We all get these, but it doesn’t make them any less entertaining…
This time, Ms. Annette even carefully spelled out the ticker symbol – ya know, to make things easier for calling your broker.

Fully-Valued?

By -

I’ll just kick off today with a single, simple chart – – the NASDAQ e-mini futures, shown below. They have already benefitted from the full force of blow-out earnings from the likes of Amazon and Google, and yet all they’ve got to show for it is a doji shooting star at the crest of what is obviously a very swift ascent. I wouldn’t bank on much more upside here, folks. To put it kindly, the high-tech market seems fully-valued.

Da Basics

We’re four days into the trading week. For me, Monday was a “2”, Tuesday was a “3”, Wednesday was a “6”, and Thursday was a “7”. So……….progress. A week that started off vomit-inducing is getting better. I’d appreciate Friday being a 10, thank you very much.

The charts don’t necessarily point to that, however. The ES only needs to slip above that red line to give the already power-mad bulls another shot of elixir to create another phalanx of lifetime highs.

O Canada

Since apparently our northern neighbor didn’t learn anything from the folly of the U.S. between 2002 and 2006, they have engaged in their own nutty real estate mania. Countless seminars and get-rich-quick schemes are cluttering the landscape, and I think we all know how this movie is going to end. For myself, I’ve taken to shorting those with a financial interest in this bubble, and my best winner so far is the Bank of Montreal.
