If there’s one thing I can show to swiftly illustrate the madness of the equity markets, it is the SlopeChart below. It represents Amazon’s trio of exponential moving averages (50, 100, 200). As you can see, there hasn’t been a single downside crossover………in THIRTY MONTHS. This, my friends, is what a one-way market looks like (and how a company gets to a trillion dollar market cap).

Given the success of recent picks lately (DLTR, BIG, TROX) I wanted to share another intriguing short setup, which is Acadia Pharmaceuticals. Its topping pattern right now seems to mirror perfectly its basing pattern from years ago. I anticipate much lower prices in the months ahead. Apparently their big product is a drug that combats hallucinations. This market could sure use some of those pills.
Just yesterday I was mentioning the very smooth basing power of ultra-bearish fund DUST, shown below. I’ve circled the price gap. It is adding to its gains from yesterday. It just seems the so-called precious metals sector, after seven years in its own bear market, can’t get up off the carpet.
I spent a lot of time recently looking at the long-term index charts. We’re all familiar with the history of the Internet Bubble and the Housing Bubble. How gigantic they were, how they were fueled by puffery or outright lies, and how the housing bubble in particular was made possible through completely bogus credit ratings. Both of these prior bubbles were powered by Alan Greenspan and his multi-trillions of largesse, and they both had historic wipeouts.
But what struck me – – really, really stuck me – – was how PUNY those two bubbles were compared to the ascent we’ve seen over the past nine years. I mean……..just look at this!
SlopeCharts can chart thousands and thousands of currency pairs. I read that Argentina’s Peso was in a free fall, so I decided to check it out. Voila!
