Technical Trader Special Report- This Week’s Swing Trade Picks

Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave When First We Update a Spreadsheet from Fed Data

I got into a bit of a pickle this weekend when updating my Primary Dealer position and Financing charts. The spreadsheets that I use to create them are massive aggregations of multiple New York Fed data tables. I need to create dozens of linked tables to collect and aggregate that data into two coherent story telling charts.

I made one small change in one of the two workbooks by adding a couple lines to accommodate an extra week of data. Simple, right? That caused a series of cascading errors in the two linked worksheets. The New York Fed doesn’t make it easy, to aggregate this data. In fact, they make it nearly impossible, which is probably why I’m the only one crazy enough to try this at home.

I didn’t realize the error until I was finished and looked at the chart. It was trash. It was all trash.

I spent 3 hours, until midnight last night, rebuilding all of it, after spending 3 hours building it. So I don’t have a finished report on that data as I had intended, nor was I able to get to the technical report on Sunday night as I usually do.

That’s my sob story excuse for presenting the Technical Trader report for you in two parts this morning, which may be a better way to do it anyway. 😀 First, I’ll start with the chart picks, herein. I’ll get the technical market overview out to you well before New York opens.

If I’m lucky, I’ll get that Primary Dealer report out to Liquidity Trader Money Trends subscribers this morning also.

Thanks for your commiseration and support!

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish, 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.
