Feeling Uneasy in this Great Big Bull Market

Things getting back to normal stocks are outperforming again this morning, sending the COVID19 vaccine stocks into the sewer. This has been a fairly consistent trade for more than two weeks, accentuated after Russia claimed to have a vaccine cure.

Meanwhile, breadth is once again dreadful and the sense of being trapped is once again all around me. Since I am fully invested, I have an anxious vibe all around me — mostly because the price action on the screen doesn’t mesh with reality.

On the other hand, selling short has been a suckers bet of magnanimous proportions since March. My plan, for now, is to manage my positions — harvest gains and cut losses when necessary. What I ought to be doing, what I am likely to do, is raise some cash and prepare for some sort of fucking downside — because the never-ending ride higher doesn’t feel the same and the narrow nature of this rally is bound to give way soon.

Just my two cents.

    Just a wee slump. We don’t need to arrange for an intervention do we?

    Re peaceful protests: Bret Weinstein has calculated that WWI was 81% peaceful …WWII was 85% peaceful …and the Kennedy motorcade in Dallas was 99.8% peaceful.
