A Market Like Orchids-Sturdy & Forgiving Of Neglect

We’ve had huge success growing orchids.

I believe the main reasons for the success are because they sit in a southeast facing window and are only watered once a week.

Orchid plants are, in general, sturdy and forgiving of neglect.

However, their flowers are subject to bruising and other damage. 

The best news for orchids: it is more a matter of letting them grow than getting them to grow.

The orchid pictured is the standard Paphiopedilum also known as “Bull dog”.  

Inflorescences should be well developed by mid-January, as you see here.

Currently, the market can be compared to growing orchids.

Here we are in mid-January seeing the “bull dog” in full bloom.

With all the potentially damaging news around, the market seems sturdy and forgiving.

As long as we let the market run rather than try to get it to run, we are in synch with the right light and watering conditions.

Nevertheless, the market remains prone to bruising and other damage.

Can the “bull dog” stay in optimum growing conditions and avoid the risk of bruising.

One quick note. I haven't talked about the Year of the Brown Earth Dog in a while.

It comes to mind right now, because of the orchid metaphor and bull dog.

This Chinese astrological year will end on January 31st. I will write a lot more on the new year next week-or when we enter the Year of the Pig.

For now, the takeaway is that we are in a period of the water element as of 2018 that should last until 2025. That could mean the bearish trend is just beginning.

Hence, the risk of overwatering our orchids.

So back to the current blooms.

Todays’ strength came from positive earnings in the semiconductor sector.

As Sister Semi’s SMH is an integral part of the Economic Modern Family, that it went back into an unconfirmed Recuperation phase is a positive.

Does that mean SMH is in full bloom and can only wilt from here?
