    the AAII bulls dropped again this past week to 19.4% from 22.8…..the bears are at 52.8% up from 46.7 previously…….they must be loaded with cash or is the public saying one thing and doing something else?….

  2. Michel Brisebois Says:

    As long as Interest Rates are rising the Markets will continue to struggle….In my trading accounts, I’ve been in cash instruments (Money Markets ETFs, etc.) since sometime in May, yields are growing as rates rise, unit prices stay the same more or less…a penny here and there. Short term money is outperforming the markets anyway. No loss of capital, 100% safety and a growing yield, what’s not to like?

    In my opinion, pointless to trade when the Markets are working against me. I shorted for a while did OK, and did some short term swing trades for the relief rallies for a few days, here and there, but nothing spectacular…hardly worth the trouble, so sometime in May I gave up. Markets not really logical, Charts do not help, no place to hide in equities, volatility is too high. Better to stand aside and wait for the final “Capitulation Low”, which will come eventually, to punctuate the end of the Bear Market. I’ve seen all this before. I’m just darn too lazy…lol. I like a sure thing, I can wait. This is a classic Bear Market, always grinding lower and lower, with the occasional relief rally.

    In 2020, I bought the COVID Correction, on heavy margin, and the recovery, did very well, over a 400% net gain over 14 months. I am not giving it back. Cashed out late last August, like I usually do. My 40 years experience have taught me that usually after the Labour Day week-end, the markets sell-off as the big boys are back at their desks, especially true if the Summer has been Bullish. If I’m occasionally wrong, I can always buy back, but at least I booked some nice profits that I get to keep. Nothing like cleaning house once in a while. I bought back some last Fall, but they were different names, lots of O&G. I could see the strength in the market, and anyway, O&G always outperform at the top of the economic and market cycles anyway. No secret.

    Some pundits claim that the 2020 COVID correction was a Bear market, but I wouldn’t say so…we dropped violently very fast, were at the bottom for a only a week, with a very nice long Hammer CandleStick to punctuate the low, and then the markets recovered up from there….a great buying opportunity. A temporary irrational Freak-Out moment. Got to love those. A no brainer.

    We will see another great buying opportunity soon when the Fed and BOC finish their rate hikes, whenever that is. Right now, inflation is out of control, accelerating rather than decelerating, and the Fed nearly always over shoot, so we will get a Recession. No soft-Landing, very rare. We will see if next week BOC raise .75 basis points or 100 as some are calling for. In any case, the BOC and the FED are panicking, always a clue for catastrophic results.

    In TFSA, same as usual, re-investing dividends as they come in, twice a month. Adding about 25% to each of my 50 plus names to book value, all equal weight, as I move along. Almost done, just a couple more to do. Dollar cost averaging in that account. Cashflow has been very good. Hard to calculate as I add the maximum very year, but it’s all the same names as I have in my RRSP, so that I can calculate easily since I have been retired for 11 years and no new money has been added there. This year over last year, my RRSP dividends grew by 9.3% so far, and the year is not yet finished. Beats inflation. When was the last time anybody got a 9.3% raise in salary?….lol..can’t beat it. Cap gains come and go, but the important thing is the dividend cash flow….with 50 plus names, equal weight, it’s secure. I’ll be RRIFing soon, so I have been taking most of my RRSP dividend cash flow out, to spend on various things and to top up my TFSA.

    Anyway, that’s all I have to say, will be back when things get interesting.
