Well, Almost … Now, It’s ‘Follow The Volume’
‘Follow the money’ was the clue back in the days of the Watergate scandal.
To unravel the secrets of the break-in, you had to follow the money trail.
Not much has changed since then; except this time around it’s important to look at the volume as well.
The 3X Inverse List
Compiled below, is a list of triple-leveraged inverse funds.
Only one (in bold) has recently posted record breaking volume day after day and week after week.
BNKD, DRV, EDZ, FAZ, LABD, SMDD, SOXS, SPXS, TMV, TZA, WEBS, YANG
From a Wyckoff analysis standpoint and from the volume itself, LABD is clamoring for attention.
The daily chart shows us volume is off the scale.
Biotech SPBIO, 3X Leveraged Inverse LABD, Daily
No other leveraged inverse fund’s chart (in the above list) has this look.
Somebody, Always Knows ‘Something‘
Wyckoff wrote back in the day, ‘insiders’ can’t leave well enough alone; their greed is too great to keep under control.
They take their information and act accordingly.
Our job is to look for those actions, decipher them, and then ourselves, act accordingly.
Who Could It Be Now?
So, what could it be that would cause ‘insiders’ (and professional speculators) to focus nearly exclusively on biotech and go short the sector.
Hmmm, just what could it be?
Well, the mainstream media doesn’t seem to have a clue either. It’s all a big ‘mystery’ to them (although cracks are appearing).
It’s The ‘What’ … Not The ‘Why’
Both Livermore and Wyckoff admonished us not to focus on the why of market movements. The ‘why’ will always come out later, after the fact.
They were concerned with ‘what’ is happening; is price moving up, down, or going sideways in accumulation.
There’s no mistake based on the chart of LABD above, something major, potentially long-term, is setting-up in the biotech (SPBIO) sector.
The chart itself tells us to focus specifically on this area (not advice not a recommendation).
With that, we’re about mid-way through today’s session.
Price action appears to be going through a test of yesterday’s reversal.
