The Bond King Says: WE’RE IN A BEAR MARKET

Does it matter if we’re in a bear market or not? It’s just a label. But prices are sucking lower and bulltards are getting wiped the fuck out clean — removing them physically from their money. I’ll have you know, I am getting LIT THE FUCK UP in my long term account today, but somewhat hedged in my short term with gains in gold, FAZ, and DRIP.

I stepped in and bought some EGO today, thinking the recent bull market in gold lifts junior miners like EGO. There is a potential large upside in a piece of shit like EGO. I do not pretend to know the first thing about gold mining — but I know sentiment and numbers and people are scared AF, in search for havens.

My longs in my trading account will remain until my 10% stops are met. The point of having both longs and shorts is to profit from the spread, which I am doing so today. I was not 100% short because I was cautious. Today I am emboldened by the action to get even MOAR bearish — but, truthfully, it’s times like this that produce sellers exhaustion or some sort of tweet that buoy stocks.

My bias is inexorably for lower prices. However, I am not positioned to make a grande sum on the downside just yet. I am uneasy to short too much into the hole.

Here’s that Gundlach clip.

    Ah, Mr. Fly. Investor confidence is well and truly shattered. We’re not going anywhere near ATH anytime soon.

    Utilities had their worst day in (large number) of weeks -3.4%

    They couldn’t have had worse timing: they are forming a double-top on a 1-yr time frame.

    They are the poster child for “dividend stocks” This would indicate that investors are rushing out to buy bonds instead of even low-risk stocks, which is very bad news for bulls.

    If XLU does not make an ATH this week, then I’m going to buy Feb deep OTM puts on high-risk stocks.
