Tighty Whitie Powell & Bond Rate Skid Marks

The stock market is doing a great job of making people nervous.
At last check, I told you the S&P bull was wounded but that it could recover. It went on to new highs but now is doing a great job of making everyone nervous again.
Bubble talk is everywhere. But technically, stocks look like they can go higher.
Light Lenten volume has led to larger moves and has done a great job scaring people. Has them seeing ghosts.

If it gets any higher, Jerome will begin to soil his otherwise undoubtedly pristine tighty extremely whities.
The market is figuring out what to do with these now-higher rates. The story is that post-pandemic growth can justify higher stocks alongside higher rates.
That’s the story the bull needs to hear to heal its wound.
It’s a placebo.
But sometimes they work.
Over at Daily Profit Cycle, I’ve been posting daily about broader market trends and what I’m buying and selling.
