Speculation increasingly looks to have peaked out exactly at the solar cycle maximum again, as demonstrated by these 3 charts:
Once again: I am not an advisor, so don’t follow me. I see as perfect a set-up as I will ever get for a medium-long term trade, and the market is giving me plenty of time to position optimum short. If I wanted an opportunity to make a life-changing amount of money, here it is, and so I am positioned accordingly. Why front-run the market at all? Timing a top is very much possible, and not the game of fools: proponents of that mantra just don’t know the tools. My strongest case short was for the RUT and therefore the home of my biggest shorts – it is already down over 10%. My guess is some traders now see a potential short in that index but are waiting for a retrace that maybe never comes. The wider indices are an elastic band at snapping point. Some traders will be nimble enough to catch it, others will stand like rabbits in the headlights. Those still playing the long side at this point are the dumb money: not just my opinion but as evidenced in indicators.
A historic opportunity, which I hope we will all be celebrating together.
