    Every morning I read about 20 news sites from around the world, in French and in English. I was reading about Australia raising their interest rates by only 25 basis points, less than previous hike. All Federal reserve bankers around the world talk to each other, they do not operate in a vacuum. Then I was thinking that November is the Mid-Term elections in the US and historically, the FEDs do not want to appear political, so they do not usually do anything harsh during election times. BOC meets Oct. 26, FED Nov 1-2. That got me thinking that perhaps, the Fed will stand pat, or raise a token 25 basis point. The markets will interpret this as bullish.

    If inflation and employment numbers in the coming few days and weeks come down, which would be better than expected, showing inflation slowing and unemployment rising, it will be interpreted as bullish, meaning the FED’s job is almost done with hikes. Does not have to be by much.

    Last week I noted that usually, the last 1 or 2 days of the month, and even more so the last day of the quarter, are usually negative as per reasons noted previously. The next business day, the first trading day of the month is usually bullish. So Monday bullishness was no surprise to me. The sentiment was so universally bearish last week and all of last month, that we had to see a flip to the other side this month. This is psychological, as per the theme in “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds”.

    November, running until the end of the year, is usually pretty good for the markets.

    I am beginning to suspect that this “Double Bottom” on the S&P is real and will hold, this year anyway. It sure seems to be classic. In any case, I am about 25% cash now, major buys last week, a couple this week. Still some good buys out there, from a fundamental point of view.

  6. Canuck2004 Says:

    Bruce…Just posting what I’m thinking and what I’m doing. I’m not going to name the names I bought, for various reasons.

    However, I’ll tell you about one name in particular: in 2018 during the last rate hike cycle, it hit a multi-year low, dropped 13.3% from its 52 week high; during the 2020 COVID crash it was down 20.4% from its 52 week high, and last week it was down 17.4% from its 52 week high…good enough for me. I don’t have to get the absolute lowest price, the old yard stick analogy, all I want is a good 2 feet in the middle. This is a company with solid earnings and solid dividend growth history, what’s not to like?

    Maybe I’ll regret it, maybe not. I’m happy with the price I got on all my recent buys, all good solid companies, large caps with solid dividend growth profiles. If I’m wrong, I’ll get paid while I wait. I can always average down….

    Starting tomorrow, we should see a little consolidation over the next few days from the massive gains this past 2 days.
