A good report that departs from some of the nuts and bolts (so much so that I forgot to include the usual currency segment, which we have frankly had nailed since the commodity currencies broke down a year ago and the great USD rally was just a twinkle in Uncle Buck’s eye ), managing what was an expected early December drop in markets with an eye out toward Tax Loss, Santa and January Effect seasonals.
But to me the most important aspects of #321 are its clear views about why nothing about this macro environment is healthy, how the market is vulnerable and how 6 years later we are simply closing out a massively significant market event, with the majority at the opposite end of the emotional spectrum to Q4, 2008.
On that note, at the prodding of a subscriber, I’ve excerpted a segment from NFTRH 7 (Nov. 8, 2008) on Deflation and Inflation. To me it shows how little things have changed in the ensuing 6 years. Amazing, really. I’ll probably post it here later, to go with Friday’s post about a potential ‘inflation trade’ bounce, possibly in early 2015.
