  • Stock-market legend who called 3 financial bubbles says this is the "real McCoy' of bubbles

    Jeremy Grantham: ‘My confidence is rising quite rapidly that this is, in fact, becoming the fourth, real McCoy, bubble of my investment career. The great bubbles can go on a long time and inflict a lot of pain but at least I think we know now that we’re in one. And the chutzpah involved in having a bubble at a time of massive economic and financial uncertainty is substantial.’ "A market that may be the most bubblicious he’s seen in his storied career." "Grantham is worth paying attention to due to his prescient calls over the years. He said that...

    Stocks rallied into the close Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average in the lead despite continued civil unrest and tough talk from President Donald Trump. The Dow Jones industrials rallied nearly 1.1%, the S&P 500 rose 0.8%, and the Nasdaq gained 0.5% in today's stock action. Small caps tracked by the Russell 2000 advanced 0.8%. Early data showed higher volume on both major exchanges vs. Monday. Though the Nasdaq lagged Tuesday, the recent resurgence in tech stocks has lifted the tech-heavy index to a 6% year-to-date gain through Monday's close. The S&P 500 is down 5% year to date...
  • Here We Go: Stock Market Selloff Starts Tomorrow?

    A couple of major signals suggest market selloff soon. As of past couple of days, T-Bond Futures are not correlating with the current rise in the stock market; this has historically meant a selloff eminent. Second, volume analysis suggests the very upper limit of this rally is when the S&P hits 3069 for this week. So, the selloff could come today (5/28/2020) if S&P hits 3069.

    Short sellers have revived their wagers against the stock market in recent weeks, taking their most aggressive positions in years. Bets against the SPDR S&P 500 Trust, the biggest exchange-traded fund tracking the broad index, rose to $68.1 billion last week, the highest level in data going back to January 2016, according to financial analytics company S3 Partners. That was up from $41.7 billion at the beginning of 2020 and $41.2 billion a year ago.

    Is the U.S. stock market building a V-shaped recovery? History suggests investors shouldn’t count on it just yet, analysts said. Stocks were putting in an impressive rally this week, with gains tied to signs the COVID-19 pandemic may be peaking in Europe and, perhaps, in New York City, the new center of the outbreak. While investors have little comparable experience in dealing with the effects of a deadly disease outbreak, the stock market’s moves remain in keeping with past bear market rallies, meaning a retest of the March 23 lows remains an easily imaginable possibility, analysts said.

    U.S. equity markets clambered higher Thursday as investors digested record jobless claims and waited for the House to vote on a $2 trillion relief package. First-time unemployment filings surged to a record 3.28 million last week, according to the Labor Department, as the COVID-19 pandemic prompted businesses to temporarily close their doors and lay off employees. The previous record was 695,000, set in 1982. The all-time high in claims came hours after the Senate voted 96-0, passing the $2 trillion relief package that would extend aid to individuals, small businesses and corporations hit hardest by the pandemic. The House of...

    U.S. equity markets plunged in the opening minutes of trading, gutting a rebound on Monday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 1,268 points, or 5.9 percent, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite were lower by 5.4 percent and 5.5 percent, respectively. Trading is halted if the S&P 500 falls by 7 percent. The early selling comes as the Trump administration and Congress hammer out the details of a $1 trillion stimulus package designed to prop up the most harshly pummeled sectors of the U.S. economy and give cash to those out of work.

    It is another very, very bad day in the market. As I write, the Dow is flirting with another 1000 point drop, an inevitable result of a good market day yesterday or, what some would call a dead cat bounce. Like most Americans, I have seen a carefully saved and self-managed retirement account (about 65% is managed by myself in self-directed brokerages like Schwab; 35% in professionally managed accounts affiliated with a bank, insurance company or employer) drop more than $70,000 in value over the last month. But, for the record, what I have self-managed has lost about 35% less...
