If you are the biggest WHALE hedge-fund guy, I’ll read you.
(What’s really pathetic is that the US “lags significantly in … internet speeds” … and we’ve seen that noted before by other guys in other tables, so he’s not telling us anything new here.)

Pinks are swing stops
Overshoots and undershoots are TRAPS. Once traders realize it’s a trap they scramble to reverse or at least close out and await better opportunity.
That’s just me boss; everybody is different, with different timeframes. This is swing, 15 min

That makes sense. I'll have to start watching for those!!

Problem with the “Smart Money Index” (now diverging) is that they never explain WTF that index is composed of, or what it really means.
BUT HERE THEY EXPLAIN IT THOROUGHLY, and it’s worth reading

BofA is not my favorite “analyst” as they cry wolf every week/few weeks based on flows.
Nonetheless here is their quickie-cheat sheet for bear market indicators. They now have 11 of their 19 indicators crying bear.

I guess the new tax law didn't bother the biotechs as much as we thought, touching 8 day highs today!

If you're going to make year end bonus it won't be by buying your benchmark! Need leverage and beta, hellow biotech. In another year they will be all over blockchain plays at year end. Just make sure you trade out before the year end holdings list gets compiled for the customers. :lol:

B of A Merrill recession indicators are valid for the typical post war recession. Instead we are up in the third central bank caused liquidity bubble so on paper only the dot com and housing bubble crashes are relevant. What Paul Volker did fighting inflation is not.Besides, where was the actionable items to go with their forecast?

interesting close, but still doesn't mean anything unless bears can make a huge red bar and follow through the 2nd day again.
