask, “Shall we proceed or would you like more details?”

If they answer:

“Let’s get right to it.”  —  This means they want the big picture, and they don’t want to burden them-selves with knowing every specific detail of your product or service.  They think and act quickly, so you can persuade easily by simply emphasizing the main benefits and getting straight to the point.

“I’d like to study your proposal first before making my decision.”  —  This means they want to know all the facts, evidences, instructions, or details before jumping into any conclusion.  They are prone to analyze and be meticulous with details, so you can persuade them by giving them full documentations.

When persuading anyone, remember that you should always state your message in terms of their specific values and mindset.  Remember that they are always asking, “What’s in it for me?”  😉

Good morning. Monday’s reversal of Friday’s big market drop shows that fear of new Covid variants is waning.  While that may change as new data on the latest variant comes in, traders didn’t have to wait that long.  Instead, they’ve been following the BTD playbook – and buying the dip. That’s been a successful play in general.  After all, markets rise over time.  However, this trend has been on steroids since the start of the pandemic, following the shortest bear market in history and a rise in retail traders armed with stimulus checks and nowhere to go.  As long as

Good morning. The half day US markets are open the day after Thanksgiving is usually one of the quietest trading days of the year. 2021 delivered the worst one-day performance for stocks instead, as a new version of Covid out of South Africa, dubbed the “Nu” variant, appeared to be spreading. While the market has had a selloff and sentiment has flipped from bullish to bearish overnight, we’ve learned from the Delta variant that markets can be volatile, but will likely remain resilient.  Still, traders may want to lighted up on their most aggressive trades, even if that goes against

Enjoy Silence Eliminate a life of expectation.  Expect less from people, and disentangle yourself from obligations.  Learn to say no so you have more time and space to say yes to what you want in life. At home: Get rid of stuff you’re always moving from place to place.  If you don’t love everything around you, then toss it. Do your shopping once a week.  Those quick pit stops to the grocery store a few times a week take time away from something else. Do laundry less often.  Simplify your wardrobe, and you’ll have more pieces to mix and match.

Good morning. It’s been 624 days since “15 days to flatten the curve,” kicked off the part of the pandemic where the economy was deliberately shut down.  Unlike a light switch, however, it’s not the sort of thing to start back up again.  Trillions were spent propping up the economy with extended benefits and stimulus checks. The labor market is improving but still in disarray.  Inflation and job demand has pushed up wages, creating a “Great Resignation.”  And for all the time, effort, and money spent to create these new problems, those fortunate enough to invest in the stock market

Good morning, and Happy Thanksgiving. Oil prices somehow moved up on Tuesday, despite President Biden’s announcement that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve would be tapped, bringing 50 million barrels of oil onto the market on top of additional releases so far. The problem?  While that number sounds impressive, markets were pricing in 100 million barrels instead to really shock the market.  The move was small enough to earn a mocking note from Goldman Sachs (GS), which continues to see oil prices rising into 2022 on rising global demand, without even adding in factors such as inflation.  Prepare for more pain at

Good morning. No, it’s not a mythical creature from a game of Dungeons & Dragons or Lord of the Rings.  It’s a term for Organized Retail Crime.  And it’s on the rise. Pandemic-era mask mandates have made retail theft substantially easier.  And some jurisdictions such as in San Francisco have eliminated any criminal penalty or law enforcement resources for thefts under $950.  That’s caused a number of retailers to flag organized thieves, but at the cost of millions in inventory losses, including some who hit up multiple stores in some areas looking for items to resell cheaply online.
