Biotech, Bricks In The Wall
This site’s been steadfast for over a year; biotech above all others, has the highest chance of sustained, long-term collapse.
‘Collapse’ is an overused word these days. It may have lost some meaning.
How about the word ‘exposure‘?
Biotech has the highest chance of being exposed (not advice, not a recommendation).
Sweden Suspends Moderna:
There it is out in the mainstream: Indefinite suspension.
About a week ago, the fist bullet item in this list discussed Moderna; that when price action reverses to the down-side (after being a market darling), the lawsuits start.
It’s not the lawsuits themselves, but the discovery process that’s part of the trial … if it goes to trial.
One can guess with some assurance, the last thing Moderna wants is for this baby (any potential lawsuit) to go to discovery and trial.
This could be one of those times, popcorn is justified; watching it all from the sidelines.
Southwest Backs Off:
Looks like greed is more powerful than jabs.
At least we can see the priorities and keep that for future reference.
Now, all-of-a-sudden, it makes no sense to destroy executive stock options with forced collapse of the organization.
Glad we have such genius executives in charge. 🙂
Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch:
While all that’s going on, we still have the financial press talking about earnings and sales and ‘pent up demand’ like any of that is important or actually real.
The only reality at this point in time, is the price.
Biotech SPBIO, Inverse Fund LABD Analysis:
We’re going to start with the un-marked chart of SPBIO:
Next, we’re going to invert that chart; giving a better perspective of what the inverse fund LABD, is tracking:
Repeating a previous observation; price action over the last two months (from late August to now), has calmed down.
Price range has narrowed and movement looks orderly.
Our take on this; bears have assumed control and are preparing (opening positions) for a directional move.
Compared to my firm and probably anyone reading, their capital is unlimited. They’re also patient.
Depending on the level of greed, they’re keeping price action from a major breakout until positioning is complete (not advice, not a recommendation).
Wyckoff termed this phenomenon (a century ago) as the ‘composite operator’, or the ‘central mind’.
This is how markets work. There’s no getting away from it.
By making a transaction, any transaction, one has implicitly entered the ‘arena’ where the gladiators (the professionals) are ready to take all you own.
Moving in a little closer, we already have a trend.
Price action bounced off support on Friday (resistance on the inverted chart) but closed nearly unchanged.
My firm remains short SPBIO via LABD (not advice, not a recommendation).
That is, until the market itself says the bearish analysis is wrong or it’s time to exit.
