Commodities Hammered; Stocks Rise

Markets had a superb day, rising nearly 90 NASDAQS, in spite of abject weakness in the commodity sector. I suppose the so called ‘reflation’ trade is on hold, as everything else melts higher?

Gold and silver were down 0.8% and 1.22%, respectively.

WTI was lower by 1.3% to $44.38.

Copper, being the sole outlier, was higher by 0.98%.

The action in stocks can only be construed as positive. Good news is good news. Bad news is good news. Until that changes, your allocation to the market should be long. More to that point, you shouldn’t bother with laggards, since markets are hitting new highs. Things in motion tend to stay in motion. New record highs beget more record highs.

Hence, and this goes without saying, pursuing an active portfolio that is based around ‘chasing alpha’ is the preferred and only viable allocation for a tape like this.
