- No. That's a very good point. I'll even note this too. If you go into the Yahoo Finance platform and you look at the stats or the valuation multiples that Micron's trading at, five times for earnings. Now, on a relative basis, that's well below the market multiple. Perhaps your first thought is this is a cheap stock. But when you hear a company out here warning this significantly about margins, profits, and sales, you will quickly realize that cheap may not be cheap enough.

Cash is king right now. Markets are insane, how low is low ?
Bad news keep piling up, it seems there is no ending for the bear markets. Luckily bear markets are much shorter than bull markets. Are we there yet ? I do expect many companies are lining up for chapter 11 and financing would be difficult under this type of environment.

(A) Weeds
Lower lows, lower highs and there is no sign of bottoming.
Image

(B) GDXJ/SILJ
SILJ is at long term support, potential bounce here. I do anticipating it will break down from the support line and capitulate.
Image

GDXJ approaching major long term support, buying around $25 would be rewarding.
Image

(C) $VIX
$VIX round bottom pattern. I do anticipating it will spike very hard to form a symmetric pattern.
Image

(D) FXI may have bottomed and back to up trend channels.
Image

(E) $USD
$USD is still bulling, I do anticipate more interest rates increase this year.

Image

Image

(F)$MSWORLD
Still bearish and I do expect it will do down below 1700

Next update - 7th Aug

(A) Daily charts

I am a bear and my view is bias. The bounce so far is non impressive and may be short lived. $VIX is back testing 200D MA while $USD reverses (bulling) along 50D MA. IWM,$CNDX,$TSE (200D MA as first resistance) are very close to resistance.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

(B) Weekly charts

For all the parabolic runs, they have to pull back at least to the mean. Since I think this a bear market, sp will fall below the mean.

Missing the forest through the trees, investors fail to realize that some companies have succumbed to the medium-term realities sooner than others. For context, I’ve been bullish on the U.S. economy for some time, and I still am RIGHT NOW. However, with each Fed rate hike and each passing quarter, that will change materially, and so should investors’ optimism.

11:49 AM

I am bearish with the markets and I am only using my last year profit for speculation. Clearly my view is biased.

$VIX - spike potential stop around 40
$USD - pull back from the triple tops but I do anticipate it will eventually break out from the triple top.
IWM - lower highs, lower lows. The underneath gap acts as support
$CDNX - still in downtrend. Breaking out from the trendline will be bullish
$SMH - lower highs, lower lows. Potential drops to 200-wk MA 172.86
$NDX - lower highs, lower lows. Potential drops to 200-wk MA
SPHQ - lower highs. Potential drops to 200-wk MA
$HUI - back test the breakout/40-week MA 266.35
worst beaten stocks (MJ,PYPL,PTON0 - lower highs, lower lows for weekly chart. Break all lows

Note:- next update will be 1st June.

$VIX is still at higher lows and hop over along 200D MA, General markets are at higher risk. IWM is still working on its way up and looks quite constructive. SMH, QQQ look suspicious and pull back may continue while SPX is quite constructive and on its way to retest the this year top. Some stocks such as ARKK, PAYPL.. beaten down to a very attractive level. FXI potential move back to the long term up trend channels while $HUI would potential break out from the long term resistance. MJ is very attractive at double bottoms with OGI chart at higher lows. Many beaten down stocks are at extreme level and look quite attractive. My favorite sectors are :- Weeds, China, Green, U, Gold/Silver, Nat Gas, Bitcoin, rare earth (not in any particular order).

China's stocks were up 30-40% after FXI reached oversold area and DID was up more than 100%+ since the low. IWM bounced from long term support leading to breakout for many small caps such as EV, Clean energy, crypto.. Weed stock GRWG is in breaking out mode and I do anticipate more weed stocks will follow. $HUI pulled back and looking to back test the breakout while ICLN, SMH, QQQ,SPY were breaking out. $AUDUSD broke out with $CADUSD on the verge of breaking out. $VIX is still at higher lows but lower highs.

Last week many commodities such as metals, gold, silver, oil, natural gas, coal, uranium, green energy, fertilizer, wheat, US dollar.. shot up and paused on Friday. Chinese stock FXI broke down from the uptrend channel and weeds stock are still in bottoming process. Abnormal volume occurred for many small caps stocks.
This week with the Ukraine crisis still going on, FOMC meeting and Quad witching, volatility continue. It is highly possible commodities are going to pull back with US dollar going up. $VIX is still constructive and the General Markets are vulnerable with MJ possibly bottom this week.

Part Two
Currencies

With Euro funds seeking for safety , the all mighty US dollar is going to benefit. It is quite easy for $USD to exceed 100. JMHO
$AUDUSD is breaking out from the resistance while $CADUSD is right at resistance. Gold is forming a beautiful cup and handle and not even oversold. Silver broker out from the resistance and potentially catch up with gold and break out from the consolidation.
Silver is not oversold.

There will be many charts for this week commentary and I will split into different posts.

Part One
General Markets


Crisis is still on for Ukraine with Russian ETF RSX reached decade low and was halted on Friday. Global inflation is more serious and that will impact on worldwide GDP, some sectors such as gold/silver, metals, agriculture products, energy, defense, semi conductors and cyber security may benefit from the crisis and more charts will be presented in different posts.

The world markets excluding US are still correcting without reaching oversold area while China FXI has reached decade major support. China today lowered its GDP target to 5.5 per cent for this year. Euro markets are down to support but not in oversold area and may go further down. Polish ETF EPOL is a disaster and has reached three years major support without reaching oversold area, potentially with more further downside.
Volatility continues for US markets and the markets are still vulnerable for more downside. $CDNX is still flagging.

This week is all about Ukraine, it is very difficult to predict short term movement. The whole week is quite volatile and the robots trade in perfection (with the aid of zero commission). Metal futures expired Thurs added in further volatility.

(A) Russian/Polish stocks

RSX, POLY.L were down to major support and may be bottom here. EPOL was also down to major support and may go down further.

Image

Image

Image

(B) General Market
General markets bounced with investors speculator in natural gas, chips, materials, u sectors. $ViX is still in higher lows and the markets are still vulnerable. $HUI/GDX potential peak here and the breakout from the downtrend is non decisive.

Since I am still expecting a low during March-Apr time frame, I am using the daily charts for short term movement.
$VIX is at higher highs and higher lows, this indicates the markets are potentially going to the south. Proceed with cautious with the upcoming March quad witching. JMHO
GDX and $HUI marginally broke out this week with $WTIC still in topping process and close to major resistance around $100. Metal futures such as Gold, Silver, Platinum, Copper futures rollover this coming Thurs. Gold miners would potentially pull back next week.

(A) Potential death cross
SMH,SPHQ,$NDX,DRIV,$INDU

(B) Death cross
LIT,IHI

(C) Death cross with potential bear flag
$SML,$MID,URA,$CDNX,IWM,BLOK,$RLX

(D) Golden cross

$VIX spiked on last Thursday and continue on Friday because of potential war in Ukraine, people are speculated in gold, base metals and energy sectors. This type of speculation is usually short lived. JMHO
$SML, $MID, SPHQ, SMH are in lower highs, lower low and $VIX is still uptrend. I am still expecting General markets low in March-Apr time frame.

General Markets bounced last week and it seems there is enough energy to get higher. However the worst performance stocks such as weed stocks, stay home stocks such as ROKU,PTON... and others like CAR, GME... are still seeking the bottom. Small caps and mid caps are not reaching low enough and I think they will at least back test the breakout. The high quality SP 50 ETF could potentially resume the bull trend and need to be closely monitored. $VIX can bounce anytime with $USD potentially heading to 200D MA (divergence). There are conflict signals but all in all I am still expecting the low in March-April time frame and I won't make my move until the dead cross occur in $VIX.
