We humans like the see bad guys lose. Like when the Americans overrun the Nazis about 25 minutes into Saving Private Ryan. Or when Saddam is being led to his noose. Or when Osama bin Laden is shot dead. Or when Janet Yellen and Jerome Powell’s plans go horribly awry. They’re all evil, and it’s good to see them meet their comeuppance.

The last of those examples took place today, and I couldn’t be happier. There is one more piece of this jigsaw puzzle, and that is the CPI tomorrow morning. I’ll get to that in a bit. For the moment, I shall simply applaud today’s market action, whose peak on the SPY almost perfectly tagged the underbelly of the broken trendline. In case you missed it the first dozen times, my bold call right now is for the double Fibonacci support to fail the next time it is challenged. If this transpires, we can all crown me the King of Charts for the rest of time. We shall see. My head is as yet unadorned.
