MARKET TUMBLES INTO THE CLOSE; THE FLY IS A MAN OF PROPERTY NOW

It was a tumultuous day, one of extreme volatility, as investors sashayed between fear and greed. It ended poorly, with the Nasdaq ABSCONDING with its gains into the close — ending down 33. HOWEVER, I get the sense this set up is designed to reduce the morale of men like DAVEY TRADER PORTNOY in favor of men with property.

Le Fly partook in a bit of a gambit today, delving into the unprofitable world of REITs today. I sojourned into it with my eyes wide open, but have hopes of massive amounts of greed taking place soon.

Here were my closed out trades for the day.

(SOXS -7.3%)
(JETS -6.6%)
(M -9.8%)
SBSW +24.5%
GRPN +20.5%
BIDU +4.7%
LK +11.1%
RGLD +23%
GOLD +14.7%
AG +9%
SAND +16%

I am presently 60% long, 40% cash. My longs are EXTREME gambles in mortgage and REITs and one retailer. I am doing this because I believe there is more bounce to come. If I am wrong, I will quickly stop out and shut the fuck up.

As a man of property, I expect all of you to pay rent or be evicted. Furthermore, I expect new laws to be enacted forbidding those without land and title the right to vote.

MY TIME OUT HAS ENDED — BEHOLD THESE GAINS

You rotten sons a bitches. I stepped out for 2 hrs and markets RIPPED +1,000 points of DOW. The JETS AND M sales were done in error, as hindsight is now my guide. But that’s only part of the narrative. Le Fly had other IRONS IN THE FIRES that he has since relinquished, shifting, rather shift-fully, into a 90% cash position.

HERE WERE THE RESULTS

SBSW +24.5%
GRPN +20.5%
BIDU +4.7%
LK +11.1%
RGLD +23%
GOLD +14.7%
AG +9%
SAND +16%

See pal, that’s who I am and you’re nothing. Good Father? FUCK YOU GO HOME AND PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS.

It’s funny, really, you sitting there judgmentally looking to fuck with me and then I post these GAINS, all verified and legitimized by the thousand trader army I have inside Exodus. That’s really all there is to it. Is there anything else to say?

For my next trick, a BIG BALL’D approach to bear market rallies.

GOT WHIPPED N SAWED; GOING FOR A WALK

Into the bell yesterday I bought some SOXS — because I was in the zone and knew what I was doing. Futures flubbed hard last night and I felt supreme. Then Dr. Benjamin Bernanke ruined everything this morning and made me FOMO — forcing my hand to sell SOXS and then make HEINOUS sins and buy a variety of SHIT stocks. These purchases were immediately reviled inside Exodus — with my enemies poking fun at me and having a jolly good time at my expense.

This bullying made me concrete in my desires to flay them alive and also win on these longs. I was, in fact, one of the cool kids now and I wanted the lambos and the other shit that HODLers get for waiting around for shit to happen. Instead I got a HARD FORK to the fucking face.

Today’s results, thus far.

(SOXS -7.3%)
(JETS -6.6%)
(M -9.8%)

This all happened in a matter of minutes, as I quite literally timed the top. I corrected my error and although I was tempted to SELL SHORT and see it all burn down, I flagged myself for FUCKERY — 2hr time out to go fuck myself for being an asshat. I find that when I disjoint from the markets, it’s best to not compound errors and do nothing instead. I had been on a great run, it’d be a shame if I ruined it all by flubbing the volatility fueled tick-tock.

BERNANKE TRIES TO ASSUAGE MARKETS, SAYS DECLINE MORE AKIN TO NATURAL DISASTER THAN TO GREAT DEPRESSION

Dr. Benjamin “Blunt Smoking” Bernanke is back and badder than ever. In an interview with CNBC, Dr. B laid down the law and told fuckers how it’s gonna be — categorizing the decline to a natural disaster than some depression of greatness. He then went into how shit was about to get real scary, but also how we’d bounce back strongly.

In other news, Ackman sold his ‘hedges’ that he said he DID NOT HAVE that amounted to $2b and deployed it long into Hilton, Starbucks, and other stocks. When he went on teevee last week to scare the shit out of people, and suggest Hilton and everything else would go to zero without a total lockdown of the country, he was pretty clear about being long. But apparently, NOT TRUE, and he took the $2b he made SHORT now to buy MOAR longs.

Futures recovered sharply after hearing Bernanke, from -100 NASDAQS to positive.

DR. DOOM: A GREATER DEPRESSION IS COMING

I know you passed your series 7 and you manage money for successful people. But you’re an idiot, truly and wholly. Instead of spit-balling from your FEEEEEEEEELINGS, let’s listen to an actual Phd in economics — Dr. Roubini — NYU

In short, we’re fucked. But watch. What do you have to lose? Hang on, I know what you’re going to say: “FUCK THAT GUY HE’S BEEN WRONG FOR A DECADE.”

WRONG and we’ve been rigging like a motherfucker for a decade. This is when you listen to guys like Nouriel because he’s smart and see the risks. Whether we are able to paper over those risks is another story. But he is excellent at telling you what the problems are that need to be addressed.

“THE ECONOMY IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO SURPRISE TO THE DOWNSIDE.”

MARKETS ENJOY BIGGEST SPIKE SINCE 2008; BUT NOTHING IS OVER

It’s one of those annoying narratives that Wall Street loves to barrel into, the everlasting ‘retesting of the lows’. While stocks are higher today with verve, let’s not forget we are DEPENDING on Congress to pass the stimulus bill and we’re also still locked the fuck down.

Now there are a slew of analysts out today telling us to buy NVDA and banks and how the lockdown will soon end. But I’m not so sure about that, based on the evidence. As such, I bought and sold FAS today, for a +5.4% rip, sold out of my overnight SOXL for +25% and will hold onto all of my gold positions, and more — because of reports that there is a shortage of physical gold in the market place now due to closure of mines.

Today’s spike is representative of the largest spike since 2008. The V-TARDS are out in FULL FORCE, claiming to have inside knowledge on how COVID-19 works and how everyone is going to be rich again and how nothing can stop markets from steaming back to record highs.

Want to make a bet?

The CMBS market is in tatters. Everything is being held together by the Fed’s printing press. The govt is now the caretaker for 350m Americans and industry is stalled at -90% by mandate. This is hardly the time to feel your oats.

STEEL YOURSELVES lads, for the fires burn bright in the not so distant future. Be ready for them making themselves know by charring the Vtards first.

SHORT SQUEEZE INTO THE BELL

This is not the tape to fade, at least not yet. We’ve got a wall of worry 1,000 ft high that needs to be climbed. The trolls from deep underneath the bowels of the earth and rampaging thorough-out the countryside, eating all of the strawberries and drinking all of the cream. Those evil men, orcs, will be dispatched soon.

My position is to trade gingerly, but not in an effeminate manner. I have balls the size of cannon grape, but I don’t feel particularly brave now, so I will trade small in size, but BIG in concept. I am very long gold — because the recent declines in the miners have been wildly overdone. Also, I like some piece of shit stocks that have ample levels of cash, one of which was bought inside Exodus today.

The orcs will tell you to sell short now. I think they’re wrong. Eventually, they will be right, as the demand for “retesting the lows” grows. For now, markets want higher. I stand by my opinion that your long term portfolios should be in cash in favor of a more direct approach. to investing — trading the ranges.

Enjoy the fervor for the fires still burn in the distance.

Optimism Strikes Wall Street; Stocks Soar

Big rally based on stimulus bill and maybe some hope that we won’t be holed up for months. Before jumping to conclusions, let’s just agree that an oversold bounce was in order.

I was long SOXL and I sold it this morning for +25%.

My other positions are gold and I’m keeping them because the Fed is literally giving away money. European markets are all up 7%; but gold is the standout — higher by 5%.

I might visit the short side, or not. One thing is for sure, I’m not trading now with markets +1,000 and it’s only 10am. Let it settle in for a bit and then I’ll take a trade or two.

BIG MOVES COMING — Markets Are Broken

The Fed intervention in investment grade paper today caused everyone to jump into LQD and out of HYG and other ‘covenant lite’ bonds like LEVERAGED LOANS.

LOOK AT THIS SHIT.

Massive downside moves in banks — BAC off by 8%. The reason being is because those assholes own all of the debt — the leveraged loan debt and the oil and gas debt and all of the CMBS debt that fueled our wonderful economy for the past decade. This is a worst case scenario for banks.

HOWEVER, I am reticent to be short here — as we can see govt working OVERTIME to jimmy rig stocks higher. This will not save us — but the whips are vicious and if you get caught the wrong way — you’ll be fucked.

Today’s closed trades.

FAZ +10.5%
FAZ +8.2%
TNXP -15%
(ODP -11.5%)
SOXL +11.2%
SOXL +6.1%
FAZ +1.6%

I had a 2x position in FAZ over the weekend, booked it and went long SOXL at 2x because of an average down. I ended up on that too and finally swung around with FAZ and closed it out for a small gain. I was afraid to be short overnight.

I think we bounce, not because it makes sense — but because it’s rigged.

I’m also heavily long some gold miners, liking today 5% lift in gold and -582 on the Dow. This is a perfect time for gold bugs to shine.

NO MORE PREDICTIONS — JUST TRADE

I give up trying to predict the market. The Fed is throwing everything at markets now and there is a global coordinated effort to CRUSH the status quo and toss economies at scale into the sewers. The net result is people are spending more time at home with their families. God willing you have some money squirrel away, otherwise this is a very arduous and stomach churning process. To those people I am deeply empathetic.

For us traders, this is literally a best case environ for markets. This morning I ripped out a +10% trade on FAZ, reversed it and went 2x long SOXL and just sold that for 10%. I own a little gold and also this LOGM, which hasn’t run alongside ZM — for reasons that escape me.

Markets were down almost a thousand earlier and I was -10% on SOXL, very close to selling. The reason why I held is because Tepper came on teevee and starting to calm fuckers down and then I figured we might get a post European close bump, which is typical these days. I was right, so I booked it. Although markets look good, no one knows really — so why guess?

Banks are still fucked and down sharply and the news flow is ruinous. I hope you’ve been able to carve out some gains in this tape. If not, and this goes without saying, come join us in Exodus for some fish.

In other news, founder of Barstools sports is literally gambling away $3m of his own money in stocks, now that sports is banned. It’s hilarious to see how smart people can be so stupid when it comes to money.

His “portfolio”, trading a $3m account with DELAYED quotes.

His livestream.
