  1. Depends if you like picking nickles off the railroad track , as to whether or not you participate here.. We have seen this scenario before but the Fed Put can alter judgements..as can the lingering effects of monetary stimulus . The shifting of the power from West to East is a slow process but signs of panic are visible in the geopolitical realm..Would love to expand discussions to include that… H….. Could be a nice distraction when paint isn’t drying fast enough.

  2. “That sets the stage for folks to chase as “FOMO” rears its ugly head.”

    I’d argue that after this past week and it’s denouement of Friday’s hankering China/US shitstains on the macro wall – and the fact that retail investors are still yanking money hand over fist from equities and dumping it into funds – the FOMO scenario is whistling past a Fed-fed graveyard….

  3. Both the U.S. and global economy are slowing. Don’t see an upside catalyst before earnings season, and, given seasonality issue, even that may not be enough.

  4. China trade deal….bigly sell the news event when it happens…

    Fear of missing out is a very real thing. Somebody out there bought Google stock when it was trading below $100. Jumping on it now, at $1,150, even with Jim Cramer barking at me how cheap it is, doesn’t seem prudent. There are some great I.P.O.s coming up, and I believe some clearance sales upcoming. I think it is time to sit on and acquire more dry powder.
