Two weeks back, iBC labs issued a public announcement that trouble was brewing. Much like the nor’easter that drifted by last week, dire warnings were issued only to see little devastation and chaos come from it. However, the short bias had utility. Intra-day trading the short bias during the week spanning 3/6 – 3/10 yielded successful results.
For the week we had two neutral days, one range extension up, and two range extension downs. It was one of the first weeks in 2017 where sellers had any traction.
From a swing basis, the trade was wrong.
Having the post FOMC-rate hike reaction as a proxy for whether this trade was right or wrong was useful, as it provided a definitive answer to the question. It was wrong.
Under the surface of index prices there were some heavy blows to the energy and basic materials sectors, as well as financials and healthcare. Take a look at some of the losses endured from 3/6 – 3/10 from several industries:
All that being said, we have headed higher since the call was made, and prices have recovered handsomely across the board. Into the upcoming week, the Exodus Strategy Session offers no clear indication of where price is headed. There is one piece of data inside Exodus worth noting.

It has shown, simply, that buyers have pushed harder and more often than sellers. Until we see larger absolute numbers populating this column, iBankCoin laboratories is content sticking with the trend:

As for next week, iBC Labs have no data rolling in from the thousands of autonomous sensors deployed throughout the financial markets. The economic calendar is slow, and we have a full two week of March left. Therefore, we are content to issue a neutral rating, erring on the side of the bulls, going into the fourth week of the third month under our new American authoritarian regime.
