Fed Ex sending a signal to “Exit” the markets ?

Posted by Chris Kimble on 04/02/2013 at 11:44 am; This entry is filed under Federal Express, S&P 500, Transportation, Trucking.


Federal Express has been a good leading indicator for the S&P 500 over the past 10 YEARS! Back in 2002, FDX created higher lows and the SPY followed. In 2006/2007 FDX created lower highs and the SPY followed it down.

Now Fed Ex could be sending an “EXIT” signal for the markets/SPY as it hit the top of its rising channel and has been breaking down of late!

Fed Ex has been a good leading indicator at bottoms and tops. Will it be different this time???

Can Ben stop this “Twilight Zone” pattern from taking place?


Anyone out there old enough to remember the theme song from “Twilight Zone?” (play theme song here)

Back in 2000, the high for the S&P 500 took place on March 24th (1,553), near the first day of spring, a couple of days after a full moon. Last week was the first day of spring and a full moon took place, with the S&P 500 up against key resistance in the chart above, reaching 1,570 as a high on March 27th. 

You Know The Market’s Euphoric When…

Copper breaks to 8 month lows… won’t impact the economy or Silver!

A further breakdown in Copper doesn’t send a message about the global economy! APRIL FOOLS!

Small Caps momentum….Big-Time overbought, at resistance!


Russell 2000 broke to all-time highs a few weeks ago. Now this key index’s relative momentum is reaching levels that has caused this index to at least take a pause over the past 7 years.

Financial Contagion Always Starts Small — Just Like In Cyprus

History indicates that contagions start small. What is worrisome about Cyprus is the complacency that markets are showing, based on the assumption that it is a little, one-off, insignificant event. Here is a little refresher on contagion, and then we will go back to Cyprus.

1. Russian ruble collapse. Remember 1997 and 1998. The sequential problems in worldwide currency-trading exchanges ended with the collapse of the Russian ruble and the demise of the Long Term Capital Management (LTCM) hedge fund. It did not start with the LTCM collapse; that was the final market shock, which triggered a large government intervention. That brought in Alan Greenspan and the US Federal Reserve. The collapse actually started with a single-currency failure in Thailand. Panicked trading in the Thai baht started as what looked like a small, one-off, insignificant event. The contagion from that event took about 18 months to play out.

2. Zimbabwe inflation. The earliest signs of inflation, confiscation of wealth and appropriation of property, and oppression of the populace in Zimbabwe appeared many years before hyperinflation, full destruction of the currency, and suppression of the productive facilities of the country. The collapse was in the incipient stage long before it became evident that the government’s policies were going to accelerate, rather than prevent it. I saw this one coming firsthand.

As chair of the Global Interdependence Center’s central banking series, I recall meeting with representatives of Zimbabwe and its central bank. We discussed the risks they were taking in the early stages of aggressive monetary expansion as an attempted solution to their problems. We warned them about appropriation of wealth. They were emphatic that they were controlling capital and monitoring the inflationary effects of what was then a very early-stage policy. Those of us who sat in that meeting listened to the representatives for an hour and a half and then spent the next hour and a half attempting to persuade them that their policy would lead to the demise of wealth and investment in their country. A few years later, the outcome became apparent to the world.

3. Weimar Republic hyperinflation. When the Weimar Republic attempted to meet international flow requirements under the Treaty of Versailles, it did not immediately cause hyperinflation. The process started with currency expansion and banking manipulation in an attempt to manage foreign-exchange flows. It ended with hyperinflation, the demise of the government, and the rise of Nazism in Europe. Thus, the European contagion did not begin with the fall of the government and rise of Hitler in the 1930s; it started years earlier.

In a marvelous piece of research, economist Madeline Schnapp documented this history in monetary terms. When Germany went to war in 1914, an egg cost 2 pfennigs and a loaf of bread was 10 pfennigs. In 1919, after the war ended and at the birth of Weimar, the egg was 20 pfennigs and the loaf was 1 mark. By April 1922, the egg was 4 marks, by September 9 marks, and by November 22 marks. In February 1923, the egg cost 45 marks, by May it was 800 marks, in July 1923 it cost 20,000 marks, and by August it was ten times that much: 200,000 marks. At the end of 1923 one needed billions of marks to purchase an egg, and a 1 trillion marks to buy a loaf of bread.

4. The US financial crisis of 2007-09. Thinking back on the recent crisis in the US, we saw the first signs of weakness in the financial sector in mid-2007. There were some pricing anomalies in May that were visible but not explained.….

Marc Faber: ”Be prepared to lose 20 to 30 percent… I think you’re lucky if you don’t lose your life…”

The banking catastrophe in Cyprus could be repeated in the United States and elsewhere, according to Marc Faber, the editor and publisher of the Gloom Boom & Doom Report.

      The 3150 mark is what I see on SP500. That is 100% increase over the next 12 to 24 months!
      There will be no crash sooner than that.
      The controllers will make it spectacular for everyone to see… before pulling the plug on all currencies.
