Stocks are up on bad news? Now what?

Weekly Broad Stock Market Levels
Last week we pointed out the importance of the U.S. Dollar and how it is breaking global markets. The higher the dollar goes, the more we see global inflation rise. This led to the Bank of England reversing course with inflation high, and now we are seeing various European countries follow this trend. With China and Japan, now, as net sellers of our debt, who will step in and buy treasuries? Rates will have to go up to find buyers and with the US debt load at elevated levels, there isn’t much room before the FED likely has to step in.
This week, we look at how the US dollar made a lower high, while the broad market made a lower low. This divergence, along with many other stocks and markets not following the S&P 500 lower, had us on high alert for a market reversal. We may go down one more level, but the extremes we are seeing both sentiment and selling pressure rival what we saw in March of 2009. Eventually, there is no one left to sell, which we believe could be playing out right now.
We think a year-end stock market bounce is underway. As a result, we took off half of our hedge when the S&P 500 was below 3500 and went on a buying spree this morning, where we bought 2 semiconductor plays and a cloud play, one of which is up 20% since we sent out trade notifications to our readers. Now we need to follow through. There are 3 big-picture patterns that we believe are playing out, and in this video, we identify the overhead levels to start getting cautious again.
I detail this for you more below and also feel free to check out my weekly webinars on YouTube where I discuss broad market levels.
