Another day spent digging in the trash
This morning’s perusal through the usual suspects of finance, leaves the feeling you’re sifting through garbage.
Every once in a while, like yesterday’s post, there’s something useful.
Most times, not.
Today is no different.
Here we have an article about the ‘bond bloodbath’ and how inflation is not transitory.
Instead of falling into the trap of contesting the current false narrative, we’ll take a different approach.
How can the constant stream of financial nonsense, lies and miss-direction, be put to use?
Since the article linked above is about bonds, we’ll use that for our example.
The Bond Market (TLT):
First, the David Weis training video (linked here) has been discussed many times over the years.
We can’t make recommendations but we will make a suggestion; that is, whatever the video costs at this point is well worth it.
Our TLT market entry technique (below), is taken from that video (not advice, not a recommendation).
We’ll start with an unmarked chart of TLT. The ‘bloodbath’ referred to in the link above, is yesterday’s down-draft.
Steven Van Metre has already laid the fundamental groundwork (for about a year) on why bonds will rally.
We’re there now but the market’s not going to let anyone get positioned long easily.
The next chart shows how the Weis technique can be used to get aboard the rally.
Yesterday’s so-called bloodbath, is really a trade entry set-up.
Notice how the market does not come back to the ‘entry’ levels. This chart fits the Weis example to perfection.
The bond market’s signaling there’s something very wrong with the ‘reflation’ or ‘re-opening’ trade.
The reflation, re-opening does not exist.
The economy is not coming back.
It took over twenty years of searching to stumble across the Weis video. As with a lot of things in life, it was almost by accident.
After watching him dissect the ‘Apache Spring’ (APA) trade, it was obvious the search for ‘truth’ had ended; the education was about to begin.
