Two trading days after Dennis Gartman said he was short the market, on Monday morning the commodity expert, looking at the overnight action which has pushed S&P future to new all time highs, is now warning that the “melt-up” has begun in earnest as “illogic reigns”, and “it will stop when it stops and not a moment before.”
STOCKS AROUND THE WORLD CONTINUE TO ADVANCE with nine of the ten markets comprising our International Index having risen since we marked them on Friday. The trend remains upward and although nearly ever method we know of for measuring market sentiment is preposterously over-extended to the upside, and although nearly every method we know of to measure relative value is equally over-extended to the upside, the great game of investment musical chairs continues. The “music” of monetary expansionism continues in Japan and Europe, so clearly that helps even as the policies incumbent in quantitative easing here in the US are farther and farther behind us.
The CNN Fear & Greed Index is this morning at 69 and is swiftly approaching “greed” territory once again and purchases of equities at these levels is historically very illadvised for within weeks… or at the most a few months… those purchases will be proven to have been undertaken at extended, and very high prices. But as happened in the dot.com Bubble of near the turn of this century, prices were egregiously, preposterously, stupendously, stupidly over-extended to the upside and then continued to become even more egregiously, preposterously, stupendously and stupidly over-extended for months and months and months. As our old friend, and mentor, Dr. A. Gary Shilling taught us, “The market can remain illogical far longer than you or I can remain solvent.”
