Oct 7 2013 Weekend Market Comment

Oct 7 2013 – OK I am late but you will forgive me I was out of town buying a new car. Hey time to enjoy some profits. My advice to you this week is, enjoy some of your profits, because they are about to shrink. I will show most of my indicators are rolling over and this being October I am extra cautious of rollovers in October. Not to mention we are few years in to a record-breaking recovery that has been amazing.

First off here is a video from CNBC and you should take this stuff with a grain of salt. I only put it up here to show you that the market climbs a wall of worry. Yes I am raising cash but I am not predicting a massive sell off like Carter Worth is here. But it is interesting to watch.

So I am not expecting the apocalypse but I have been raising cash for a few weeks anticipating a good buying opportunity.

The YP primary sell continues the march into the abyss.



NYSE 50 day Overbought is looking toppy


As does the NASDAQ summation index

and the fear index the VIX is climbing again


Not good at all. Financial stocks are really taken out to the woodshed. Visa was my steady freddy marching ever upward. . .  right now it is being marked down. 

Canadian Mortgage company MCAP is selling off on a big earnings miss, the divided is now over 9% but stay clear until the dust settles on this one. 



So in any case the message is clear, up your trailing stops and you should have already sold your speculative issues. This is still a bull market, and you should not get short, but this could be quite a little dip here.

Seven Wonders of CBC Decision Making

You gotta love this, in semi-socialist Canada we have a government run TV network – the CBC. Think PBS with poor content and a way bigger budget. They decided to run a contest to select the “7 Wonders of Canada”. The results are typical of what a CBC committee would do and it shows why crown corporations have no business competing in the entertainment business. Here is the web page: http://www.cbc.ca/sevenwonders/the_judges.html
Talk about the Seven Wonders of CBC decision making: Can you believe that through the power of politically correct committee-think -- a canoe and an igloo are "wonders" in Canada -- but the CN Tower, Cathedral Grove and the Bay of Fundy are not? A wonder is a place you can visit and feel awed by; what tourist would travel to Canada to see a canoe? I assure you I did not go to Egypt to see a felucca, I wanted to see Pyramids that touch the sky. The CBC decision-making process is typical of New Age thinking, where the overriding concern seems to be no…

Yet another parabolic up week for the markets. Honestly folks valuations are really stretched here. The air is so thin at this altitude. Then again the markets can and do (on a short term basis) anything they want. Still I would expect a little pull-back in the next two weeks.


Lets see what is in the charts this week:
