November 27, 2009 – Comments (2)

While you were eating yesterday the rest of the world was watching the financial system.  Maybe you remember when the mortgage crisis almost upset the apple cart.  Well I and many others have been waiting for either the banking system to be "fixed" or for the other shoe to drop.  [more]

Buen ' Dia', Nov 5 : Running on Fumes

The economy is like a car on a trip…it goes up hills, down hills, speeds up, slows down, etc.  A car is fueled by the gas tank and the gas from that tank is absolutely necessary to keep the car going.  On board you have an extra jerry can that can be used for temporary help but along the way the car must fuel up; but of course the limitation is the gas tank.  [more]



Buen ' Dia, Oct 28 : Who knows where this market is headed?

Many folks are interested in knowing if we are at or near a top.  For a great explanation of what is a top and why should we care see this.  I also gave you an idea of what very bearish scenario top would look like.  Now assuming you care what clues do we have?  You have been reading many ideas from valuation to tech analysis that say the top is in or very near.  But with the S&P continuing to make new highs how do you know who to listen to.  Here is a secret for you.  Russell knows.  That’s right the Russell2000 gets it right even when the S&P can’t figure it out.  Why?: Because 2000 small caps are not as likely to be swayed by emotion or the direction of the wind.  Be cause I have been looking for a top since August, when the S & P made a new high of  1100 and then 1103 recently I consulted with my good friend Russell(2000) and he wasn’t seeing it that way.  He thinks the top was September and explained it by refusing to reach a new intra day high.  Not only that; he has been diverging from the S&P ever since then.  Check out the graphs in the comment section to see if you should listen to Russell(2000).  [more]
