Japan and other countries saw the week open lower as 3 June could be a shocking week for global equity markets. We are warning and cautioning our readers as this week could be one like we saw during December 2018. Keep in mind that the global equity market and oil market will likely receive shocks from comments by the Trump White House, the Chinese Leadership and the Leadership in Iran. And as global equity markets break down the key will be trying to adjust positions.
PLEASE USE CAUTION. One common mistake that many investors make is to try to pick a key dip level and buy. This can work and still works in some cases but keep in mind that many of the formulas – I have used some to advise investors in the past – do not work as well as they did in the past. So the temptation that you feel to re-establish new positions, especially on the long side when the market is collapsing requires one rule – PLEASE wait another 24 to 48 hours before getting back in. Remember the breakdown for several weeks, then the short-sell ratios, and the negative excess divergence discussions we had? Throw them out the window for the next month or two.
Just our views……..more later this week.
