Time for Banks to bounce? Could be because it's time for T Bonds to drop.
Business loans have done a swan dive in line with declining yields and thus, declining bank incentive.
Bad news? The Bank index keeps burrowing south measured in SPX units and that ain't bullish for the market.
BKX weekly view is getting good and bearish. Components JPM and BAC have already made lower lows to January and t...

BKX-SPX ratio not quite broken yet but could indicate a decline in yields (bounce in T bonds) if it does break dow...
Made a decent profit on KRE after ID'ing a potential 'carry' play. Now as an indicator KRE is losing momo.
Interest rates are popping today and the banks love it. Surprised? ZIRP + rising yields = profit motive for the Pigs.
Pigs like taper talk...
KRE & IAT are up, while market is down (yey!) continuing to support our 'taper (QE) to carry (trade)' theory.
'Taper to Carry' thesis is alive & well w/ regional banks breaking out and Pigs breaking a S/T downtrend. I am be...
