Thoughts on today and going into Tomorrow
I added to some of my shorts today: XRT, NFLX, AAPL, JNK, HYG, PEB, HZO, XLY, TSLA. There are no signs here that the bear market is over. The yield curve is completely inverted and the 10YR seems to have peaked and we could start seeing people pile into bonds. And after big down turns in the market, it is typical to see big bounces, but I would not be long equities, crypto, or commodities here.
That’s all for now,
