The bears den

I dont want to spoil the US stocks discussions thread with my bearish views. So I will create this thread, for posting any market views, which could be total rubbish, financial porn, zero hedge stuff.

i hold bearish views as well...just based on the technical charts alone for example S&P, it has lost major support levels from the previous highs from oct 18 last year and all the price is doing now is just a retracement so far, and not considered uptrend yet

let's see what happens for the next few weeks

There is no need to start a separate thread for US stocks discussions. The market is made up of different views. There is no value in a thread with just a lopsided view.

I am extremely bearish, that will piss off a lot of people and then they will get personal. Besides that thread is for US stocks, not necessarily macro view.

That's their problem. Not yours. I have this morning put across a bearish view as well. I dun care if people have an issue with that. At the end of the day, my trading pnl is all that matters. I am doing some analysis for fun and its my fun - not theirs so would not be bothered.

For all the attention on US and China, the market to get hit the most is South Korea. Not too far from their December lows. I think this is the best leading indicator of what is to come for global markets.

I sold off majority of my stocks into cash last Thursday.... Only major position is OCBC which I am almost holding the bag... A pity the XD took place too late.

Actually I can relate the formation of this thread.

I used to frequent the casinos a lot, and sometimes I always play in my own rules rather than the "norm"

then everyone will start cursing me

luckily being a 100kg bbfa does offer some physical protect when wagering it out offline helps too

Are you always extremely bearish, or only during this period?

I feel its hard to be bearish, as in the thread said, the norm is everything appreciating... from ETF, time deposits, structures, etc... a huge majority are pumping additional cash ( which they do not need and dun care about ) into the markets.
And these people will not panic sell because they sort of "forgot about it".....

And to be honest... I kidda got stuck in a short position because......



I posted this last week in edmw. I buy high sell low lolx

and besides i am puny fry player, so i wanted to add a bit more excitement to my trading experience since the amount is small by being more dramatic lolx

theMKR, yes people have been conditioned that equities will always go up in the long term. This is not true. Markets go up and go down as well. There is no guarantee that markets won't be down for an extended period of time. But bulls don't believe this.

Making money in the markets by just buy and hold, cannot be so easy, that is too good to be true. There is reward and there is risk. Bulls love the reward but forget the risk.

After 10 years of relentless bull run, it is time to pay the bills by th bulls.

If you are trying to short the market, you need lots of ammunition, the bulls could have their way for a long time, but eventually markets will crash when they least expect it.

I am out of the markets and waiting for the crash.

The other thing you cannot ignore is how the Trump admin has been relentlessly pumping up the markets that deal is imminent. Now what about their accountability, when the trade war has worsened?

There was absolutely no need to come out and comment about the deal until it was done. But they kept on giving a positive twist to rig the markets up.

Do you want to participate on the long side of such rigged markets? Are you absolutely sure Trump admin can prevent a crash in the markets forever?
