    Hi Dutchcanuck,
    When you say…..
    a hedge in a sizeable “hybrid” short position in US treasuries
    can you pls explain a bit what hybrid means and what you are using?

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Risk on markets = USD down and vice versa
    US Fed was not overly hawkish yesterday so that does not put pressure on $CAD.
    Commodity prices continue to be in a huge bull market which historically is CAD supportive but less so recently.
    The only way USD moves higher is if the US equity market breaks down further but as of yesterday afternoon we have the opposite.

    the AAII is 26.9% bullish up from 16.4% last week….historical average is 38.0%..the bearish view dropped to 52.9% from 59.4….historically the average for the bears is 30.5%….

  4. RonBC Says:

    Wednesday’s big rally was a good example of a short covering rally……………..That’s what happens when short sellers panic on a perceived bullish news event.

  5. RonBC Says:

    The Weekly $SPX remains 500 PTS above its 200ema and 1200 PTS above its long term uptrendline. Anyone thinking this is OK and still bullish needs to read a book on technical analysis instead of day dreaming of profits. Reminds me of the song, “Dream on Little Broomstick Cowboy.”

    Energy is a different universe than the rest of the market which is hideous. It’s like being in a lifeboat while others around you are in the water some with lifejackets and some not. I thought energy as the last place to hide was possibly rolling over today for a needed pullback but money piled in when it dropped pushing prices back up.
