Here’s Who Loses When Technical Indicators Are Bullish but Liquidity is Bearish

Bullish indications mean that we must assume that the bulls remain in control until proven otherwise, regardless of the bearish liquidity forces (See latest Liquidity Trader report) over the next three weeks. A bull move in stocks would raise the specter of a selloff in the bond market to support a stock rally, because there won’t be enough cash around to support rallies in both. But that’s not our problem.  We just need to be on the right side of the move, whatever it is.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish LiquidityTrader.com, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.

    Hi Lee,
    I am a subscriber to your Liquidity Trader but I think that Technical Trader my be more informative to my requirements. I am of the opinion that one will miss out on daily views from your wealth of market knowledge without receiving your ” Daily market setup” which I have not received since May 18 2020. Although your Liquidity Trader analysis is exelent I believe that I may require the Tech Trader to see the full picture and make informed decisions for my portfolio .
    I would appreciate your valued opinion as I am fairly new to this way of building my holdings.

    Thanks Jim- Thanks for the kind words! Always appreciated.

    For any subscription related questions, please contact me directly via the contact form on the Liquidity Trader Subscriber Support page.

    I write free articles from time to time here on Wall Street Examiner. I have no set schedule for those. I use WSE as a kind of focus group test for different ideas. I know that anyone who is interested in Liquidity Trader is likely to be someone who has visited WSE in the past, and returns when the market starts to look shaky.

    I liked the Daily Market setup and the posts did seem to generate conversions to Liquidity Trader subscriptions for a few weeks. But then that stopped and the readership of those posts also fell as the market rallied. That was the market telling me not to waste my time. It seems that many readers over the years only want to hear what I think when I’m bearish as hell. When I’m bullish, even if cynically so, they don’t want to hear it. 😊

    When the market starts to decline again, no doubt readers will return and I’ll feel motivated to resume posting free articles more regularly. In the meantime I’ll use the mornings doing something productive, like enjoying the sunshine and sea on the Zadar waterfront promenade! 😉
