Bear Market Bounce

And Then … It’s Gone

How do you know it’s a bear market?

Sharp up moves like yesterday, only last one day … if that much.

We’re talking specifically about the bond market and the BOE announcement … the effects of which have already faded.

It feels like the 2008, meltdown only 10-times larger.

Remember, there’s no money left to save it (the market) this time.

Yesterday’s update discussed the potential for biotech SPBIO, to rally … which it did.

However, when looking at the daily close chart of SPBIO ($SPSIBI) below, we see that price action stopped right at the confluence of two trend-lines.

Next, we’ll look at the leveraged inverse fund LABD.

It was a stiff whack downward; then again, price action is confirming a trend … and potential channel.

The lower trendline does not look like much.

However as noted, it’s rising at approximately + 5,900%, on an annualized basis.


It’s 15-minutes before the open and LABD, is up about +3.87%, in the pre-market.

For today, the lower trendline is the one to watch.

A decisive break (and close) below this line signifies the current move is over and there’s something else at work.


Yesterday, the LABD-22-05, position was reduced by about 8.5%, to maintain margin requirements (not advice, not a recommendation).

As has been an on-going plan for this trade, position size (in LABD) will be increased as the market allows (not advice, not a recommendation).
