On Housing, Bonds, and Bubbles: Random Observations of a DeMark Trader

By Fil Zucchi  MAR 21, 2012 11:10 AM

As governments around the world go out of their way to save us from ourselves, the markets keep chugging.

 


Before leaving for a spring break vacation, I offer my latest observation on the economy and markets.

Editor's Note: At Minyanville we often argue that markets and stocks are driven by four primary attributes: the fundamentals, the technicals, the structural, and psychology. In this weekly piece, trader Fil Zucchi will attempt to digest these four measures to come to actionable recommendations, but with a couple of twists: Rather than relying on standard technical analysis, he will examine the technicals through the lenses of “DeMark” indicators. And rather than highlighting straight entry and exit points for stocks, he will use options to gain long / short exposure, control risk, and generate cash flow. Investors should note: This column will be written 1-2 days prior to publication, so by the time it appears the prices of the securities mentioned may have changed.
