TGIF – Fed Week Ends, G20 Begins

(Before It's News)

So far the markets are staying “strong”.  

That’s good for our longs, bad for our hedges but that’s why we have both – along with plenty of CASH!!! on the sidelines – just in case.  Unfortunately, the Fed action, along with the out-of-control Trump budget, took the Dollar down 1.5% and that made the markets seem stronger than they actually are (because the currency they are priced in got weaker).  This also boosted commodites, which kept the materials and energy sectors from dropping and now we’ll see if they can hold up as the Dollar comes off the floor at 100 (and yes, long USD at 100 is a good FX play with tight stops below).

Our target range for the Dollar is 100 to 103 so we expect to be back at 101.50 soon and THEN we will have a better idea of what the real reaction to the Fed was.  So far, as we predicted (and you are welcome if you took yesterday’s index shorts for huge wins), the post-Fed rally has pulled back a bit but the Russell (/TF) still makes a good short at 1,385, especially if the Dow (/YM) is below 20,900 and the S&P (/ES) is below 2,380 and the Nasdaq (/NQ) is below 5,420 AND the Dollar is over 100.  

Today is option expiration day and quarterly expirations can be very tricky so a good day to take off and come back Tuesday (Mondays are pointless) to see what’s up.  By the way, if you don’t feel comfortable walking away from the markets for a few days – you REALLY need our help because a good portfolio should run itself – not run you!  

The weak Dollar has also pushed oil back to $49.50 into the weekend and, hopefully, they either test $50 today or hold $49.50 into Monday so we can short them again (/CL).  Again, since we don’t think the Dollar is going any lower then, other than the US manipulation into the weekend – we don’t see any reason for oil to be stronger.

Tesla (TSLA) is another short we are…
