Crude fell sharply Friday and today, 2.6% and 2% respectively. Crude weakness also spread to silver, another spec darling. Unlike Friday, however, falling commodities today could not take the stock market lower. This bouyancy should develop into a mini-rally over the next several days.
In environments like this I work on other projects and don't follow the blips. I won't go long and indeed carry 1% SOPIX and 1% UCPIX. Sometimes it pays not to care, as detachment prevents trading errors.
Nasdaq Comp and 100 fell and recovered from their 200-day M/As. NDX, SPX, and DJI closed higher.
The 11:15 post included the weekly technical composite which is in sell mode as well as the 30-day I1. So the backdrop is for continued weakness after an expected bounce.
I'm happy with my stock market and precious metals forward sentiment work, reasonably content with the bonds and dollar, and still in development for the other markets, including crude. Thus, more sophisticated code needs to be developed to master the intricacies of how these markets react environmentally. One size does not fit all. I'm building out my computing environment and writing code to more completely correlate the markets that do not meet my criteria for accuracy. My posting will be less frequent until the next shorting window opens and/or the hardware/software environment meets my needs for a broader scope of analysis.
