E Market Briefing For Monday, Sept. 16
Daily action has priced in most of the optimism related to dovish monetary policy, has somewhat discounted favorable anticipation of a trade deal, and is in proximity to try to nominally make new S&P highs any time now.
E Market Briefing For Friday, Sept. 13
Looking forward, it becomes tricky for the Fed as they still cut, if no cut is justified; markets may not like that.
E Market Briefing Wednesday, Sept. 11
Higher yields for five days might suggest better conditions ahead, but might keep the Fed steady, which might rock stocks.
E Market Briefing For Monday, Sept. 9
German engineering is trying to reassert itself as we near the end of a technology transition year.
E Market Briefing For Tuesday, Sept. 3
Regional Fed survey rebounds hint at fair tariff resistance, while several 'known unknowns' are still demanding checkmate responses.

Gene is humble and proud to be the only guy not shorting and believing the S&P would go to the moon 'if' Trump won back in 2016. Now a bit more concerned but only from a cyclical not secular basis.

thanks Gary... I didn't mean to imply tariffs help; in fact with the G-20 removing a provision regarding 'competitive devaluations' in their communique today (I'm sure media will talk about it tomorrow, or should); you have greater risk of trade and tariff issues being joined by a currency war too. I'll touch on this and a single key market impediment at my Seminar here in Chicago tomorrow as I've already shared with our regular subscribers. Let me point out that I have NOT shorted this market once this year or last year; even as expressing concern after we got our 'to the moon' rally on Trump's election. I urged investors to separate political from investment views back then (Nov. 6 2016) and get in the market fully if he won; even if they hated Trump. Now we had the move; time not to be greedy even if it doesn't fall apart. The only two stocks I picked on the buy side at midyear are doing well by the way. Anyway I'm being chatty; working up to the speech tomorow haha...happy Sunday.

Enjoying the 'crash'... we first warned of 'crash conditions' underlying the market back on Jan. 25 and 26; and again when I spoke at TraderExpo in New Your a month ago. Just so you know, we are offering a 'rebate' coincidentally because it's Easter / Passover week. It's $30 for a Daily Briefing and $100. for MarketCast subscriptions and won't be repeated anytime soon. We only do this 3 times a year for new members at and in-addition you'll get the comments immediately not on a multi-day delayed basis (they are intended to be only excerpts here). Also I will be speaking at TraderExpo in Chicago in July; which will be well after the Crash has mostly run it's course...or as we'll outline along the way. Join us for the journey if you feel we've (in all humility) nailed this market; as we're not going to often permit full quotation of my thoughts in the future...Happy Holidays and please visit to join.

Well said and 'close' to what I've said to our 'actual' subscribers for several weeks. I wouldn't worry about 'Trade'; just avoid 'linear thinking' and recognize that China and Mexico realize things have to be renegotiated. As to the market; before the Vote I projected an extreme rally if Trump won; opposite of most forecasts. And now I have another view as we move into the new tax year. I appreciate your interest in my work; and reflections. (The comments here are usually required to be a day or two after shared with our subscribers and do not include my technical chart video analysis... I do appreciate the interest... happy holidays!)

Beware The Ides Of March
3 years ago

It means we expected early March strength in the S&P futures, which is our trading focus. But 'beware the Ides of March', is a forward warning for trouble later in the month from a very overbought short-term condition.

(Please understand that portions of our reports are posted as TalkMarkets wishes. They are excerpts of my work, delayed at least a day or two in fairness to our paying subscribers at, and they are not each day's report either. So (sorry) that perhaps makes following the context, or flow, of our forecasts a little bit confusing, as by the time you read it, it will be well after our regular members saw the report. Thanks for your interest!)

Pundits 'Hunting' For 'Signs Of A Bear'
3 years ago

Thank you kindly Adem; my bearishness for the last six months was based on 'facts' evident in the buyback-sustained S&P range during distribution. Even the OMB and IMF saw global GDP deteriorating, yet so many acted 'as if' things were growing. For our subscribers, we're still short from March S&P 2065; came out of half over 2 weeks ago now; and layered a bit back on during this past Monday's rally. A bit antsy about China's Currency Reserves coming Sunday, during a week their FX trading desks will be closed. Cheers!
