More reason to ignore seasonal adjustments: Headlines point to a sharp drop in initial jobless claims last week, sending the tally to the lowest level since 1969. Stripping out the manipulation, we are seeing the largest one week increase in claims in over a month as the year-to-date change starts to flat-line. Initial claims actually sit at 258,622, up 18,187 from the week prior. $MACRO $STUDY $ECONOMY $EMPLOYMENT

  2. Ron/BC Says:

    I came across this comment and thought everyone should think about this:

    “Learn to have no loyalty to your positions.”
    How many time have you heard someone who is up to his ears in stocks say after a sell off:
    “It’ll come baaaaaaaaaaaak”. And always with a desperate whine to their voice. Lots of times a market will come back for awhile but at some point when everyone is in love with stocks and “all in” the market will selloff hard for a very long time until all hope is lost. That’s when you don’t talk about stocks to them anymore. And the low will be in when even they stop defending the market………………

    re: #2
    So true Ron.
    A collateral to that thought is a quote I often remind myself of when holding a loosing position:
    “Things are never so bad that they can’t get worse. But they are sometimes so bad that they can’t get better.” Mignon McLaughlin

  4. Larry/ON Says:

    Re 2 and 3 – When the pandemic started and the you know what hit the fan I was overseas and my first concern was getting earlier return tickets for my family to come home after JT told us all to do so. I was all in the market and I rode it all the way down and all the way back up and had my best year ever.

    Bull markets are full of regretful sellers. If you were smart enough to take some off the table earlier in the week (and I did specifically mention this on Monday) you have opportunity to buy at lower levels. If you did not already do so you are now in no-mans land. The market likely drops on Monday and we are quickly close to support at the 50day MA. Are you nimble enough to buy back in before prices reverse. How far do they go? You can’t be sure. If you do sell the best is to buy back in too early rather than risk a market whiplash that leaves you with no gain for your transaction and possibly with the prospect of buying back higher. Panic selling is great for bottom feeding big money who will be waiting with open arms. This is a bull market.

    re: 4
    Difference of opinion is good. That is why there is a market.

  6. Ron/bc Says:

    #2 very correct.Ive found over the decades the investors who insist on the market recovering all the time are up to their ass in stock and can’t accept the idea of a lasting major selloff no matter how smart or successful they have been. They are blinded by their past successes and will actually get angry at anyone that differs with them. I’ve known many like that.No point in arguing with them as they are blind to the change in trend. My old business partner was like that so we wouldn’t talk about his positions that were plunging. I’d tell him it’s not a marriage but just an affair so get over it and yourself.

  7. Larry/ON Says:

    Omicron – The information so far is that the infected have mild symptoms and it has not been associated with more severe cases of Covid. In a pandemic this historically is the course as viruses become less severe in an effort to increase transmissibility as severity and transmissibility usually have an inverse relationship. Early days but if Omicron is milder and can push out Delta as the dominant mutation that would be interesting. Enough rose colour epidemiology from me.

  8. Ron/bc Says:

    It’s amazing how clear it becomes once you’ve dumped your loser stock and are free to think rationally again.

  9. Ron/bc Says:

    #3 I learned that decades ago. “NEVER HOLD A LOSING POSITION”.There is always a “STORY” to explain it all away. I posted here a week ago about a major sell-off overdue. Recall:TIMBERRRRRR. And I’m no stock guru.No story needed to explain it all away.

  10. Niaomi Says:

    USD/CAD has had a good run this month. USD at 1.27 is right at resistance. Will it break or fail ? (again) Any thoughts out there?

  11. Rol Lew Says:

    “Global food prices hit the highest level in 10 years in October, marking an increase of more than 30% compared to the same period one year ago”

  12. Ron/BC Says:


    The only resistance I see on the $USD is price is at the Fibonacci 50% retracement level. Also the Oscillators are overbought. Not enough for a major selloff especially since it broke out over major resistance at 94.79. A pullback to that breakout point would be typical but not a sure thing. I am biased as I have all my RIF money in U.S.$ so wont be as objective as perhaps I should be. (human nature). Here is the chart with the $CDW overlaid in pink and GLD overlaid in gold for reference. Also the seasonal trend chart link below. Unfortunately the seasonal trend for December according to this Seasonal chart is very bearish. As always draw your own conclusions………….

    And here is the $USD compared to the $XEU

  13. Ron/BC Says:

    As strong as the sell off was Friday there was no major damage to the $SPX chart yet.
