Tuesday’s ballistic surge reamed bears a new orifice. It also left no room for doubt about which direction the futures will be headed for the remainder of the week. Accordingly, I will now ask you to consider a rally pattern that implies...
Although interest rates on the 10-Year Note have receded sharply over the last two weeks, from 2.62% to 2.35%, the chart makes clear that the pullback is merely corrective. That is not to say yields could not continue to fall significantly...
Tuesday’s downdraft demolished a key S&P support (see inset), implying sellers aren’t through yet. The rare, exhilarating (for bears) selloff also kicked into high gear two options positions we’d acquired hours ahead of the move — one...
