What a beautiful day.

I reduced my position in Cummins Inc. [[CMI]] by another 25%, leaving me with half a position. I will sell the remainder above $60. Also, I added to and initiated positions in a number of names, like [[CBD]] , Brocade Communications Systems, Inc. [[BRCD]] , [[TAN]] and Visa Inc. [[V]] .

The bears have been routed. Now it’s time to raze the conquered cities and loot it for all of its worth aka “rape and pillage.”

Disclosure: Long, with great vigor, into the bell. “The Fly” wins again.

    I await the comments of a certain “Mark Spiegal,” “Tmoe”, “FIG” and other wrong headed burlap models.

      They may be a while. Trying to get their mid-month burlap suit quota put to bed, they are out there pushing the “houndstooth with matching brogans” like there’s no tomorry.

        Funny you should mention Tmoe(rawn). He was just chest-thumping the other day (Monday? which so far has been the low for this pullback) about how well DUG was treating him given his entry point of $13.90 IIRC. DUG closed today at $13.19, a loss of 5.1% for the heir apparent to DevilDog if he still has the position. And when I say chest thumping I actually mean chest thwacking since he’s probably got manboobs.

    Today was trading session 17 of the selling stampede that began on January 20th. Every selling stampede ends with 2 consecutive up days accompanied by >1:1 internals (advancers:decliners and up volume:down volume). It looked like Tuesday was going to be the first of those 2 consecutive up days but the stampede killing rally sputtered out on Wednesday. Tomorrow will tell us if today was just another false start like Tuesday or if the selling stampede really is finished.

    I’ve been an asshole dip buyer every time the percentage of S&P stocks above their 10-dma got 1 std deviation below the mean. Which is to say I’ve been putting money to work on the long side for the last week but I think today was my last day of buying for a while;

    http://www.indexindicators.com/charts/sp500-vs-sp500-stocks-above-10d-sma-params-x-x-x/

    Now it is time to sit back on my long positions and assess the quality of this newly born rally. I’ll be closely watching whether we can make a higher high than in January and for confirmations/non-confirmations in new 52-week highs and the cumulative advance/decline lines.

    Shorts are ready to be passangers on the USU nuclear thermal rocket express headed for Numbfuckland. Short interest has INCREASED from 11% to 12.5% over the past couple of weeks while price action gives us a bullish consolidation just below the 150 DMA. Next stop $6.60 ish level (>50% pop from here). Enjoy the ride boyzzzzz

      Below the 150DMA? Todd Harrison would say that sideways action above resistance is basing which is bullish and sideways action below resistance is churning which is bearish.

          Only a few of the etfs have enough liquidity and tight spreads to effectively daytrade (if that is your intention).
          I am not sure how well Fidelity executes their trades or even if it is direct access (I assume their active trading platform is).
          I do know Fidelity screwed me in the ‘late 80s when they tacked on a short term trading fee to their hourly priced Select Funds. Before that happened it was like picking $$ off a tree as many of their funds were not price efficient.
          It could be better to go with a direct access broker like IB,Lightspeed, etc. with low commissions and you would obviously have access to the entire market.

    Dear Mr. The Fly,

    Have you seen my $20,000 pen? I’m going to need that due to the number of “bwahaha” notes I need to write to my bear acquaintances.

    Sincerely,

    That’s an awful lot of chest thumping for one day. Your very bullishness is more than enough reason to expect that this market is going to yank your ass through a knothole sometime in the next few sessions.

    BTW, bears don’t wear burlap. They wear Filson heavy-weight canvas. The engineering on it was worked out over 100 years ago. When ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ deep freeze hits, we’ll be ready. You, however, will become a bullcicle when your modern, high-tech rags fail to provide sustained protection from the coming winter.

    Then i was wrong about you. At least you are objective.

      To be honest, I have a long term thesis on the market that includes extreme levels of inflation. Some may believe this is not objective, however, it is based on macro economic realities that have always been at play. We have been powerful enough to avoid getting sucked into a hyper-inflationary spiral in the past, but now all we can do is saber rattle and print more money as the market trades against the dollar.

      My expectation is to see hyperinflation engulf the west around summer 2012. This gives us 2+ years to bounce around.

      I was bullish and had no short positions for many months until Alcoa earnings. I posted in your comments that I went short AA the day before earnings. I was paid handsomely. What I didn’t consider is that the same day was also the top for the entire market.

      I was foolish and believed the market was still in full bulltard mode and bought into SD heavily on the way down. When I saw it flounder intraday over and over again, I realized that this was not your usual dip. Then and only then did I change to a negative stance on the market.

      If you look at charts of companies highly levered to dollar and commodity valuations, such as SD or any gold stock, you will see a blow-off top formation on January 11. I believe that was the day the market started a new downward direction. It will take a similar high volume move to form the bottom. This has not happened yet, and I don’t believe it will happen until after the next black swan event, most likely occurring this spring.

      The only way hyperinflation will occur is when government is forced to ruin the economy through additional unsuccessful stimulus.

      Consider this for a moment. Why would Germany risk ruining its economic power to save the rest of Europe? Do you honestly think that Germany has completely forgotten its extreme nationalistic history? The Germans are very hard workers and they take pride in the German nation. They know where this is headed, and they aren’t going to be neighborly. Germany remembers World War 2, and still has the same attitude it had back then. Fuck the rest of the world, we are Germans, our Aryan Nation is better than everyone else.

    I am here. Sorry, I work 2nd shift, so I am gone around 3:00 and don’t get back till 1:00am. Anyway, I expected an up day today with the non-news from Iran and the news from Greece. I lightened up on my shorts at the beginning of the day, and will put them back on tomorrow. Good luck with your view, we are still in a downtrend. Only if we get past 1100 will I change my stance.
