An Entropic Market Obeying the Laws

What goes up must come down. For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. Yup, I am referencing fundamental laws of the universe, Newtonian Physics, if you will. Well, actually the first maxim is a colloquial offshoot of the law of gravity, but it works. Just look at the market today. The price-action is huge and the movement is down, way down. My-oh-my, things can change...

The Market is Just Being the Market

Yesterday seemed to be an alarm bell for the bearish clan. Sheesh, give em a triple-point drop on the Dow and they all wake up screaming. I read one technical analysis this morning … well, here is the title, BEARISH WEDGE: COULD THE DOW DROP 1000 POINTS?

Asian stock markets are down across the board this...

So, What Is the Reason Today?

Yesterday provided a nice breather from the selling we’ve seen over the last week or so. Although not great in total numbers, the rally yesterday impressed me for two simple reasons – 1) the market rallied at all and 2) the rally was broad based. Stocks closed higher on Monday with broad gains across most sectors that helped the S&P 500 rebound from its largest weekly drop since 2012....
