MDM has switched to a BUY signal. The PCE and CPI numbers have been bullish for the markets as they anticipate these numbers to drop further. But of concern are still the sticky components of inflation which could keep these numbers elevated for prolonged periods of time. In consequence, this is intended to be a potentially quick trade as we will keep stops tight to minimize risk while riding the trend. Despite China reducing interest rates, US and global M2 liquidity have remained on a loose downtrend with slightly lower highs and lower lows which acts as a headwind for stocks. On the other hand, this remains one of if not the most bifurcated markets driven primarily by AI-related stocks. Some of the largest blue chip names which are heavily weighted in the major indices such as the NASDAQ and S&P 500 are involved with AI technology. NVDA, GOOG, AAPL, AMZN, META, and MSFT are some examples. This has pushed these major averages into uptrends though they have been taking a pause over the last month while the broader based markets in both stocks and crypto remain questionable at best.
