‘Anti’ Markets

By -

These daily charts are flipped over to a view that is ‘anti’ their normal selves

Whereas I have often referred to the improbably bullish (to many) US dollar as an anti-market, the liquidity collector from the global liquidity driven and speculative mess created by the Fed and its fellows, here is a look at some markets (ETFs & indexes) in their opposite or ‘anti’ suit. In other words, here are some charts flipped over. If the chart is bullish the underlying asset/market is not.

The major risk in my opinion is in the over-hyped inflation trades as inflation signals fade. That means commodities, mainly. But also Materials, Financials and other areas thought to be ‘reflation’ sensitive and highly cyclical.
