Are Stocks Having An Efficient Market Moment?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Carol K., who is slowly emerging from a coma, has taught me many things.  One major lesson is that investing is a process and not about predicting the future, and if you get it wrong, don’t get angry but adapt to the new market conditions and get on yout horse and back to even.  

The last two days really feel like stocks are having an efficient markets moment. That is a more hawkish Fed is being priced and markets are now concerned about their lofty valuations. 

We have resurrected GMM’s S&P Key Levels table, which illustrate what we believe are the most signifcant short-term levels to monitor. 

Note the S&P500 bounced off its 50-day at 4672 today, now a big support level.  A key fibo at 4622 and 4495 (-4.28 percent), the December low, is the one level we are watching closely.  To the upside is 4818 and 4796.56, the all-time high and closing high, set just two trading sessions ago 


A Wiley E. Coyote Moment?

Will the current sell-off morph into a Wiley E. Coyote moment and drive stocks off a cliff down to their fair value, which, for most, is much lower?  We seriously doubt it until the Fed begins to remove lots of the stimulus and tighten monetary.  Remember”three steps and a stumble?”   

We suspect it will take much more than three steps to break something.  

We have no idea where the market is headed tomorrow but shorts should beware.  There is just too much liquidity and wealth in the global economy.  Earnings for Q4 are going to come in very hot. Moreover, stocks seem the place to be with the new inflation regime and extremely low and negative real interest rates.   

It’s extremelly difficult to submerge a beach ball and hold it underwater for any significant time.

To go lower on sustained basis, we suspect the Fed will have to drain a lot of liquidity and destroy mucho wealth before they are done. 

Asset Inflation And Price Inflation Are “Cousins”

The following illustrates the model I believe represents the current. (and many years past) market environment.  Love that simplicity and parsamony?

As always, we reserve the right to be wrong. 

Stay frosty, folks.
