This market makes no sense but for now, I’m making insane amounts of money. (Between the mkt and work up $10,000 this week). History has taught me that I’m not that smart and the market hates me. There are many warning signs yet those playing it right are making insane amounts of money this year. I have found when I get giddy that’s a sure-fire sign of a top so be careful because I’m giddy on roids Here are some things I’m seeing.
Bankruptcies continue to soar. 3.600 in the first 6 months. 600 in June alone up 43% from June 2019 Many included are big names such as GNC, JC Penny, Hertz, Neiman Marcus, Golds Gym, 24 hour fitness, Lucky Brand Jeans, True Religion, Brooks Bros and David’s Tea to name a few. A shocker for me was the Catholic Archdiosese of New Orleans. Another Big world wide religion announced last night that there will be no big gatherings until at least 2022 and they are looking for ones who are expert in Real Estate, Investing, Tax Laws etc and can prove their qualifications. (They have been selling buildings for several years already)
Also, there continues to be a lot more commercial vacancies in Toronto/ (latest a big law firm is going from 5 floors to 2 floors in a downtown building) Despite the news there are still many warning signs including worldwide COVID cases soaring including the USA.
Despite all of the above follow Margaret Bell’s advice and focus on the Price action.
USA MT 1.56, BSR 1.92
DOW JONES: 200 SMA still acting as strong resistance and Price is going sideways in a channel. RT still weak
