Who Creates Deficits?

Chat from zFacts.com

Scott Herwehe has produced another worthy editorial in the comments section of the blog. Your comments section is an excellent source on politics, economics and markets. Suggest you check out, not only Scott’s editorial on Republican hypocrisy over the deficit, but  all other comments.

Here’s his conclusion on the deficit -

“Even the financial bailout is significantly small compared to just Bush’s tax cuts. Social spending doesn’t even compare. Our corporate controlled media will never talk about the Bush tax cuts because that would be acting against their own interests. Who benefits from a tax cut for the rich? The wealthiest among us. Who control and finance our corporate media? The wealthiest among us. The only way to get out of this recession of the real economy (not Wall Street) is to spend money in a manner that creates jobs or in other words benefits the majority and for once not the minority.”

India Ascending

Economically, India only experienced collateral damage from the 2008 meltdown. Why? – Dr. Yaga Reddy, the former head of the Bank of India, did not buy into the American concept of unregulated free markets. Bob Kuttner editorial on India, King’s College and those who withstood the breakdown of our unregulated capitalism that had to be bailed out by taxpayers.

Dem’s to Attack Wall Street?

Democrats seem eager to attack Wall Street was the headline, by Lisa Leher, on centrist web news site Politico over the weekend. Will we finally get some financial reform? If so expect Wall Street to get hurt in the short term. But in the longer term this is good for the economy of the US and world that we fix the problems that caused the 2008 meltdown.

If the Democrats follow through with this they will salvage the 2010 elections. Most Republicans will protect Wall Street. Problem is so many of the Democrats are owned by Wall Street. So much of Wall Street money will go to candidates that protect them.

Technicals, Fundamentals & Analysis

See Positions for changes made each weekend

Another up day in reduced below average volume. The major indexes are even further above their 50 day moving averages than last week. This means they are even more overbought than last week. None of the major technical factors that have historically worked as prediction tools have correctly predicted US market direction in past months. – We should according to volume and distance from the 50 day moving average already be falling.

However, our McClellan Oscillator is holding up fairly well. Still NEUTRAL and not OVERBOUGHT. Lesson here is different technical indicators or theories work better at different times

Of course, the fundamental that’s behind all this is we have failed to fix any of the root causes that caused the 2008 financial meltdown that was created by  the almost completely non regulated US “free market”) financial system.  If anything they are even less regulated today.

This is the beginning of earnings week

Fearless Forecast for Last Week - “Up week”   Another correct call

Fearless Forecast for This Week – How markets react to earnings will be key. Earnings start to trickle in this week. The dollar again (see below) rules.  The Greek crisis seems settled (see below) and this will help stocks.  

Best read of the Tea leaves – We are in an “irrational exuberance” period – The trend is higher  so predicting up week.

Significant Indexes

  • McClellan Oscillator rose  to +3.26 yesterday.  [+60 or above = Overbought = sell. -60 or below = Oversold = buy]. StockCharts has a better version of the McClellan chart ($NYMO)LINK. – This is still NEUTRAL territory – technically neither overbought or oversold.
  • US Dollar – fell a significant  -0.60% yesterday. [Anything over +/- @0.50 is significant.] There has been some settlement in Greek debt crisis so Euro should rise and dollar fall in short term. Mantra – right now The Dollar Rules Remember, dollar down = stocks up.

+48% Profit in TYH 1st quarter of 2110

TYH is the ETF that does @3x what technology does & ROM (suggested, but not used) does 2X what technology does

Before we go over these figures and there are 2 important points.

  • Caution Don’t let it go to your head. For the most part these stocks were chosen when the US markets were oversold, other reasons, plus we were lucky
  • Re-read point 1

The dumbest thing you could do go out any buy TYH today.  Investors has a 0% stake in this ETF today.  Its way too far above its 50 day moving average and markets are in a neutral and not oversold condition. To see actual buys and sells link to Positions section of blog . Why TYH worked -

  • A bull market
  • Oversold conditions – Investors uses the McClellan Oscillator or as Monitor named it the Mickey O. The more oversold the better. Investors411 bought TYH in more or very oversold positions.
  • Technology and small cap stocks generally outperform in a bull market. (Its not quite this simple)

.

Long Term Outlook = CAUTIOUSLY BULLISH
