Reviewing Market Signals As Warnings Increase

I think August being seasonally one of the most "dangerous" months of the year in terms of drawdowns is sufficient for a case of imminent downside risk.

Dollar Slide Extends
3 months ago

Any specific drivers for this surge of dollar weakness? Just last month, the US dollar index was breaking out above its 200DMA and looked ready to extend a comeback. Now, it's below its 50DMA, not just the 200DMA!

The Stock Market Is A Different Kind Of Overbought With Breadth So Strong

Definitely. And to this point, buying oversold has a much better risk/reward than selling overbought because of the longer-term uptrend in the stock market. It took me a while, but I stopped automatically selling overbought markets and instead waited for additional signals....like dropping out of overbought conditions.

A Trade To Hedge A Top In Facebook With A Rebounding Google

This quote from AdExchanger was VERY telling about FB's earnings conference call:

"Although Facebook reported its Q2 earnings the day after CEO Mark Zuckerberg donned a suit to testify along with his big tech CEO bros in front of a congressional antitrust subcommittee – incredibly, not a single investor asked Zuckerberg about his appearance.

And the advertiser boycott barely got a mention, although Wehner pointed out that the Top 100 advertisers make up just 16% of Facebook’s ad revenue and falling.

According to Zuck: “Small businesses are the biggest part of our business, not the largest businesses. … We want to serve everyone, but if you as investors or analysts or anyone is thinking about our business, the really accurate way to think about what we do is we are in the business of serving small businesses.”

In that vein, Facebook announced a milestone on the call: It now has more than 9 million active advertisers across its services."

It seems small and medium-sized business matter most to FB, and the boycotters collectively don't matter much. And definitely if users stick by Facebook, advertisers have to return at some point.

That's right. The users are at the center of everything. It's next to impossible for advertisers to ignore a 2 billion, highly targetable audience for long.

A Trade To Hedge A Top In Facebook With A Rebounding Google

The potential for bigger % move in Facebook is exactly why I bought a straight put on FB vs the call spread on Google. A spread on FB, as I learned with the last trade, significantly caps potential gains in the trade.
