Just Charts Today

There's a lot going on today with Fed Chairman Powell, Michael Cohen, and Robert Lighthizer speaking in front of Congress.  President Trump is in Vietnam with Kim Jung Un and expectations for an agreement are low.  The equity markets around the world are soft and interestingly bond markets are also weak with some yield spikes.  

Going to keep it short with just charts today.  No change to risk bias.  

Housekeeping notes:  We continue to do updates to the site and templates for the daily notes.  It has taken longer than I expected so all notes will be on email form like this for the near future.  And I have hired my sister Kelley to handle client services.  She worked as a talent agent for super models her whole life so she can certainly handle you finance people.

Hedge Fund Telemetry Trade Ideas

Trade Ideas Changes:  No changes.   I'm watching IBB as March seasonality is weak.  Airlines could be starting to roll now into very weak March seasonality.  YTD +6.36%

India vs Pakistan - Who you got?

A couple of nuclear weapon armed countries are getting into a skirmish.  Considering how markets have generally ignored some significant negative catalysts over the years I suppose nuclear war will be a buying opportunity too.   Actually I'm just kidding and hope this ends peacefully of course.    India's market has not really moved

Pakistan's market has dropped however

10 Year Bonds Around the World Rising

Italy with some downside Countdowns and decent upside move today

PPO Monitor - Percentage Price Oscillator

The PPO Monitor is a proprietary monitor developed to force rank Indexes, Sectors, and Stocks.  It ranks top down by strongest to weakest by percentage above/below the 50 day moving average.  Shorter term signals can be seen when the 10 and 20 day moving averages turn up (green) or down (red) which often are followed by the 50 day moving average.  This is useful to watch for historically overbought/oversold percentage above/below the 50 day moving average.  It is non correlated with the DeMark Indicators however we have found upside/downside exhaustion signals often occur when something rises to the top or drifts to the bottom of the monitor - increasing the timing aspect. We share this monitor with clients with Bloomberg Terminals.  An added feature is that each market/ETF can be expanded with each component force ranked in the same way.  A couple other features include price deviation from intraday VWAP (useful for intraday reversals) and new 20 day highs/lows on right side.  Please inquire if you would like to be permissioned to use the PPO Monitor.  

Today's highlights:  Watch the sectors breaking below the 10 day and those also below the 20 day.  That's trend change potential.  A lot of ETF's down on day but above the VWAP slightly bullish for today if those levels hold.  

The following chart shows the Percentage Price Oscillator (50 day moving average) in action.   IYR Reits rolling and under the 20 day.  That's the second indicator below
