The Market And Media Paint 2 Different Pictures

The market digests its recent highs amidst a rush of politically charged news as more riots and a second impeachment dominate headlines.

We believe the market is more focused on the economic plans of the incoming administration and not as much on the politics at hand.

The marijuana industry can attest to that with its recent strong performance.

Furthermore, the Chamber of Commerce reported that the tariffs on China have negatively impacted U.S. manufacturing and agriculture. Whether Biden reworks the China tariffs or not remains to be seen.

Both the ETFs that represent China (FXI) and the pot sector (MJ) closed up today, with MJ breaking multi-month highs, and FXI looking to test a resistance level at 48.71.

With that said, money has also moved into the safety of U.S government bonds (TLT) creating a bottoming reversal chart pattern.

Today’s gap up in TLTs was followed by a large range day with the next important level to clear at 153.85 or the high of 1/6.

If the TLTs can hold over the 152 and begin to build a base around the 154 area, then look for a potential fill of the gap back to 155.66.

On the risk on front, junk bonds show no signs of abating their recent run at this point. JNK is close to a breakout over 109, with 107.60 the key support to hold.

All in all, apart from the upcoming inauguration creating an out-of-control situation that ultimately disrupts business and the economy, we see more signs of further gains once the dust settles.
