Beyond the Border Breakdown

It was only a few trading days ago that most U.S. equity indexes were at the highest levels in the history of Earth. They are cheerfully and blissfully overvalued, far more than all prior bubbles, and no meaningful breakdown has occurred in over 30 months. Even so, the markets outside the U.S. has been ripping at the seams, and I wanted to share seven charts that are illustrative of that happy fact:

This Time For Sure (Part 3 of 4)

By -

Preface to All Four Parts: I am presently short 74 different positions. I actually intended to be short 80 positions, but the market closed on Friday faster than I could finish the orders. I am showing all 74 charts across four posts this weekend, but unlike the past, this isn’t a “half for everyone, half for PLUS only” deal. From now on, PLUS members are going to get the vast majority of the charts. Non-paying readers will get a sampling of the charts, and PLUS members will get the majority.

These are all ‘live” positions, and recently they have been doing a yeoman’s job of outperforming the market. Click on any thumbnail for a big version, and you can scroll left and right through the gallery. I have tried to zoom in (when appropriate) on the portion of the chart I believe is most germane and illuminating to readers. So if you’re not a subscriber yet, please read the reasons for being one.
