Markets Pause for Data, Woo-Woo Research

Whew!  Week is off to a weird start – since most of this morning is Adventures in Wo0-Woo. 90-minutes to the opening, the Dow was down over 100 but that’s totally understandable.  No one really knows what the f**k is going on, anymore.  Americans’ optimism about country’s direction over next year drops nearly 20 points since May: POLL – ABC. Hong Kong cratered more than 4% overnight, but Japan was up almost one percent,  Maybe …

ShopTalk Sunday: Runaway 2 by 4 Tool Storage

Although the “news” has mainly devolved into butt-covering liberals trying to cover-up the return of Covid 19 on their watch, and glossing over the data on vaccinated people getting Delta, there’s little else to keep the creative mind engaged. Short of mental “office pools” on when the market’s next “recognition moment nosebleed” will begin.  Until you go to the shop, that is… Maybe we will talk about that next weekend.  For now, though, let’s work …

Market Hype: Higher Open – Close is What Matters

Another morning in the land of Shills and Shrills opens with Ure all set to take on another over-scheduled day.  What happened to the notion of retirement?  I swear, if someone would offer a fair price for UrbanSurvival, I’d retire to a low profile twice-weekly Peoplenomics report and spend more time puttering in the shop. Play-by-Play of a world cracking up – though interesting – is not the highest and best use of any of …

Too Much “Slow” as Shortages Grow

The Sovietization of America is not just chronicled in Mark Levin’s new book American Marxism, but it’s becoming evident in two spectacular ways.  First is the democrats reversing course on masking.  Slow Joe is now backed into a corner, medically:  Do the right thing (like Trump did) or do the political thing.  This as hospitalizations are the highest in months.  And behind closed doors White House officials debate masking push as Covid infections spike. We can skip the open …

Guidestones Calculus

With markets in turmoil, a pause for reflection on the Georgia Guide Stones paradox may be useful. If you haven’t heard of them, you’re way behind the curve. Even if you have, though, they may not be “front of mind.”  There’s a lot to be learned from them, of course.  But almost nothing is known about who mysteriously put them there.  Points us to the questions though  –  and brings us to considering how we …

Turnaround Tuesday! Panic Cycling

Two hours to the open, the Dow was up more than 200 points. Not only that, but piddling gains were being seen in Europe, as well.  Despite the news about the Delta variant being very grim, indeed. Still, we can haul out some “tried and true – sometimes” trading ideas and let them fly. First off is the Time Estimator.  The idea goes that panics and sell-offs happen two to three times faster than rallies. Our …

Midsession Chart to Ponder

Long-time readers know (time machine work, study of red light laser therapy and anti-aging medicine aside) our main fascination on the Peoplenomics side of the house is how we could replay events of 1929: Here’s how today’s trading looks in the larger context, so far… This is NOT to says that the market will keep going down until we get to the yellow zone.  What we will offer is the waveform of the 1929 topping process …

Markets: How Far is Down? Social’s for Suckers II

Welcome to the day denial wears off.  Don’t know if you remember last Friday’s column:  “Prepping for Lockdown 2.0 – Markets in Denial?”   With 90-minutes to the open, Dow futures were down 450 points.  Yeah, I know – we were way early on the variant impacts, but that’s how you stay alive today. As we explained for our Peoplenomics.com subscribers Saturday, we’re facing a terrible Elliott Wave problem to sort out this week.  Here’s a …

ShopTalk Sunday: Saved [by] My ASS(ortments)

Weekend, markets closed.  Summertime in the shop. But how does “Prepping”  (a category we helped ‘invent’ back in 1997) and being a tool-slut go hand-in-hand? Let’s Big Picture This Let’s pretend you are – oh – 72 years old (like me).  You know (by genetics and stressors of Life) the odds of making it to 92 are about 50-50.  This sounds morbid, but follow along, here. Means I might have 20-years of life left.  Which …
