Momentum Monday – The Other Side of Froth and People Love Pizza

Happy Monday…and fasten your seat belts!

As a reminder, Marketsmith (by Investor’s Business Daily) is now a sponsor of the weekly show. All the charts you have been seeing in the videos and will continue to see are from Marketsmith. They are offering my readers a three week trial for $19.95. Click this link if you would like to try it out.

Last Monday I wrote that ‘a little froth was fun‘. This week we are going to be seeing the other side of froth…with a side of Corona Virus.

Two Monday’s ago I shared a chart of the closed Chinese airports. Turns out that finally matters to traders and investors.

We are going to open deep in a red hole this morning. This whole might be a little different IF the reason is Corona Virus.

Technically and behavior wise, the froth and bullishness was pointing to a change in direction.

I thought this post from MacroCharts was excellent. He was pointing to something truly rare in the markets taking place. The gist:

Yesterday I questioned whether software was eating the world.

Of course Software is eating the world…Bitcoin is still hanging at $10,000 and Microsoft market cap is bigger than the all the energy stocks combined.


Even the best trends take breaks.

To prepare you for the week as always, Ivanhoff and I discuss the momentum and lack thereof on this week’s Momentum Monday. You can watch and or listen here.

It turns out that while we argue about technology, we are doing so over more and more pizza…

The hottest sectors right now are solar ($TAN $SEDG and $ENPH) and battery companies ($PLUG and $BLDP) and Gold. None of it interests me, but traders gonna trade.

Have a great week. I am heading to New York to work.
